Happy Saturday. I hope you are having a nice holiday weekend where you are. We were planning on putting the pool up this weekend but it is not warm enough. It is only in the 60's here. This has been one of the worst Mays weather wise I can remember. We have not even been able to plant our garden yet. Hopefully next weekend it will finally start to warm up so we can get those things done and it will feel more like summer.
Today I wanted to share another card using this months Sketch For You To Try.
You still have a few days left to play along for a chance to win some great stamps, so head over to Jen's blog to link up your card when it is done.
I am also entering this card in this weeks Wee Memories Challenge which is to use something from Etsy or Pintrest as your inspiration.
As most of you know I already love Etsy but I recently became a member of Pintrest and love it there now too! It is such a happy place! I especially like having a place to put all my inspiration and seeing what inspires others too. This is the inspiration photo I chose to use for this challenge
This is what I came up with.
I started by using the PTI Polka Dot Basics Stamps set to make the turquoise and white patterned paper. Next I stamped the stem image from Melissa Bickfords new Cherry stamp set then paper pieced the leaves and added some felt die cuts that I stitched with white embroidery floss. After that I added a circle border using different size circles then I stamped the matching sentiment in the smaller circle. Pure Poppy Bitty Dots Patterned Paper and some machine stitching finishes it off.
That's it for now I hope you have a great Memorial Day and I will be back soon with more to share.
