Sweet Sketch Wednesday 90

Hi everyone! It's time for another Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch challenge and it's a dandy sketch this week. We're sponsored by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps this time and I've had such fun creating a card using the "A Flower For You" digi stamp from their collection. Here's a little more information about Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps:

Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps is a Christian digi stamp company offering a wide variety of hand drawn digital stamp designs and sentiments for the digital stamper or scrapbooker. We started out as a clear stamp company back in November 2007 and made the change over to all digital in February 2010. We have hundreds of fabulous digis to choose from starting at just $.99. Check us out at

Our Sweet Sketch Wednesday Grand Prize Winner this week will receive a $10 gift certificate at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. Thanks for this generous prize!

Here's the sketch to follow this week - another fabulous design by Arlana Patten. You'll love the layers on this one and the fun effects you can achieve.  
This adorable ladybug was colored with Copic markers and the daisy she's holding was popped up for some dimension. The fabulous daisy paper is from October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker" collection. The brown and cream papers were stamped with Papertrey's Polka-Dot Basics stamps and the yellow panel embossed with a Cuttlebug swiss dot folder. I think this all makes for a bright and cheerful birthday card!

Now be sure to pop over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog and see the design team inspiration this week. We'd love to have you join in the challenge too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Sharon, I just love your card, great minds think alike and both cards are just so so different. I couldn't make my mind up to cut the image out or leave it, so I'm glad you did as I like that look better for that image. I ran out of time if I'd cut it out and made a mistake I didn't have time to colour another one up. I just adore your colours it's just perfect great job.
Hope you have a great week and weekend.
