My card for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Sketch Challenge

I had a day of firsts yesterday. I attended my first blog hop, my first stamp release party and won my first set of stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! How exciting is that?? All I had to do to win them was leave a comment at each of the DT's blogs yesterday and Thursday. I really had no expectations of winning anything, just thought it would be fun to play along. So last night I attended Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps release party and saw my name announced! WOO HOO!! When I receive my set, I will create a card and post so you all can see my gift. In the meantime if you would like to see the set I won, head on over to Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps website and look at the Floral Flourishes and as long as you are there take a peak at all of the great stamps and supplies they have!

Along with the new releases being announced, there was a sketch challenge, technique challenge and a color challenge for us to try. I LOVE a challenge so I created this card for the sketch challenge. This really was a challenge for me and after trying different stamped images on it, I opted for the easy way out and put flowers on the front. The words ALWAYS and FOREVER are from the Love Letters Rub-Ons by ctmh. The paper is from the new My Reflections Unforgettable paper pack.

Most supplies are CTMH:
Paper: My Reflections Unforgettable
Ink: Cocoa and Blush
Embellishments: Blush Buttons, Big Blooms (white flower), Love Letters Rub Ons, Chocolate Waxy Flax, and Sorbet Ribbon
The Dark Brown Flower was purchased at Archiver's

I hope I have inspired you in some small way today! Do you have a blog? If so, leave a comment so I can check out your blog too!

Thanks for stopping by!! I promise I won't take as long to post again!
