It worked out beautifully this week, combining Freshly Made Sketches #159 with Nacho Average Challenge #112! Fresh colors for a fresh sketch!
Now, I know this is overkill even for me, but today I actually have TWO cards for this challenge combo. What happened was this: I went browsing for what stamp set I wanted to use. In the course of that, I noticed that I had somehow shelved Blended Bloom without using it first - GASP! Not supposed to happen! My strategy is to keep new stamps in a stack on my desk, and shelve them AFTER they've been inked at least once... The problem was I felt like the bloom was too big for the sketch idea. So I went with this perfectly lovely layout with Flower Patch, made even lovelier by its handy framelits.
But I couldn't get my naked little Blended Bloom out of my head. So then I thought - why not reverse those shapes? Then the flower will fit the sketch! Ta da! So then I had to go back and make that card, and wound up with this one. Sorry for being such a stampin' freak, lol. Everyone go back to your knitting, now...
PS. Gee, maybe I should make two more, for a boxed set! Stay tuned, lol...
