DivaSC29 Stampin' Up! Scene in a Garden

Happy Saturday and welcome to my blog!

If you are new to my blog, each Saturday I participate in a sketch challenge with my Diva friends at Utah Divas International. We invite you make your own and share it with us. You can either link it in a comment here or at the UDI blog. See my previous sketch cards by clicking on the "sketches" link in my left side-bar. And, now - here's today's card!

I finally got to play with some great Window Sheets from our Occasions Mini Catalog. This one is the simplest of the group with swiss dots, but it was just the touch I needed to dress up my card. Working with acrylic sheets can be tricky; after all, you'll be able to see any adhesive you use! However, the layout of the sketch allowed me to put adhesive behind each of the stamped images - hiding it completely! (Click here to see the other designs.)

The flowerpot and boots images are also from the mini catalog; they are part of a set called Scene in a Garden. The phrase, however, is from a full catalog set titled Bella's Bloom. A little bit of watercoloring added color to the images and some extra embellishments turned the center portion into a little hanging sign. The whole scene reminds me of a front door, welcoming you onto a friend's porch! Thank you for stopping by - and please check back next week for our next sketch challenge.
