The Sweet Stop


Every Saturday hop on over to the Sweet Stop for a sketch and inspiration! I joined in this week and just had to use this beautiful digi stamp, Forget Me Not availible here. Not only is it a beautiful image when you purchase it a portion of the cost goes toward fighting a devastating disease, Alzheimer's.

I printed the digi stamp out twice so I could have one image to cut out the 3 flowers I selected to be popped up for more dimension. The image was colored using Prismacolor pencils and blending with my colorless blender pencil. I did find that the printer ink tended to smear more using baby oil but my Prisma colorless blender worked really well.

The aqua patterned paper is from PTI and the stip of that yummy pink is from BG, Sultry pad. I used a MS border punch, embossed one of them, added some gems and pearls and a few Quick Kuts flourishes and a tiny EK Success photo corner.

I hope you'll come join us! Sketches are always so much fun. Thanks for stopping by and as always your comments make me smile:) Be blessed.

Hi Leah, I'm one of the new Jr Design Team members, too. I'm finally getting around to "meeting" my new DT friends. What a lovely blog you have! Your card for the sketch challenge is so pretty. That's one of my favorite digital images. I love the way you popped up some of the flowers. The pearls are a nice touch, too.

Hugs,
Lisa
