Floral Birthday Sketch

Well.....am I a lucky stamper or what??!!  I have been busy this month and luckily the Challenges for both of my Thursday teams have fallen into place and let me combine challenges.  Thanks!!!

For this week I challenge the CCEE team to make a card using this skech with the twist that there must be florals involved.

Vicki challenge the Stampin B's team to make a birthday card.

I used this floral stamp from Innovative Stamp Creations along with an unmounted birthday stamp.  I used the silver hodgepodge from SU to hide a 'sentiment goof'.......I really was not going to remake the whole card when that was the last touch.  Now you know why I often don't put sentiments on the fronts of my cards.....they ruin my design 9 times out of ten!!!

Here are the links to get to the team blogs.....

I love the coloring. You're right, the copics are really great to get that shading. It really shows on this card. Just beautiful. I still think the skill of the maker has a lot to do with it. Great job

So beautiful, Jo! The colors are so vibrant, and your framed sentiment is a great accent piece. Thanks for another great sketch design; this one was particularly cool!
