TECC17 Floral Whimsy

I had a late start today....we had the bi-monthly
Exterminator visit, my two oldest wanted to get a new hair due and the bill's were ready to be paid...

So - all in all I had no stamping time this morning and early afternoon....but thankfully things calmed down and I had the chance to escape to my craft area.

Since I wasn't to crazy about the SCS Sketch Challenge today..... I thought I would browse around really quick to see what Taylor VanBruggen has come up with....and to my pleasant surprise I have found her TECC17 Sketch - Wahoooo - I knew I wanted to try it!!!

This is the card I have created with it . I have used my newly won *Floral Whimsy* Set with it and I'm so loving this Set - have I mentioned this before - LOL???

My color choices were Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose,Close to Cocoa , Purely Pomegranate, Old Olive and Whisper White. Aren't the colors beautiful together???

I have started out stamping the vase image first with Close to Cocoa. Then I have stamped the
flowers with the Purely Pomegranate Stampin Spot and Regal Rose Marker. The stems were colored with the Old Olive Marker. Next I have trimmed the stamped image to were it would fit into the long rectangle scalloped Nestie. The Nestie was cut with the Close to Cocoa CS and then raised with Stampin Dimensional.

To make the Sketch a little more elegant I have added the Ribbon (Michael's) and the small Halfback Pearls.

Hope you like the card and the Sketch I have chosen??? ~TFL~
OOPS - after I have posted the card I realized I should have added the sentiment underneath the image, but I have placed it on the side......see this is what happens when you're getting older - LOL!!!

Awesome!! Love those pearls and the colors.

...I promise to not report you to the challenge police about that sentiment business... 'cuz I've had lots of those OOPS moments myself.

I could write "I LOVE THIS!!" on every single post you've got on your blog! Since I don't have all night and tomorrow to do that ;) I just wanted to say that I am so glad I found it, and I'm adding your blog to my reader and to my blog roll. I've been admiring your stuff on SCS for a while and FINALLY clicked on your link...I know, a little slow! Take care, and can't wait to see more!
