Love to Create Challenge #1

Good morning!  Thanks for visiting for the very first challenge for the newest challenge blog on the block.  Love to Create.  This is going to be a fun challenge blog with sketches, inspirations and great sponsors.  Bugaboo is sponsoring this first challenge and will be a regular.

This week's challenge is a sketch plus Pink, Red & White....

I created this embellishment myself.  I crocheted the flower and then added the button.  It was a little hard to stamp on the button because the surface was slightly rounded.  But gotta love Staz On, I was able to add the sentiment fairly well.

Here's the sketch....

I do hope you'll play along with us.  It'll be fun!
