I have a card that i made for Tuesday Morning Sketches, i saw the sketch on Jessi's blog and it looks like it would be a lot of layers and details. But i was looking at it and thinking how can i make this sketch CAS and still follow the sketch. Well the other day i was crafting and decided to tackle the challenge!!

All the elements are from my extra do-dad dish, the twist in the challenge is to use flowers and i knew i had some (ok lots, hehe) in the dish! I found 4 that matched and where the right size. I also found a kraft bow die cut.

For the scallop i found half of one in my dish, but it was white so..... i used Kraft ink to color it so it would match the kraft theme i have going on! Next i used a gold pen to sketch out a rectangle, similar to the sketch. I also used the pen to add some detail to the bow and flower centers.

I adhered the scallop then the flowers and bows. And of course one flower got away, so i had this glue spot that i had to covered, hence the butterfly! Last i used the gold pen to ink up my thanks stamp and stamped it below the rectangle!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
