First up is a card I created for this week's Sugar Bowl challenge which combines the use of a sketch with an option to use flowers. I used the basic bones of the sketch but offset the stamped piece plus subsituted the large rectangular block with one of the Pink Paislee Flip Notes. In order for it to be big enough, I cut it in two and placed under the outside edges of the image block. The stamp is "Reflective" by Sugar Nellie and I stamped it with Memento Ink onto Prism Simply Smooth Cardstock, then colored with Copic Markers. Since I don't have the airbrush system, I sponged the edges with Colorbox Chalk Ink (Bisque) instead.
