Beate Weekend Sketch #57

I can't believe it's Friday again already, can you? This week just flew by! Ready for another Weekend Sketch Challenge? I used one of the new Verve sets for this card, Abundant Blessings. The colors were inspired from some new confetti flowers I picked up at Michael's yesterday (I LOVE THEM). . .the orange flowers are exactly a Tangerine Tango and the green flowers are a little darker than the Kiwi Kiss, but they would work together nicely. I couldn't fit the flowers on this card, though, because they just didn't look right with these round flowers from the set. I'm sure you'll see them soon, though! :)



Be sure and see what gorgeous cards Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have created for today's sketch. I can't wait to see! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Abundant Blessings (Verve Stamps); Paper- Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black(SU), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko), Tangerine Tango, Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss (SU); Accessories- Stardust Stickles, paper piercer, black marker, black organdy ribbon (Darice), Copic markers; Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
