I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose ~ April 8

Welcome to Day 8 of I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose.

Happy Easter!  Today is day eight of 30 for I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose.   Make sure you visit her blog here, and check out her awesome sketches.

Today's sketch is number 12.  First, take a look at the sketch . . . 

I was excited just looking at this sketch, because I knew I had just the right piece that I wanted to use for this specific card.  Here is my take on the sketch. 

The paper used for this paper is a sheet that is from a retired set from Stampin' Up.  It actually belongs in a Scrapbook set, but I wanted to use it for something else.  I was glad that I had enough of a scrap to complete this card.  The purple flowers on the left hand side are half of a sprig I bought at Michael's to use on a box I made.  They didn't work on the box, so I have been holding them for just the right project, and here i finally found it.

The flowers on the sprig are plastic, so I used my hot glue gun to glue them down.  I will have to wrap this up good when I mail it to keep from breaking the flowers.

I did struggle with the bow, ribbon, and pearls.  I always try to over embellish my projects and I kept trying to add more.  In this case, more would have been to much!!!

This card is going to a very special friend.

Please make sure you visit my Design Team Sisters blog and see their take on the sketch.
