Sketch Something

Good morning, happy Friday!!

Oh, I love Fridays! Another week over and the weekend on the way! Hope you all have some fun things planned! Today also means a new challenge over on Stamp Something! And this week we have a sketch for you, created by our DT member Emily! Thanks Emily! We also have Layers of Color as our sponsor this week and they have generously donated 3 stamp sets for one lucky participant! Head over to Stamp Something to check everything out and be sure to take a look at all the fantastic DT samples too!

The card I made for the challenge uses the stamp set Polka Dot Love, from Layers of Color. It's a great set for creating backgrounds as well as focal images! I had fun pairing it with some Urban Prairie paper from BasicGrey.

The cardstock colors are SU! Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, and Black. I used one piece of the BasicGrey paper and then stamped some floral images to create some of my own patterned papers. I also embossed one layer with the Swiss Dots folder and my CB. The final layer is the main image which is individual flower petals and a thank you sentiment.

I hope you'll join us this week and try for a chance at this great blog candy prize! Have a fabulous weekend. Happy Stamping!! :)
