Freshly Made Sketches and WPlus9

Hello All!

It is that time of week again, when we have a new sketch at FMS- this week it is the talented Narelle who has a fabulous sketch for us!  Who can resist Narelle's beautiful floral creations?!

Every now and again I love a wonderful vintage style card and gingham always seems to lend itself to a 50's look.  Add that with a sweet bird and cup of blooms from WPlus9's Hello and Thanks in primary colors and you have retro!

Here is your sketch~

Admittedly I did take small liberties with this sketch as I did not interpret the circles and square literally, but, all the components are still there.   And btw, Kim S. and I did not know we were crafting with the same stamp set.  It was total coincidence!
The flowers were stamped twice, colored and fussy cut out, as was the bird.  The cup was stamped onto the card panel and colored, then masked so I could stamp the gingham background.  The Gingham Background stamp is from Divinity Designs.
Once the background and cup were done, I diecut the panel with MFT's scalloped rectangle die (Yes, I seem to be doing this a lot lately), flipped the scalloped portion and adhered it to a red card base.
The flowers and bird are popped up on dimensional tape.
Check out all of the inspiration from the rest of the team on the blog - they ALWAYS wow me- then link up your creation!
