Viva La Verve Jul05 sketch with a twist

Here's my take on the VLVJul05 sketch challenge with a twist found here. The twist this week is to add texture. I added texture by embossing and piercing, as well as adding pearls and flowers. I started with a card base of blush blossom and stamped it with the stitched background stamp in Cameo Coral. The punched border was done with a MS doily punch in Ruby Red. I finally got a good photo for a change, dashing out last evening before the storms struck to quickly get this shot.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by and spending a little time with me:)

Yummy! I love these pretty colors! Hey we are off to a picnic today and we'll be stopping at my SIL's so I'll wave to you as we scoot by! Shoot, I should have planned it better, huh? Oh well, DH will be along--we'll do it when he's NOT along! :D
