Utah Divas International - Saturday Sketch Challenge

Hello Friends,

This is the sketch we were given to work with for this week.

It has been a while since I have used my Pretties Kit and so it was fun to use this kit as part of the challenge.
Here is what I came up with!
Can you tell who I was thinking of whilst in my Stamp Room? :) 
Stamp Set :  Messages for Mom, Tiny Tags
Card Stock: Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper: Cottage Wall
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive 
Ribbon: Old Olive 5/8", Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Petals a Plenty Embossing Folder, Eyelet Border Punch, Mini Glue Dots, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive
Tools: Big Shot, Paper Cutter

I tried something different.  I used the heart stamp from the Tiny Tags Stamp Set.  I inked it up with Rich Razzleberry Ink and stamped directly on to the flower from the Pretties Kit.  I 'stamped off' for some of the images too to give it a different look.  I added a pearl with a mini glue dot in the middle of the flower.

Added some beads from the Pretties Kit for an extra special look. I also used the flower stamp from the Messages for Mom Stamp Set and inked it up with Old Olive and then stamped off before stampin' sporatically over the Mom Image.

Pretties Kit 109114  Price: $29.95

The flowers are white so you can color them to coordinate with our exclusive colors using Stampin' Pastels, Watercolor Wonder Crayons, or Classic ink to dye the flowers.
