CCMC196 Sketch Challenge

This is my first attempt at a sketch challenge! I have been watching the design team at Create with Connie and Mary and have decided to throw my hat in the ring! :) They are a wonderful group of Creative stampers and I have learned so much from them already. Here is the sketch for this week:

...and here is my card for this week's challenge

The colors I chose were Baja Breeze and Very Vanilla. The flower was made using the Blossom Punch. I also saw a video made by Mercedes Weber that showed how to make a distressed flower by breaking down the cardstock and peeling it apart. I just love this technique!

Thanks so much for taking a peek!!


Supplies used:
Stamp Sets: Mixed Buinch, Thank You Kindly
Cardstock: Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, Rhinestone Brad
Tools: Blossom Punch, Polka dot Impressions Folder,Ticket Corner Punch, Lace Ribbon Border Punch
