Sketch Challenge

I thought this was the most fabulous sketch when I saw it on my friend Verna's blog.  I had a
Die-namites Leafy Flourish that I thought would work with the sketch.  Here is my take on the challenge which was to use the sketch and the color pink.  I used several dies for this.
MFT Fish tails. Spellbinders bitty blosoms and leaves. IO and Sizzix  Hearts and Die-Namites Leafy Fourish  http://www.die-namites.com/Leafy-Flourish_p_56.html in green and white.  I will enter this in the Die-Namites Sketch and Dare Challenge

Friends are Flowers

I absolutely love tis sentiment from IO.  I wanted it to be the star of the card so I embossed it in white embossing powder and then sponged with distress inks.  I used a Cuttlbug embossing folder Birds and Vines for the white panel.  The flourishes are from IO's Heart Flourish that I pieced together.
The following IOproducts were used.
Die 055-N
Die 126-U
Stamp F4157
