Good Morning!  Today over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges it's a sketch challenge and our twist is to use pearls on our card!  I hope you'll help pass the word about this week's challenge.  I love sketch challenges and as soon as I saw this sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to make. 

I used a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Garden Silhouettes!  This is one of my very favorite retired stamp sets!  I love to color this flower stamp using my SU markers and that's exactly how I made this card.  I inked up my stamps using my SU markers and then I stamped it onto my card stock.  I repeated this process three times, once in each corner and again on my main image panel.

I added a few basic pearls in the centers of the flowers and then I stamped my sentiment.  I decided to dry emboss the pretty in pink layer in the middle of my card.  I used my final press embossing folder- I sometimes do this just to give that little extra something to my cards and I'll left that border a little bigger around the edges. 

Below is a picture of the sketch for this week's challenge. 
Well, that's about it for today!  I wanted to take a moment to let you all know that I will be busy getting ready for my yard sale this weekend.  I'm not sure how much I'll be able to update this week, but for sure I'll be back as soon as I can.  I just wanted to let you all know what I'm up to in case I can't get some stamping time.  Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
