SKETCHY FRIDAY CHALLENGE:...using flower bud

an another friday has come and it is my turn to invite you to join in the fun.

we have sketch #11 for today. you should know you there is no need of using a SK Digi to participate. any other digi image you already have is ok to use. however, there is a freebie section in the shop that you can use. i would recommend you do the later. they are free, why not use them, right?

i love sonia's sketches so much and with this one i made a long and tall card. i told you i was going to make bigger cards, for a while at least. i have too much paper i need to use. :D

Wishing You a Beautiful Day
trifold card
3.75" x 8.5"
oh my! look how pretty and look who is getting better at coloring with the spectrums, :-P
i am learning how to shade since i was having trouble with it. i changed the cardstock i was using and tried coloring with a georgia pacific one and....much better.
---can click on the photos to zoom in---

this is our beautiful sketch for this week.

i love the papers i used romantic  and  soft  and   yummy. 

a look from atop to see the tri-fold.

and this is my beautiful card in all its glory--- wink!
 the main element on my card and it is another new release from the sk digi shop. it is called flower bud, so cute!----- sonia is rocking these babies, yay!---and again, i fuzzy cut it all, including the flourishes. 
the sentiment is also from sk digis. aren't those fonts georgeous? i think they are.

the birdies and the banner are stickers and the banner where i stamped my sentiment, was hand cut. the left border was done with an older fiskars punch that it embosses as it borders. hard to see for you but it looks really nice...the yellow enamel dots and the patterned paper are both from my mind's eye.
i found the base for my card in my forgotten supplies. i bought a box of it at a local surplus store (a while-while ago) and it is what inspired my tall tri-fold card.----don't you love it when you find forgotten goodies?--oh, i do. :)

i hope you get on our sketchy friday wagon and have fun coloring, then go back to sketchy friday and link your project for a chance to win some nice candy. we would love to see what you make.
