Sweet Sunday.....Thinking of You

Happy Sunday peeps!!
 Time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge

Love this sweet sketch Karen has for us this week:

I had been looking at this sketch and thinking about it all week trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it. I finally thought I would just put a sentiment on the main panel and make some little punched flowers for the three elements on the side.
I went digging through my sets to find a sentiment to use, I think I may need to order a few more sentiment sets.....:)
I went with this one from the Stampin Up Thoughts and Prayers, just masked off the part I didn't want to use and stamped with black stazon onto whisper white card stock. I then pierced a heart shape around it using the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack. 

I made the coral flowers using the Boho Punch and added a basic pearl to the center of each.. 
The base of the card is Pool Party card stock and then the next layer is Calypso Coral. The DSP on here is from the International Bazaar 
The three strip flags are coral embossed with the square lattic EF, a strip of DSP from the International Bazaar pack and a strip of whisper white embossed with one of the Delicate Designs EF.
I finished it off with three pearls in the top corner.

Be sure and check out what the rest of the team has made with this sweet sketch:
