"Enjoy Your Day" - SC Sketch Challenge

This card was made with the SC212 sketch. The fun stamp I've used on this card is from High Hopes and is called - "Party Girl Florence" The sentiment circle is from SU

The Flamingo is colored with prismacolor pencils (oms) and twinking h20's.I've used versamark and embossed the balloons with iridescent ice for sparkle.

The sentiment is embossed with winter white embossing pdr and is popped up along with the balloons for a bit of dimension.

The top accent is just a few pieces of ribbon and beads tied under the button.....I derived this idea from the fabulous ribbon blossom created by Pam Bassett who recently had a fabulous tutorial on SC right here - Ribbon Blossom

Paper: GP white, bazill, basic grey sugared Ink: versafine black, bashful blue, old olive Accessories: dew drops, button, bling, ribbon. iridescent ice, versamark, stitching, stardust pens, labels one die, CB swiss dot folder

Be sure to check out the High Hopes Challenge Blog#15...this week the fun challenge is brought to us by the very talented Janette and is to use hearts on your card. This week's random winner will receive Matchmakin' Maynard and the Light My Fire sentiment!!

Have a Great Day Everyone!! and Thank You for your Wonderful Comments!!
