Inspired By a Sketch and Flickr Friends!

Hi there!

I just realized this is my fourth post in a week. I know it won't last, but it sure has been enjoyable having more time to craft and blog!

Tonight I have a really fun card to show you. After seeing a couple of Flickr Friends using a cool sketch from Nichole Heady's blog, I just had to try it out for myself! You can see Lin's gorgeous card here
and Betty's beautiful card here.

I'm having a difficult time putting away this adorable paper from Echo Park, so I used it again for this card. If you know me at all, you know I LOVE pink and green! Just makes me happy! :)



Isn't that a neat sketch? I just love the unique design! I actually stretched out my folds a bit further, all the way to the corners. The flowers are from a cling set by Hero Arts called, Three Dotted Flowers - one of my faves! The sentiment is also Hero Arts and I cut this one apart too - been doing that a lot lately. This one was a toughie - had to cut really slowly and carefully because the words were set quite close together.

Okay, that's it for now - heading to bed. Hope everyone's week is going well! :)
