Utah Divas International - Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

I love the Sketch Challenge for Utah Divas International this week.  I used a Stamp Set (Baroque Motifs) that I bought a long time ago and have never used. Does that sound familiar? :) I am not sure why I have never used it but then when I think of all the Stamp Sets I own it really does make sense.

I used my favorite color Card Stock of all time - Chocolate Chip.  It is such an easy and wonderful color to work with.  I also used one of my favorite techniques - Heat Embossing. 

Carol asked us to use Punches for this weeks challenge.  It was a challenge for me as I wanted to use my Big Shot, and my Circle Scissor Plus and Glass Mat. I made the larger punch using the Scallop Circle punch.  I punched Whisper White Card Stock 4 times and folded the scallops in half, then adhered them together to make one large scallop circle.  I used a couple of flowers out of the Pretties Kit.  A Rhinestone Brad gave it the finishing touch in the middle of the embossed flower.
