Bloggers Challenge ~ Sketch challenge

This week our list mom, Lisa Somerville came up with a most BEAUTIFUL sketch challenge for the bloggers challenge group.

As you all know, I {heart} sketch challenges and THIS one is no different. In fact, I can see myself using this over and over again!

I used the big shot on the polka dot embossed layer. I used the scallop circle punch, and cut the "friend" stamp tight to the image with scissors. I added a touch of sparkle in the center of the flowers.. Although I could make the whole thing extra sparkly, sometimes, less IS more.

I can't wait to see what my friends are doing for bloggers challenge this week. Great Sketch Lisa!!
