CCMC189 and Unscripted Sketches 146

Sunday, February 19, 2012

I absolutely LOVED the colors for the challenge this week at Create With Connie and Mary, so there was not way I was going to skip it.



For my first attempt, I tried embossing one of the flowers from Fabulous Florets with the gorgeous Melon Mambo embossing powder, but it didn't look very good against this yummy Lucky Limeade dp.  So I went back to one of my favorite flower stamps from Array of Sunshine.  I stamped it twice and fussy-cut the layers to give it some dimension.  My layout is courtesy of the latest sketch challenge at Unscripted Sketches.

Thanks for stopping by!
