Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #220 Sponsor DigiStamp Boutique

Good morning and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday.  
That also means it's another great Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards, lovely work ladies and it was nice to see so many more entries this week.

Kathie - WOW your card is beautiful. I just love sunflowers so I love the color and the image. The gold corner makes it so elegant. It will be an exciting trip for you to go on September 20th is my daughter's 21st birthday so we will both be celebrating. (I think she will more than I will, hehe.)

Hi Kathie

I'm on my second attempt at commenting today, so here goes . . .

Gorgeous card. I love all the sunflowers.

I bet you are excited for your trip - South America is on my list of places to visit, but I fear it may be a few years before I get there.

Hope you have a great week.
