SCS sketch card

Good Evening!
Today on SCS is the Sketch Challenge. I REALLY enjoy this challenge a lot. I decided to pull out another old retired set that hasn't seen ink in ages! Love Without End. I think I stamped the stem upside down...haha! Did you notice?
Stamps: Love Without End
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, WW and Uptown DP
Inks: Wasabi, Saffron, Amethyst
Accessories: 1/2"circle punch, dimensionals, Slit Punch, Double Stitched Grosgrain Wasabi
I love these Verve Visual Stamps! Such wonderful sayings in this Serenity set. I cuttlebugged the Saffron layer for some extra dimension. The flowers were stamped in Saffron and then sentiment in Artichoke over top. It's hard to tell in the picture but the ribbon is a darker Artichoke colour. For some reason it looks black in this pic. That little flower is from the bucket I bought at Michael's in the wedding department. Thanks to Lauren for the heads up on those ;)
I also used a Dew Drop from the Flame bottle for a little pop!

Stamps: Verve Visual Serenity; Cardstock: Artichoke, Saffron, WW; Inks: Saffron, Artichoke; Accessories: CB background, May Arts Ribbon, White Organdy Ribbon, paper flower, Dew Drop

Thanks for stopping by today!

ATTENTION Marisa: I just saw your comment about the flowers and Dew Drops in Canada....well I am in Canada too...I got the flowers at one of the stores here in Edmonton. As for the Dew Drops I bought mine from Peggy at PaperWorks Co. in Edmonton. You can buy them from her online or if you are close enough...just pick them up from her personally ;) Hope that helps you some!


  1. I love the flower friend card. Of course the colors are fantastic. Nice job.

  2. Hi dawn, OMG !!!!this is so , ao pretty , the flower is perfect for this sketch !!!!!super great colors, too. ooo love the verse on the other card.

  3. Great cards Dawn! Your second one is just so elegant! :)

  4. Lovely cards, the both of them. I love that Vevre set -- just got it so have to ink it up!! I never even noticed the stem was upside down on the other card. I actually fave'd it on SCS since I liked it so much.

    Thanks for the reminder about the flowers in the wedding dept. at Mike's. Read that on Lauren's blog and promptly forgot about it. Hope the Mike's in Canada carry them as they don't have the dew drops she talked about up here :(

  5. I found some of the dew drops at Michael's just where Lauren said they would be. Then one day I went to the Dollarama (in Saskatoon) and they have tons of them. Blues, greens, oranges, yellows, pinks - all for a dollar!!! I had already bought the clear and the pinks from Michael's for around $4.00 (they are regular $6.somthing and I used a 40% off coupon). If you live near a Dollarama definitely check it out.

  6. Your cards are so fresh and beautiful, Dawn!! I think I need that VV set too!! ;)

  7. Another fabulous day filled with wonderful Dawn Easton original designs!

  8. both beautiful, no I didn't notice the stem, it looks great that way too. Very pretty colours on the first one and the sentiment on the sentiment is so beautiful, love the double stamping!

  9. oooh, purdy, purdy cards Dawn, love them! Nope, did not notice about the stem, it looks great! I really like that dew drop, don't have any of these...have to look and see if someone around here has them! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex

  10. beautiful cards....i love the stem stamped upside down too---great idea even if it was a mistake at first!

  11. Both cards are wonderful. I love that long stem...upside down or not. and I love the dew drop in the second card. Joan

  12. Hey, I just noticed your message to Marisa about the dew drops in Canada....I'm checking it out. Thanks. Joan
