Hello Friend

I saw the Scrapping Everyday Miracles July Sketch Challenge and thought it looked so fun.  This weekend there was a challenge at Gina K Designs to use a floral stamp and a sentiment to make a card to encourage a friend.  I decided to do both challenges in one card.  I have a limited supply of GKD stamps but was able to use this fantastic dogwood flower   I love this little flower stamp - it's so fun {and easy} to color  I alternated the dogwood flowers with some of my Basic Grey papers.

Part of the sketch challenge was to use a pop dot on an embellishment. I cut out a trio of flowers from the patterned paper, colored the flowers with copics and popped them up on my tag.  I added black Want2Scrap bling to the centers of all the pink flowers.

The background panel was embossed with an M'bossabilities folder,a ribbon was added and a fancy brad covers the ribbon knot. The background panel is attached to the card base with pop dots. The dogwood flowers, patterned paper squares and their mats are cut out with Nestabilities.  I added a little faux stitching on the tag.

Cardstock:  Express-It, Georgia Pacific, Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Out of Print)
Stamps:  Gina K Designs (Vintage Chic, Dogwood and Butterfly)
Ink:  Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Copics:  R81, 83, 85; YG03, 05
Embellishments/Tools:  Spellbinders (M'bossabilities-Splendid B, Classic Squares Large & Small), brads (The Paper Studio), CM Black pen, Want2Scrap bling, ribbon (The Ribbon Boutique)

I'm entering this card in the following additional challenges:
