My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

I created this for the sketch challenge, hosted by Cindy Haffner (MFTDT member, current member of SCS's Dirty Dozen, and all-around sweetheart and fabulous stamper!!). I used 'Build A Bouquet' by My Favorite Things. I've had this set for a while now and hadn't had much time to play with it. I love it!! Lots of different styles and sizes of flowers, which is just perfect because I like to use lots of layers when I 'build' my flowers. ('Build' my flowers........ Build' a Bouquet....ha!!) ANYway.... I used the MFT sketch as my starting point, though I did cheat a little. (I added a Ribbon Blossom to the left side of the main image.) I don't often do the sketch challenges here on SCS, but I am really starting to like them for helping me find my mojo. (The lighter-colored flowers are Eggplant stamped off once, then stamped again and cut out.) I found the large gold brads in the office supply section at a local store---100 brads for just a little over a dollar-can't beat that! (I go through a TON of brads, so it's great to find a deal!) Be sure to check out the sketch challenge on the MFT Forum on Splicoaststampers....there are some really nice sketch challenges to inspire you too! Thanks for looking---hope you like it! Have a great afternoon everybody!
