Hello Peeps!!

Popping in here quickly to share a card I made using the sketch this week on the Freshly Made Sketches Blog.

Here is the fabulous sketch:

I love this single stamp from Stampin Up called "Blessed Easter", the tulips are so fun to color. I masked off the sentiment and then stamped the tulips three times, once being on scrap paper and colored with real red, daffodil delight and tangerine tango and I used garden green for the stems and leaves.

The DSP I paired my image with is the new Retro Fresh pack, I love the colors in this pack, it may be my favorite from the Occasions Mini.
The base of the card is Baked Brown Sugar card stock and then a layer of  tangerine tango and then the DSP. I made my center banner piece with tangerine and more DSP. I hand cut my banner as I haven't gotten the new dies yet, but they are on the way.
The image is cut with a circle die and then matted with a circle of Baked Brown Sugar card stock that I distressed up a bit.
The sentiment is from the "Happy Watercolor" stamp set and is so fun, it is like it is saying there is a secret over here, look inside! Maybe there is........will have to see about that!

Hope you like it, thanks for stopping by!!
