The Challenge- A Sketch

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!

It's May, it's May!  Hard to believe, isn't it?  I love May with the spring green foliage all around, warmer temps and and thoughts of summer.  But it also brings the stress of trying to get everything done by the end of the school year.  However, there is ALWAYS time for stamping!
This week we have a sketch for you at The Challenge~

I took some liberties with this sketch, as you can see~

I rotated the sketch, moved my panels around a bit, and left the banners off.  I really love how this turned out.  I made this specifically for my mom, who has been in the hospital for 3 weeks.
To start, a border was stamped with the hexagon background stamp from PTI's Rosie Posie.  Then I dry embossed a piece of white cardstock and  diecut it with the polaroid die from SU's On Film Die set.  I took the center die cut piece out and just angled it over the polaroid frame. 
I added a bit of cheese cloth for interest under the rose and white twine around the sentiment panel; I have been trying to make cards more mailable these days, so I am limiting the bows and bling! 
I am linking up to:
