CCM Saturday Blog Hop - Getting Sketchy

Today's Create With Connie & Mary Saturday Hop theme is to choose a sketch, and then show it and the card we made with it! I love using sketches; they're like a roadmap to a completed card. Just choose the colors, image, and DSP (if any) and boom, a finished project!

This is the sketch I used:

Of course, when following a sketch, you don't have to use the exact shapes. You can even change the orientation from portrait to landscape if you want. It's more of a starting point and "use your imagination" layout.

Today I'm using the newly released Online Exclusives Simply Zinnia bundle. I simply love zinnias, so you're probably going to get tired of seeing them here, lol! The circles were cut using Everyday Details dies. Then the flower was stamped in Melon Mambo ink and colored with Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight Blends.

Leaves were stamped with Mossy Meadow on Old Olive cardstock and die cut, along with the Old Olive stem. I wanted this to be a birthday card, and neither Simply Zinnia or Everyday Details had a birthday greeting, so I swiped one from Cheerful Daisies. I'm sure the daisies didn't mind. 😉

That's all for today - see you next Saturday! Up next is Libby Fens at Libby Stamps. Or click the "back" button to go back to Lori at Loritamarie Crafts.
