52 Sketches # 11



Hi, all, I am a couple weeks behind with my 52 sketches. Sorry about the glare on the photo. This was taken Mother's Day last year. Botanica, the botanical gardens here in Wichita, has no admission on MD, so we went for the first time that day. We have been a couple times since then. I love that place, it is AWESOME! (With apologies to Teresa!) Anyway, I got this new DP (Parisian Breeze and Walk in the Park) a couple weeks ago (Don't worry Jen, it was ordered BEFORE I started my no craft spending run) and it is so beautiful. I was going through pix on the computer and ran across this one--looked perfect for this DP! Next I checked 52 Weeks 52 Sketches, and found the perfect sketch--# 11. Colors are Baja Breeze, Whisper White, and Pretty in Pink. I used Technique Tuesday's Savannah Alphabet and embossed the title in white on Baja Breeze. I love their alphas, you can stamp cursive titles with ease! Used the Martha Stewart Picket Fence Border Punch and buttons from SU, PTI, and my stash along the border. Pink Flower is a Pretties from SU, dyed with Regal Rose reinker. Large yellow flower is Heidi Swapp, as is the blue, but it used to be white, I dyed and sponged it with Baja Breeze. Butterfly stamp is from a new SU set, will edit to add the name later.

Thanks for looking!
