Sketch 150 with Digi Stamp Boutique


My first Mother's Day card for this year....and what a fabulous set of stamps from Digi Stamp Boutique to create with, don't you just love this image and sentiment from their new set, "Mother's Day" which includes the vase of flowers and 6 sentiments....such a value. They are our sponsor for this week's challenge using this fantastic sketch from Arlana. Thanks so much Sally Ann!



The Grand Prize winner will receive 6 of Sally Ann's beautiful images and a badge from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and please don't forget to leave a comment at SSW to be eligible.

For my card this week, I created a standard A2 card and I know you are saying where is my square card?--well, I needed one in just this size for someone and as you can see the sketch works wonderfully .

I colored using a copics, Stampin' Up baja breeze, blue bayou and distress inks. I have been hanging on to this beautiful pleated ribbon for a while and decided this was the special card to cut it for....do you do that? buy something and then hate to use it?


I hope to see you join us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week.
Wishing you all a happy day!

I am also entering my card into the following challenges. Be sure and check out these great challenge blogs.
