Sweet Sunday Sketch #60

Here we are...already Sweet Sunday Sketch #60!?!? WOW! I have to admit, I was a little nervous about this sketch. Those flowers had me all intimidated! And yes, I knew they didn't REALLY have to be flowers, but still....I'm not much of an embellishment kind of girl, so I had to do some serious thinking about this one:

But then it came to me as I was digging through my pile of stamps that were in need of some love. And look!! I actually DID make them flowers!!

I'm really happy with how this turned out. I got to play with some new paper that arrived in the mail the other day, the Ducks in a Row collection from October Afternoon. And I got my Blooming Button Bits stamp set (PTI) inky for the 2nd time ever. I inked up the trio of flowers three times, in SU's barely banana, Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink - then cut one flower out of each color. I added a PTI button to the center of each and popped them up on dimensionals. AND, I have one of 4 Mother's Day cards I'll need this year done WAY ahead of time!! (that NEVER happens, so BONUS!).

be sure to stop by the other Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch...
Karen M. and Nancy are both sitting out this week, but their blogs are so full of wonderful inspiration I went ahead and linked them up anyway. If you're anything like me, you'll probably find at least SOMETHING there to kickstart your MoJo!! :-)

Then play along with us and post your own creation using InLinkz over on Karen's Blog!

Have a great week!!
