Market Street Sketch Challenge!

Today starts the new Sketch Challenge over on the Market Street Stamps blog.  We'd love to see your creations using Market Street Stamps and our sketch.  BTW, did you see the post over on the Market Street blog yesterday?  It was my first DT post.....I am still pinching myself that I am on this fantastic team and not to mention I get awesome stamps to play with too!

The sketch:


My card:



I had to alter the sketch just a teensy bit........I put my sentiment on my flower panel and not at the top.  And before you ask, YES, I did cut my stamp.  I wanted to stamp the top of the flower separate from the stem.  Just a few little snips and it was done.  The center of my flower is the mini rolled rose die from MFT.  Folks, I've had this die from the beginning and it's fabulous.  Now for my card, I actually did try my hand at a rolled flower that I hand cut........No way was I using that thing!  Turned out horrible.  Why reinvent the wheel I say!! 

Have a great Wednesday!

I love it, Amy! YAY for you that you get all their stamps to play with because I think they are AWESOME. Really and truly! I might be addicted. :) But back to your card - I think this color combo is great!

They're harder by hand...

but until I get these dies that you and Laurie use that make me swoon...
hand cut it is :(

Oh you naughty girl! Cutting stamps! LOL Kidding! My mom does it all the time and I have to close my eyes when she does it. I think it's the permanence of such an action! LOL I LOVE the rolled flower for the center! I had a tough time cutting my own and rolling as well. They just don't turn out the same! I'm going to check out this die! :) Your card turned out so pretty - love the touch of green from the stem!

Hey girl girl!!! I love the card and layout and of course you know I love the rolled flower :) I have a ton of barrette clips and I make the rolled flowers in all different color card stock and put a pearl in the middle and then put them on the barrette ...... I fit 3 on there and I know Peyton would look SO ADORABLE with one... can I send you one in her favorite colors or do you want me to send you a couple of the barrette bases?? I do a pony first because the girls hair is so silky and then clip in in after!!! xoxoxo
