Beate Weekend Sketch #50

Beate's Weekend Sketch this week was a tough one for me. . .or maybe it was just a tough week! LOL I'm sure you all have those times when it doesn't matter what you create, you just don't like it. I just got this hostess set, Sweet Dreams, so I wanted to use it for this sketch. I LOVE the scalloped frame that comes in the set. After I stamped the scalloped frame in Soft Sky, I inked up the flower stamp in Blue Bayou and then went over the stems with an Old Olive marker and stamped it inside the frame. I added a few gemstones to the flower centers for some bling. I can't wait to see what beautiful creations Beate, Cambria, Laurie, Lori, MaryJo and Sharon have to share. I am always amazed at what they create! Hope you have a wonderful Friday! Thanks for stopping in! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Sweet Dreams (SU); Paper- Blue Bayou, Soft Sky DS, Whisper White (SU), olive (DCWV); Ink- Onyx Black (Versafine), Blue Bayou, Soft Sky (SU); Accessories-Water Dew Drops (The Robin's Nest), gemstones (Hero Arts), paper piercer, Old Olive marker (SU), double stitched ribbon in Blue Bayou (SU), white gel pen

Lately I feel like that all the time. I think it's the weather. It's gorgeous and I just want to be outside reading a book. It's hard for me to stamp when it's beautiful outside.

Your card looks wonderful though. I love the splash of green you added, your paper piercing, all the colors and the dew drops in the corners.

Have a great weekend. Hugs and smiles
