Sketch Frenzy Friday 021012

Happy Friday all! Wow, I had one of "those weeks" where I didn't touch the stamps at all! Yikes!! Not cool! and that will be a problem very soon as I have Club this weekend!! Actually, it's early yet for that!! Sunday afternoon is a long time away :)

Anyway, as you know Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch and mini hop. Sketch this week by me!! Here is the card

Based on this sketch:

This sketch is based on a card I did last fall for my Open House using the Baby Wipe technique. So, of course I was inspired to do that again but using the fun new Mixed Bunch set. I looked for some Springy colors, something bright and cheery. It's finally decided to be Winter here in Nebraska and I'm NOT liking that! We had about a foot of snow last weekend-YUCK!! Anyway, my fun colors are Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze and So Saffron. I used reinker on a Baby Wipe and made a blended stamp pad with all three colors. I inked the ornate flower using that ink pad and stamped the background. The card base is Poppy Parade with a Baja Breeze accent layer. The edge of the background layer was sponged with So Saffron. The saying is from Curly Cute. I sponged the edge of that layer also with So Saffron and layered onto So Saffron that had the edges punched with the Scallop Trim Border punch.
