New Sketch for the Week!

My Mom called and asked me if I had any birthday cards "in stock". Luckily for her, I was working on this week's challenge and decided to turn it into a birthday card for her friend. I quickly switched colors. I was going for a brighter look- but my Mom is a muted, natural color lover! I put together the flowers out of a bunch of Primas that I had and then threw in some fabric ones. I really hope that her friend loves it. She's one of Mom's oldest friends from childhood, so I wanted it to be really special! Hope you enjoy it!!

This week's sketch-

And my take on it!

I really love flowers so I ended up following the sketch pretty closely this week! If you want to see the rest of the design teams work be sure and stop by and try this sketch out for yourself!! We'd love for you to link up with us!! And you might get one of those pretty badges like I have for the top three!

A challenge and an anniversary

Our anniversary is coming up on Friday, so I needed to be thinking about a card. I decided to use this week's sketch and kill 2 birds with one stone. Usually I'm the one that's waiting until the last minute to make a card for a special occasion. Not this time! I'm ahead of the game! Here's the sketch for the week-

And then here's the card that I made with it-

I love retro stuff and fell in love with this couple from the Silhouette store. I used some crystal Stickles to give the letters a little pop.
If you haven't already checked out this week's design team entries and the sketch for the week, be sure to go to and check it out! We would love to have you play along with us!
