Thank You

For the Skipping Stones Blog hop go here, or scroll down!

Hi there!  It's that time of the month, Cardabilites has a fabulous sketch for you today!  I adore this sketch!  So so fun!  I hope you will play along with us!

I chose to keep to the sketch as much as possible.

Started with a cream card base and layered it with some Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon.  Punched my squares and distressed it with some paint.  Added some stitching with a white gel pen.

Using my Beautiful Blooms dies and Polka Dot Basics II I made a dimensional bloom set on top of a big twine bow, and added a Summer Sunrise button.

Lastly, I stamped my sentiment from the Mat Stack collection. 

Thank you so much for sticking with me today!  I hope you have a good one friend!
