SC52 In Full Bloom

For today's card I used Sketch Challenge 52 from Tamera's Challenge Blog: I love doing sketch challenges sometimes because it is nice to have a layout already sketched and it is easier for me to concentrate on the creative elements of the card. For this card I used the retired SU set "In Full Bloom". I used choco chip ink to stamp the flower and my aqua painters and ink to add color. Again I was surprised that the SU chocolate chip ink did not smear, especially with all of the water from my aqua painters! The cute pink papers are from Paper Trey Ink. They are very nice papers and I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more DP from PTI. Today is quite hot here in Northern Va so we will be spending a good part of the day inside. Today is also Cameron's 7 month with us, and on a much different note it also marks the 8th year since my Mother's passing. I miss, and think about her everyday. I hope all of you are having a nice, cool, weekend.

Such a pretty and cheerful card, Veronica! I love the chocolate paired with that rich pink, and that polka dot ribbon is fabulous. Great job on the water coloring!

I understand about your Mom. My Mom has been gone almost 17 years, and my Dad 16. I still miss them very much.

Happy seven months to Cameron!
