New Card New Challenges

Good Morning!! Ok so this is my second post for the day!! This card is for several different challenges. The first one being The Sweet Shop : Sketch Challenge Blog. This time was different because they are celebrating their 3rd birthday so we couold chose any of their sketches to follow. I chose to use the following sketch:

Here Is What I Came Up With:

What I Used:
Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps : January Carnations (carnations)
                                        Bethany's Birthday Wish (Happy Birthday)
Memento Ink:Tuxedo Black
Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils
Martha Stewart Border Punch: Doily Lace
Sizzix Die: Circles 2
Flower from Jessie (Sugarlips) former Design Team Sister

I love how this card turned out. I had to actually look up carnations in google to see what they look like so that I could color them in right. Perfect card for a mom or sister's birthday.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

Love to Crop : "Say What, Say Anything" Challenge

Pile It On : All About "s" (Sketch, Sizzix, Stamps, Scallops)

Totally Paper Crafts : Challenge 111:Bingo (Flowers, Lace, Pink)
