Sweet Sketch Wednesday New Sketch #98

Hello and a good morning to you,

I hope everyone is safe and have not had too much  trouble with these current storms that have been moving around for the past couple of days. I know we have received so much rain that our river is right at the flood stage so we can not afford too much more of these down pours.
My little sweet daushand , Abby has been a nervous wreck with the thunder and lightning and has taken to sleeping under my bed the past two nights. Which is okay with me for right now as her barking for hours was depriving me of what  little sleep I do get.

Ok, let's me share with you our sketch and wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge at Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

We are on challenge #98 this week with a fun sketch designed by Arlana



Our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge is one of our favorites each month


Sally Ann owner of Digi Stamp Boutique  is offering a Fabulous Prize of 6 digi from her store to our lucky winner.




For my card I used a free image from Digi Stamp Boutique that was offered a while back. I really like the fun colors I used matching them to this cute design paper I found in my supplies. Not sure who it is by as I just had a 6x6 piece and thought it was a  perfect piece to use with this sweet image for a fun Spring card.
Along with the fun design in the sketch this card just came together very quickly. That's always a nice plus when making a card. My card stock is PTI Terracotta and Avocado and a small circle of SU Barley Banana.
I embossed both circles with two of my newer Cuttlebug folders and then added a MS border punch under my ribbon to help bring in the green color to my layout. Buttons are pre-advesive from Sassafrass, I also added a wee bit of Dazzling Diamonds to the flower and the wings of the bee.

I hope you will join us this week as this sketch is really a fun and easy sketch to play with.
Now before you start designing your card swing on over to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday as the team has some amazing cards with lots of inspiration they are sharing. Don't forget to comment on the blog too as that is one of the requirements to be a Grand Prize winner.
