Tuesday Sketch Challenge #74 by Mercy


I thought this sketch challenge was a fun one so I thought I'd give it a try although I didn't follow it exactly!  Let me know what you think!! 
I had this stamp set out making my son's teacher "end of year" gift and just had to ink it up again!
My friend, Jen Carter, and I recently were on the "hunt" for the CHA exclusive stamp set from last summer.  Well thanks to Jen, I am now the proud owner of this set.....Floral Fusion!!  I know this will be one of those sets that I go to again and again!!  Thanks Jen!


I am LOVING this color combination.......Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Kraft, and Spring Moss!!!
I recently received my new scallop die from PTI (my first one was defective) and I find myself grabbing for it over and over!! 

This card uses the "rock 'n roll" technique.....which for this flower image works great! 
I with held adding any "bling" to the center of the flowers as I wanted the flower colors to shine!!
Can you tell that I over stamped Background Basics:  Text Style there in tea dye inks? 
My tea dye duo is dying...literally!!!
I will have to place another in my cart the next time I order!!


Here is the sketch I based this card off of..........


Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such nice comments!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
