SSS216...My Friend

It's another Saturday and we are officially into Summer. Yet, I am soooo ready for Winter. It is also time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. The sketch this week is a nice simple one. Perfect for using up some card stock scraps. Which is what I did.



I used a Whisper White card base. I stamped the poppies image from the Precious Poppies set several times along the top of the card and then layered the pattern paper pieces along the bottom. I also stamped the poppies on some white scraps and cut out the open flowers. I attached them with a small glue dot in the center so the edges of the petals are loose and slightly raised for dimension. I cut the tag out with a Silhouette cut file and stamped Friend, also from the same stamp set onto the tag. I tied it onto the ribbon with some baker's twine and attached a little safety pin.

I would love to see what you make with the sketch this week. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to get the details and to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made.

Just love this poppy card, Melissa! It looks perfect not coloured, with the extra dimension you give with the second layer of blooms. Your dp looks so sweet with the flowers and I also love your tag and pin.
