TESC122 - Be like a Flower

Happy Friday everyone! This week has just flown past, don't ya think?? And the countdown is on until the day I leave for CHA! Speaking of...I will be at the Taylored Expressions booth and I would love to meet you if you are there! I've never actually met anyone through my blog before (I've heard it can be done) LOL! Anyway, would be neato to meet some of the few people that actually read my blog...I know I'm looking forward to meeting the people whose blogs I follow!

Anyway, here is your AWESOME sketch for the week (you can definitely squeeze this in before you leave for CHA) :) If you aren't going to CHA... then surely you have time to play along! :)

And here is what I came up with.

For once, I didn't stray far from the sketch. And I actually REALLY like this card in person...just not how it photographed...such a bummer! Just take my's a GREAT card in person, lol!

I used a combination of the Summertime Project Pantry kit and the Easter Key Ingredients from a while ago. The stamps are all from the gorgeous, Summer Afternoon. I stamped my main image in some new chalk ink from Colorbox called Wisteria. I am LOVING how these chalk inks look. The color is so very rich and the stamp gets nice and complete coverage. I need to invest in MORE of these!

I *may* have one last project to post before I leave...we shall see! In the mean time, let's check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has to share with you, hmm?? :)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend and thanks sooo much for your visit. :)

Gorgeous card Melissa. Love the colors and that flower! Nice mebellishments (ribbon, lace... rhinestone...), and great stitching job. :o)

Your card is beautiful Melissa and you and are were on similar wavelengths - except I posted my card similar to this yesterday - it didn't end up following the sketch although I had it kind of in mind. Have a blast at CHA!!! So sorry I won't be one of the blog readers coming to meet you.
