A Mother's weekend sketch color challenge

There was one more stamp set that I hadn't had a chance to play with from the latest release from H&M Stamps...but trust me, I've been itching! So I got up this morning (more like mid-morning), prepared lunch for the family, and then holed myself up in my stamp room and stamped. I was even still in my PJs....SCOOOOORE!!! hah! So I inked up Debbie Corbari's gorgeous flower set called Petals of Friendship. I also wanted to knock out a couple of challenges. One is the weekend sketch challenge seen here and the other is the Color Throwdown seen here.


Don't let this card trick you, it is actually GINORMOUS!! I cut a piece of cardstock 8 1/2 x 8 1/2" and then folded in half. I don't think they make envelopes this big, LOL! Oh well, it's just going to have to get mailed with a package then, right? :) So the flower is pretty glittery and, of course, the picture just can't capture it! I put dazzling diamonds on the outer white edges and a Prima rhinestone sticker thingy in the middle. I also tried accentuating the fine swirls by running a Clear Sakura glaze pen over them. You might be able to see it better if you click on the following picture. :)


Supplies
Stamps: Petals of Friendship by H&M Stamps
Ink: Pixie Pink, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Pixie Pink, Sweet Always dsp
Accessories: Martha Stewart edge punch, tool kit, dazzling diamonds, 1 1/4" circle punch, scallop circle from Birds & Blooms die, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, Clear Sakura glaze pen, rhinestones, Prima rhinestones, Pumpkin pie grosgrain, Regal Rose grosgrain


Hope you are having a great weekend!!
