Freshly Made sketches.....happy birthday

Hello Peeps!!

So sorry for being so quiet her on the ol' blog, life is busy and I am having a hard time finding time to stamp. thankfully I have a few days off work so I squeezed out a bit of stamping time this evening.

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

and knew right away I wanted to play along.

I went simple but I like the end result.
 I pulled out the hardwood BG stamp and stamped some Crumb Cake cardstock along with a bit of Peekaboo Peach and Wild Wasabi. I used the same color of ink for each color of card stock.

I then cut out my flowers and leaves using the Botanical Builder framelits. 
I like the added texture the stamping gave to them.
The flower was layered up using a bit of dimensionals between layers.

I glued the Peach flower to the Crumb Cake BG piece 
and then tucked the leaves in and around the flower. 
I added a pearl to the center of the flower and a few tiny pearls around the floral arrangement.

The sentiment is from the bonus stamp set in the April Paper Pumpkin. I love it!

The base is a piece of the Thick Whisper White card stock.

I had an email asking for a new Baby Audrey pic so here she is:

Such a sweetheart she is!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Oh, Vicki, I love how you've used this new die set that I have (and not yet used -- for shame!)! It's gorgeous, and I think adding the dimensionals under is a great idea. And I love the small pearls for accents. Beautiful sketch card, especially with the woodgrain. And, ooh, your sweet Audrie is so adorable, and I love the little baseball onesie! Hehe! Guess she's going to love baseball when she gets bigger. So glad you've shared a new photo of her! Hugs, sweet friend, and have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
