IA112 Inspiration in Action Weekend Sketch Challenge

I stumbled upon Gretchen Barron's blog recently and decided to give her latest weekend sketch a try. The sketch was a fun one, so I pulled out my Cottage Wall DP, along with some Razzleberry, Olive, and Orchid cardstock. I stamped the Sincere Salutations birthday greeting in Razzleberry on white and edged the panel with an olive marker. I layered that on Orchid and added a piece of Razzleberry ribbon with some hemp tied into a bow. I stamped the larger punched flower with PTI's text in Versamark and embossed it with white powder. The very tiny flower underneath the brad was cut with a Quickutz die. The 2 smaller flowers were punched with a 3 flower punch and popped up on foam squares. The ferns were punched with a MS punch from Olive cardstock. I added a few Kaiser lavender pearls for accents on the flowers and sentiment panel.
Check out Gretchen's link above to win some goodies from the brand new occasions mini catalog just by playing along with this sketch challenge! You'll also find lots of inspiration for your card-making and crafting projects there too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday! I'm off to the kitchen to start baking.
