So Sweet of You

I mentioned last week that I'm trying to do more sketch challenges, so here's another one. This one is from 2 Sketches 4 You, where my fabulous blog friend Regina (AKA the Stampin' Bean) is a design team member.

Here are the DEEtails:

This cute little flower was actually a "discard" that I had on my desk from an experiment a while back. It's layers of Pretty in Pink card stock, punched with my Scallop Circle, crumpled up and peeled apart. This makes the layers a little more delicate and fluffy. The center is a button from my stash, tied up with some Hemp Twine. I adhered my flower onto a Martha Stewart doily. Then I grabbed some fun, Raspberry Tart DSP, which I layered over a Rose Red Scallop Edge border. I added some Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon, which I pleated, and then stamped my PTI Signature Greetings sentiment in Basic Black.

Hope you had a great holiday! If you took any great photos during the weekend, I hope you'll participate in my Inspire DEE Challenge! Check out the DEEtails here!
