Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Bloom with Hope

Happy Friday!  Looking forward to a beautiful and relaxing weekend, love this time of year.  Today I'm sharing my design team card for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge.  This is a great sketch and the designers really came up with some great ideas so I hope you can check them out and play along.  For my card I started with Sahara Sand for the cardbase and added layers of Basic Black cardstock and some DSP from the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.

For the main stamped image I decided to play with the Blendabilities markers and the Bloom with Hope stamp set.  I stamped the flower in Memento Ink (this is a fabulous black ink and I now use it whenever I need black) and then colored the flower in with Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities markers (it's fun to just relax and color).  I cut out the flower using the Big Shot and the Oval Collections framelits (do you know that these are currently on sale as part of this weeks Weekly Deals, awesome!!!) and cut a matching mat out of Old Olive cardstock.

For the greeting I used the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp set (did you know that with the photopolymer stamps you can bend them when you attach them to your clear blocks to get different shapes?  I made mine curve along the bottom to match the shape of the oval and stamped it in Daffodil Delight ink.  I added some fun ribbon details, including a bow out of 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon and a couple of little flags using the Crushed Curry Chevron Ribbon (it coordinates quite well) and the Natural 5/8" Chevron Ribbon.

This card is lots of fun and sure to brighten someone's day, just because.

Below are easy ordering links for all the products used on today's card:
