I'm just now getting a chance to upload my card for last week's splitcoast sketch challenge.  My photo below is of the sketch we were to follow.  This was such a cute sketch and I wanted to make sure to play along.  I could image all sorts of smaller stamps being used for this sketch.

I decided to use one of my new stamp sets.  The set I used is a level II hostess set called Silhouette Sentiments.  I love this set, it's so versatile and just my style.

I began by stamping the flower image using Daffodil Delight ink and then using my stamp-a-ma-jig I lined up the image so that my next stamped black image would be just off to the left side a tiny bit- to sort of give it that shadow effect.  I did this four times and then I punched out my images using my square punch.

My background is embossed using the new texture impressions embossing folder called 'Framed Tulips' found in the current mini catalog.  I love this folder and I'm using it even more than I thought I would!

The rest of my time was spent simply following the sketch and putting my card together.  One thing I did differently than I usually do it that using my eyelet border punch I decided to punch both the top and bottom part of my card stock.  I like how that turned out and I'll have to remember to do that more often.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I have a great rest of the day!  Tomorrow I'm going to use another stamp set that I just recently purchased so be sure to check back again.
