Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge 220

  I have enjoyed the day today stamping and updating my blog. This week is spring break for our schools and my son plays lacrosse and has mandatory practice this week so we are just relaxing and enjoying being at home. This is the first time I have ever posted a SCS Sketch Challenge. This is Sketch Challenge 220. When I saw this sketch I knew immediately which designer paper I wanted to use. I love using the designer series papers on my cards, they make backgrounds so easy and beautiful! I also used the "Flower Daises #2" bigz die (114520) and cut two of the small daisies in pink pirouette and I used a brad from the circle designer brads. The base of my card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" in Pink Pirouette. The next layer is 4" x 5 1/4" in Bordering Blue. The strips are cut from the "Bella Birds" designer series paper and measure 1" x 3 7/8". The stamped phrase is from the set "On Your Birthday" and the image under the words is from the set "Frames with a Flourish".

Thanks for all your positive comments!
