So Thankful {MTSC105}

Hi there!  It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another one of Mercy's sketches!  This will also be my last week as part of Mercy's sketch team.  Mercy recently announced that she will not be continuing her sketches in 2011 and I will not be able to participate next week because Hubby took a week off and we're just gonna hang together as a family!  I will have a couple posts, but for the most part my blog will be pretty quiet until the new year!  I also have some exciting announcements coming soon!!  Anywho.....

My card is COMPLETELY inspired by this FANTASTIC card by Julee Tilman.  I took one look at Julee's card and couldn't get it out of my mind!  I loved the colors and those gorgeous flowers!  Mine is not nearly as beautiful as Julee's, but I do love how it turned out!  All stamps used are from Verve.

I stamped the Wild Flower Plain Jane in Pure Poppy four times, cut out three flowers and just a portion of the fourth flower and popped it up on the center flower for dimension.  Each flower center is finished with Star Dust Stickles.  The text layer was stamped with a stamp from the new Text Objects in Pure Poppy.  It was cut out with Rectangle Nestabilities.  The background layer was embossed with the Scallops and Circles Impression Plate from Taylored Expressions.  The sentiment is from Amazing Wishes.  Some adhesive gems and gingham ribbon finish the card!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the girls to see what they've cooked up with this week's sketch!
