Sketch Plus Three Challenge

I made this card to play along with Joanne Basile's Sketch Plus Three challenge, celebrating her 500,000th hit on her blog.  Joanne provided the sketch and a list of nine options you could include on your card, you had to pick at least three. I thought that was a fun and creative challenge and managed to use four of the items on my card - text printed papers (the peach background paper), kraft paper (the card base), bling (Stickles in the heart in her hair and black and gold Spica pens to color her shoes) and paper piecing (her dress).

I used two different Pure Innocence stamps - My Basket of Eggs and Flower Girl.  I stamped the flower from the Flower Girl image three times and placed it, along with some grass paper in the basket in place of the eggs.  Then I covered the flowers with some Spring Flower Soft.

The patterned papers are from the Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane and Life's Portrait Combo Pack and the ribbon roses are from Webster's Pages Bloomers Spring 2010.  I cinched the Bloomers up between the flowers, added the buttons and tied the bows with twine.

Hope you're enjoying your  Memorial Day Weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
