Tuesday Morning Sketches #297

Hello!  Thank you for coming to my little corner of blog-land.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and our sponsor is DRS Designs.

My card features Just a Note (one line sentiment stamp) and Three Flowers and a Butterfly stamps.  Now, I want you to know that I did a little surgery with my stamp.  Let me show you the card first...

I had this idea and at first my idea was a bit bigger.  But as the evening wore on, and I'm running out of time.... my daughter using my computer... my son in the kitchen making tzatziki sauce for school tomorrow, my idea shrunk a little.  I was thinking huge daisy and had to settle on little posies.  The original stamp is a cluster of 3 flowers with a butterfly hovering over to the left.  Well, I cut off the highest flower and the butterfly to use as separate stamps.  But no worries, when I want to use my stamp as it was made, I just mount the pieces on the block in the right spot and voila - frankenstamp!

I kept it clean and simple and embellished it with the swirly die cut border (MFT Stamps) that reminds me of the icing on a Hostess cupcake.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you at TMS.  Have a great day!

I agree the swirly embossed part does look like the icing on a Hostess cupcake!! But I also think it is perfect for this card. I like the touch of color against all the way. Great job with the sketch! You made a fabulous card!
