timeless treasures and another card sketch...

I'm back with the third card sketch for Skipping Stones Design this week - am having a lot of fun doing these sketches! Hope you like them too. Here is the third sketch:
And this is what I came up with. I used Skipping Stones Designs' Timeless Treasures stamp set and stamped it twice in the background with Jenni Bowlin's Chewing Gum ink pad. Then I stamped the little purple flowers with Skipping Stones Designs' Dandelion Dreams stamp set.
The little "thoughtful" mini flash card is a new item by Melissa Frances, as are the resin bird and pink flowers. The bird is lightly brushed with brown chalk, so the dimension would show a bit more. I made the flower with Melissa Frances creme crepe paper.
We'll have one more sketch next Tuesday. Stop over to Skipping Stones if you'd like to play along each week! Oh, and I need to choose a winner for last Tuesday's HEARTSONG stamp giveaway!

Oh, this is beautiful!!! Just lovely! I got those pretty Kaiser flowers in my DT kit for last month. They’re so pretty and sweet! At 1st I didn’t know what the heck to do with them, but quickly figured something out (on a scrapbooking LO). I love you’re sketch too, I think I’ll have to give that a try! Thanks ;).
