Summer Flowers

#16 Sketch Time

And, here
is the sketch

My image is a digi image freebie by GGK and I got
The background paper is from Boho Chic from Making Memories.
The soft gold strips are distressed with gold liquid chalk ink.
The button is one of my sale finds from WalMart and so is
the crystal dragon fly. The coloring is done with colored pencils.

A bit more of summer flowers.
This was done for our weekly challenge at
Cardmaker. Our challenge was to use only punches
and one stamped sentiment that went with our image.
I don't have a collection of punches and the
ones that I do have are tiny. See......

But I punched my little heart out and made three posies from
a really pretty scrap of paper. The stems I made by punching
kitties and using their tails. Another thing I don't have
many of are sentiment stamps. I usually use the computer.
But I did find the words fleur and garden and used them
for a border. When my punching hand quits hurting,
I might try this again.

There is room for one more!!!
