bonus sketch from clouds!

wow, i had a LOT of fun playing with Clouds lovely sketch this week over at 2sketches4you... i don't think i've been able to make a bonus sketch card in... like... forever! i love layered flowers, and the big circle/ square element on the card was too perfect for this white, pink and orange flower. i know flowers don't come like this in nature, but wouldn't it be fun if they did? i tied a bow beneath the orange flower with some brown satin ribbon, and added my orange flower, button, and twine onto the bow.

this card was fun to make... partly because of the flower, and the sentiment i chose... "go wild" :D hehe, i cut out the "wild" using the Simply Sweet cartridge with my Cricut. i added some orange bling to the letters, and used some lovely brown hounds tooth layered with kraft cardstock...

oooh, and don't you love Sassafras Lass paper? i bought a single sheet the other day, and i love this color combo. pink = one of my favs, and orange = second set of favs :D here's the finished card, in all its bright blingy glory!

i love the little border on the bottom of Sassafras paper... and this was no exception. too cute not to use! loved making this card, and will most definitely use the sketch again. so thanks for looking, and thank you Clouds for a LOVELY sketch! :D
