Stamping 411 Sketch 194

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to another Saturday Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411 

Here is the sketch:


…and my sweet little interpretation. I really love this little “Sweet Summer” Set. I’ve found it to be so versatile. I’ve been itching to use Garden Green. Not sure why as it’s one of my least favorite colors….but I wanted to. Well I kind of like it now. I’m trying to use more color in my cards……and Garden Green pairs beautifully with Pink Pirouette.

 Sweet Summer 004

Card is pretty straight forward Card base is cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half Pink Layer is 4 x 5 1/4. I used scraps to stmp the images on and punch out with my 1 1/4 “ circle punch and then the green circle is punched with the 1 3/8 punch.

I cut two little butterfly's out and added a bee for good measure. Topped it off with a double bow of white taffeta and a scrap of Garden Green in my Scallop Edge Punch.

That’s it for today. Hope you’ll take a little time for you and join us over at the Stamping 411 sketch challenge this week.

Thanks for stopping in.
