Sketch Girl #12 - Fun with Flowers

I saw this sketch and was like "Huh." I had no inspiration. Nada. none. I pouted. No inspiration. So I pushed it to the back of my mind and did other work related things. But I doodled constantly. And finally after turning the sketch I came up with this:


Me likely.
I was so happy with how this card came out. The flowers were from a stamp set that I got for free from Archivers. The sentiment is from PaperMakeup stamps. I used the cross stich selection on my sewing machine to sew up the sides. Colored the flowers with my copics and then added some glitter from my Spica glitter pen. I also used pop dots of different heights to give the card some dimension.

What do you all think?
Go and post your creation on the sketch girl blog!
And head on over to the other sketch girl's blogs for more inspiration!
