S & S Sketch Challenge #53

Today is "catch up on my blog" day.  Fortunately,  this post is still within the
S & S Sketch Challenge time frame.  I am working on my "Spring Thaw Challenge" box so many of my cards have been with a spring theme.

Here is this week's Sketch:
 And here is my card:

All products are Stampin' Up!  The card stock is Certainly Celery and Not Quite Navy.  The image is from "Garden Silhouettes."    The flat back pearls give the card a nice soft but elegant finish.  

Here's a tip:  I used the Certainly Celery stamp pad to ink the entire image then used the Bordering Blue SU marker to color in the flowers - the combination of the two inks came up as a great match, plus it was much faster than using two markers to color the image!    I used this same technique for the words also, which I should note are from the Gina K Designs set ""Spring Blooms."  

I love to read your comments (so please leave me one) and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.

Happy Stamping and God Bless!
