{SSSC 117} Tickled Pink!

Happy Sunday!   I hope you're all enjoying your weekend and finding a little creative time for yourself!  

Today's card was created using the Sweet Sketch Sunday layout by Karen Giron.  Isn't it great?!  Always is! 

Love that little branch of leaves across the bottom, but I wasn't able to work that in on this card.  Maybe next time!   It's fun to make different size cards and this one is a 6-1/2" square of pink passion folded in half to make it 3-1/4" wide x 6-1/2" tall.  I've layered it with embossed pixie pink cardstock and a scrap of coordinating designer paper.  The lilac is a 2-step stamp set - Blossoms Abound - by Stampin' Up!  The little sentiment is from Very Punny, another Stampin' Up! set.  My embellisment was created using the 5 petal flower punch, an ivory crocheted flower and a button and linen thread to tie it all together! 

What is the weather like in your corner of the world?  I hope you are avoiding all the rain and flooding!  We've had the strangest weather in Nebraska this week!   We've gone from spring to summer and back to winter!  Now the SUN is shining and I'm hoping it's going to hit 60 this afternoon.  Hubby trimmed the trees a few days ago and the limbs are still waiting to be gathered up and disposed of! 

Thanks so much for blogging by and do come back again soon!
Happy Stamping!

gorgeous!!! Your cards with the crocheted flowers are just so beautiful! We finally got some sun today, but not 60 here. Good grief had to turn the heat on again it was so cold the past few days.

Fabulous use of Karen's sketch. Love that lilac image and that EF.

We have had the coldest spring in 75 years here, and I'm sure the rain fall record isn't far behind - ugh!

Beautiful! This is simply gorgeous. Love the colors and how you replicated the sketch with your personal style.

Still in love with your little Lilly! What a cutie. We miss our doxie, Missy, so much. She was a real sweetheart. But now, our Daisy and Angel keep us busy and smiling!
