My Turn for the Sketch

Today I took a turn and posted the weekly sketch for the LAD weekly sketch challenge. Yes, I was am a little out of my comfort zone--but I am happy to report that I did it--all by myself! So, here is the sketch for the week.
And here is my card that I made using the sketch. It was a super quick one and could be a great layout to fall back to!

My card started with a pink passion base. I printed some of the polka-dot digital papers to use for the background paper. This new release was the first time I've tried digital paper-and it's VERY fun! I put a layer of polka-dot paper down on my card first, then gave added the chocolate chip strip at the bottom and tangerine tango strip at the top. I ran some chocolate chip cardstock through my eyelet border that new toy...and added it to my card.

I stamped my flower image, which is from the Garden Inspirations stamp set that was just released, in tangerine tango ink on whisper white cardstock. I layered my flower on tangerine tango paper and attached it to my card.

My "thank you" sentiment is from the Everyday Sayings stamp set, also a new release. I stamped "thank you" with chocolate chip ink onto whisper white cardstock and punched it out using my small oval punch. I layered it on a tangerine large oval and then on a chocoalte chip scallop oval. I added it to my card with dimensionals.

I hope that you have a chance to play along with the design team and try this sketch! Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great one!
