Crazy4Challenges (and sketches too)

Lynda is the Crazy4Challenges hostess for June, and for her final weekly challenge, she has given us a fabulous sketch to use.

I used the newly released set Poppies Poppies Poppies by Mark's Finest Papers for my image.  I just love these flowers in just about any color combo.  I used Crumb Cake, Vanilla, and River Rock cardstock\ and Vanilla grossgrain, all from SU.  I did some paper piercing, CB'd the panels, and finished it off with some flourishes of bling.

I will also be entering this into the Speedy's Friends Challenge which was to use bling.

Be sure to stop in to see the many creations that result from this one sketch.  They will dazzle you, I am sure!!!!  So.....go to the Crazies Blog for inspiration!!!!
