Sketch Frenzy Friday Card Sketch Challenge: Creative Elements

Good morning.  I'm so excited that today is the start of the Memorial Day weekend (just a few more hours of work to go).  Of course I need to leave you a little creative inspiration to start the holiday weekend.  Today I'm sharing the card I made for the Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge and Robin really gave us a fun sketch for inspiration.  I started with Smoky Slate Cardstock for the cardbase and added panels of designer series paper from the Eastern Elegance DSP package (retiring) that I matted with Coastal Cabana Cardstock.

For the main stamped image I used the Creative Elements stamp set (that's retiring and stamped the flower in Coastal Cabana ink on Whisper White cardstock before cutting it out with the Big Shot and the Squares Collection Framelits.  I made the mat with the same framelits and Smoky Slate cardstock.  The greeting is from the Express Yourself Hostess set (also retiring) and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  I used a sponge and Coastal Cabana ink to sponge around the edge and added pearls for a sparkly touch.  I did use dimensionals on both the flower panel and greeting so they pop up.

I love the soft colors on this card and I decided to make this a get well card but you could also make it for birthday, thank you, etc. just by changing out the greeting.  We would love for you to come play along with our sketch challenge, you have a little extra time this weekend so help you get some time to craft.
