Floral Trio Frame

Good morning and welcome to my blog.  Thanks for all your lovely comments and questions I've had this week and welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.

Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards lovely work everyone.

This week we have another great sketch my our very own Sally Dude.

Sketch # 66 

This week I've used Floral Trio Frame by Bugaboo Stamps I just love this image you could do so much with it, use it as a block trio frame or do a little cut, pasting and enlarging and use them as individual images.

Here a pick preview of the inside of my card.

I've taken individual photo's of each of the images so that you can see what you could do with each of the images on individual cards.

These images were coloured with Copics and I used a silver gel pen.

Because the image is a Tulip, it could be coloured in a variety of colours as well as two tone colours.

This week our sponsor is
Bugaboo Stamps

Everything that you ever wanted to know about Bugaboo Stamps:  As if raising 5 children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the work of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. Bugaboo Stamps has become one of the leading companies in digital images. From seiously snarky to sugar sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects.  Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!!  If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps at Totally Stampilicious.  And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for the weekly Challenges at Catch the Bug.

Kathie, love the bright colors of your card. I hope that it stopped raining for you. My kids are both starting school and we are getting back into a routine. Before my son left for college he went and got two rather large tattoos now that he is in the military I'm not as surprised.

Hello Kathie, You know I always love the detail on your cards! This one is no exception! Love the silver gel pen. Your tulips are so beautiful. I am a lover of purple so this was really eye catching to me along with the DP you used. I am so taken by the sayings! Beautifully created! All is well here. Been busy with family visitors and vacationing! So sad to see our summer fading away! I should move your way as I always love Spring and Summer! Hope all is well with you!
Hugs, Judi
