Freshly Made Sketches......Thinking of You

Happy Thursday Peeps!!!

Yesterday I took a break from not doing much at all, because I am having some serious back pain, and made a card. Luckily, my back doesn't bother me much if I am sitting so stamping is something I can do. 

I took a peek at the sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches:

I love this sketch, it is always nice to have a wide open space to work with, the possibilities are endless.

I had recently borrowed this Stampin Up set called Picture Perfect from a friend.  I love these pretty roses in the set and I thought it would be perfect for this sketch.
I used a peice of water color paper to start with. I did a wash of color using Marina Mist ink.
I laid this piece aside to dry while stamping the flowers and leaves.

I used three colors on the roses, Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo.
I used Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake for the leaves.

I laid down some jute twine and used a glue dot to hold in place. I added the flower and leaves with dimensionals. The DSP on the side is from the Go Wild paper pack. 
The sentiment is from the Wetlands stamp set.
I added a few iridescent sequins and more twine around the piece where the two papers come together and tied a bow.

I need to share another baby pic:

I don't think I mentioned in my last post her name
Audrey Lucille.
She is named after both of her great grandmothers. 

Thanks for stopping by today!
