Lattice Flower: Sketch Challenge

Good evening friends.  After a fun-filled vacation we arrived home this morning after flying home on the red-eye so I've been pretty tired today and worked hard to stay busy so I didn't fall asleep.  I'm hoping this will help me get adjusted back to from the time difference in WA.  Part of my day was spent in the studio working on swaps for convention and I definately wanted to play with this weeks Stamping 411 challenge.  This weeks challenge was a lot of fun and definately open to different possibilities.  I used the Summer Smootches DSP as the foundation of the card and to select all the coordinating colors.  I decided to try something different with the flower and used the Lattice die and Big Shot.  After cutting out two of the lattice pieces I trimed them down and layered them to create a flower.  I also ran the flower pieces through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to add some texture.  For the center I added a Pumpkin Pie button tied with Lucky Limeade baker's twine (I've fallen in love with using buttons in the center of flowers lately). 

The greeting uses the new Itty Bitty Banners stamp set and matching Itty Bitty Banner framelits.  I decided the card needed something towards the bottom so I added a piece of Real Red 1/4" Stiched Grosgrain Ribbon tied in a knot, the perfect addition.  This was a fun challenge and it's so fun to see what everyone comes up with and could be adapted with all kinds of DSP and embelishment shapes. 
Hope you enjoy and have a great week!
