Sweet Sunday....Miss You Already

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is Sweet Sunday Sketch Day 

Here is the sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I started  my card with a base of Crumb Cake card stock. I stamped randomly with a few images from the retired French Foliage stamp set using crumb cake ink.
I sponged the edges as well with crumb cake.
I layered a strip of DSP across the middle that is from the Gingham Garden pack and matted with Strawberry Slush cardstock.

The main panel is a piece of Frist Edition DSP that I painted with a some watered down white craft paint. 
I curled and roughed up the edges a bit while the paper was still damp.
I sat it aside to dry and stamped my flowers from the Stippled Blossom stamp set. I used Strawberry Slush and Old Olive ink, stamping of once for the bottom layer and full strength for the top.

I added the flowers to the main panel with some dimensionals and then layered it onto the card base with more dimensionasl. The sentiment is from the retired Really Retro stamp set. I finished it off with some basic pearls.

Now let's see what the rest of the girls did with this fun little sketch:
