WMSC86 and Flowers


I managed a card this week for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #86. Here's the sketch:


I recently bought some Cheery Lynn dies (Cuties 3) at my LSS (Stampers!) that are designed to make flowers. Who would imagine a die that looks like this:
would create flowers that look like these?


Not bad for my first go! I added some Martha Stewart punched ferns and some clear glitter. My focal point is the large Labels No. 14 frame stamp embossed in aqua on polka dot paper, with the Say it Loud sentiment within. I ran a waterbrush over the "like you mean it" to diffuse the ink a bit.



The background was created with the Off Beat Backgrounds set. Here's the whole shebang. Thanks for stopping by!
