Welcome to Sweet Sketch Wednesday ....



Welcome to another Wednesday at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and one fabulous sketch for you to play with...

and a great sponsor this week with Sally Ann and her gorgeous designs from
Digi Stamp Boutique who is giving away to our Grand Prize winner 6 of her stamps.

For my card this week, I used Stampin' Up cherry cobbler card stock along with some retired design paper by them also. My image is the lovely Ava with Flowers, and I love it. I colored her using prismas and oms and then added glitter to the flowers.  I created the flowers using my new Spellbinders Carnation Collection, punching my centers with a 1/4 inch punch. The ribbon is also retired from SU. I am really happy with how this turned out and  this is one of my favorite sentiments, I have lots of friends that I could send this to.

Be sure and check out the gorgeous eye candy from the rest of the team this week and you can see a little about the area of Virginia that I am from, as it was my turn to do the post for SSW this week.
Happy day everyone!!

Love your card, Patti! What a sweet image! I so wish I could have joined you all on Saturday! I was just too overwhelmed with the task of getting everything ready for the movers on Monday. It is sheer chaos here, but I am hoping that it won't take me too long to get settled on the other end.
