FS119 meets Banana Split Sketch Challenge!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

I was pleasantly surprised that the FS119 was posted early - wahoooo!!! I was even more pleased that Joan Ervin is the featured Stamper today - she is a fabulous Artist and I love her creations!!!

If you haven't met her yet, please take the time to check out her gallery!!! She is so deserving to have this day in the *spotlight* !!!

I chose this super cute card of hers and combined it with the 2RedBananas - Banana Split Challenge!!!

Here is what I've changed - the colors, less DP, the Stamp Set and the layout. I added some Prisma flowers at the end!!!

The Set I used was designed by Jami Bova for 2RedBananas. It's called Flourish with Flowers and it's actually a *Sneek Peek*!!! Remember all Set's will be released tomorrow - make sure to swing by the 2Redbananas Store!!!

I know my main image is not oval according to the Sketch......., unfortunately the largest Oval Nestie barely fit around it - so I ended up using the rectangle - like Joan's!!! Learned a lesson - I should have cut the Oval first....not do it backwards..LOL!!!

Anyway - I kept the square card theme. This card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2".

I inked the image in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic & Prisma Markers - E00,V01,V15, PM25 and PM125.

The DP is from PTI. I punched each side with the MS Punch. The wings were bedazzled with some Candle Light Shimmerz. The Ribbon is also from Martha Stewart.

I decorated the rest of the card with some Prisma flowers that my sweet BFF - Denise Marzec has given to me :)!!!! Thanks GF - they look great and I'm glad I can finally use them again :)!!!

Make sure to swing by Cassie, Deb, Jeanette , Denise, Teresa, Wendy and Jami to see what they have created this week with all the Sneak Peeks.

Have a wonderful day with you families and friends!!! ~TFL~
