Saturday Sketch Challenge #240

This is a very loose interpretation of this weeks' Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411.  I really had good intentions to work something up with two sizes of label Framelits and this is what I ended up with. 

Things you can't see:  The outside edge of the floral image has been watercolored with Soft Suede to set the image off.  The outer edge of the Vanilla frame and the larger split layers are sponged with Soft Suede.  A white gel pen makes nice highlight on the floral image, which is also lightly sprayed with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spray.

All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

Saturday Sketch Challenge #236

Many thanks to the Operators at Stamping 411 for featuring my card in this weeks' Stampers Showcase!

This is a quick card that I did for the Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge.  I hadn't done very much stamping since before the holidays, so I thought that it was about time to have a little fun!  It was a great sketch this week, as usual.  I don't know how the Operator's come up with all these great ideas!
