Flowers for You -- Sweet Sketch 8

This card was created for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is Sweet Sketch 8. When I found this Dollar stamp I knew that it would go well with the Far East Stack. I have been eyeing the MS Zig Zag for the past 6 months but didn't fall in love with it until I saw Sheri, a Design Team Member of Sweet Sketch Wednesday, use it on one of her cards. I thought the sharp zig zag would minmick the fans. I picked up two packages of buttons on a 50 cent clearance. One package just happened to have the right color for this card!

Arlana has such a great Design Team for Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Even though I am a DT member...Wednesday morning is always a special treat for me. It feels like Christmas or a birthday celebration...I love seeing the new cards unveiled each Wednesday morning. Then it's like having a week long extended birthday each time I visit the blogs of those who are participating for the week.

  1. I sure love your card. What a sweet stamp set. You really did a great job on the sketch. I was going to get this stamp set and didn't think it would turn out cute. Well, how wrong I was!!! It is adorable!!! I especially love the know me.

  2. Wonderful card Judi!! I just love the color and all the texture. The zig zag punch was a perfect touch. I better warn you, I have a bazillion border punches as I love that added touch...hee hee!! Great job!

  3. Lovely card Judi! The colors are so soft and pretty! Great detail! Sweet!

  4. Great job!! That goes just perfect together!!

  5. Beautiful card! I'm very happy to be included with a great DT!!

    Peace and Luv,

  6. Oh Judi I just love how all this just fits together. You did such a sweet job and the colors are just perfect.

  7. Hi Judi!! I wanted to get back to you about your questions on nesties. I find that I tend to grab for my classic shapes the most. My favorites are Circles & Rectangles. I would start with a shape that you tend to use and would get the complete set so you have all the nesting options. HTH

  8. This is a beautiful card! I love the oriental theme! I also love your blog. It's so bright and cheerful. I'm becoming a follower. Your cards are "my style!" :)
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  9. This is marvelous Judi! Love the colors, the oriental theme, the border punch, button, and of course the layout! :)
