Sketch Frenzy Friday 040811

Happy Friday all! I'm excited for the weekend! I had a major commitment get cancelled, so I have Saturday free! I see yard work in my future!! Things are coming to life and need to get my landscape cleaned up!!

As you know, Friday means another sketch to try over at Sketch Frenzy Friday! I'm obviously in the mood for flowers! Here is my card

based on this sketch by Melinda Couden.

My card base is Poppy Parade with a background layer of Poppy Parade DSP. For the strips on the sketch, I added some Daffodil Delight DSP. Both prints are from the Sunny Garden pack. Next I grabbed a piece of Watercolor paper and stamped the flowers and butterfly from Every Moment in Black Stazon. I colored with my markers in Daffodil Delight, Poppy Parade and Old Olive. I don't usually use markers because they are so bright, but in this case I love it! I think the watercolor paper makes a difference too. I do see my "lines" like I do on card stock. The watercolor paper is layered on Daffodil Delight. My final accents are two more butterflies punched with the 3/4" punch, layered onto 1" Poppy Parade circles and attached with dimensionals on the top and bottom strip. The center strip has a Daffodil Delight button. I almost didn't add a saying at all, but then saw this little "for you" sitting by by desk from the All Holidays set and it seemed the perfect fit.
