Hugs - The Challenge #45

Happy Monday!

It's time for a new challenge at

This week we have a great sketch for you to use:

Check out the rest of the Design Team's projects along with our Featured Designer and Weekly Guest Designer too:

Nance Salkeld - That's me! (You are HERE)!
Guest Designer - Valentyna Komisarenko

Here is my card:

I used a new die from Poppy Stamps, a mum floral die.  I just love it!  I cut it three times to get all three colors I used.  I actually used the orange cardstock I cut the flower from to inlay the brown flower and then carefully glued all the tiny yellow and orange flower petals inside the outline. The patterned paper I had in my stash and thought it went perfectly with the flower petals.  The sentiments is from Lil' Inker Designs that I stamped in Rich Cocoa on a scalloped circle die.  I also used a stitched circle die and regular circle die.  I made my card pretty clean to make the flower center stage.  I now have two other mum dies cut to make one or two more cards.

For Following Challenges:

Hope you join us this week.  Can't wait to see all the creative ways everyone uses our sketch!

Sketchy Challenge Blessings!
