Sweet Sketch Wednesday with Floral Jug

I've been looking out my kitchen window enjoying some "Brown-eyed Susans" that had self-seeded and came up volunteer in my garden. We didn't have them last year in the drought, so it was nice to see that some seeds must have still been viable. It's been many years since I planted them. Flowers are such a blessing from God. I'm amazed at the evidence that He loves color, design, variety,  and pattern even more than we crafters do!

The image I'm using today has such a nice selection of flowers that I wanted to share it with you today. It's called "Floral Jug" by Laurie Wilson from Clearly Digi Stamps. I chose to use the colored image for a fast card.

To start my card, I chose to use the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Bingo from Crafting for all Seasons.


This month I'm trying to show my friends how to "use it up." The pink paper on the bottom is from our CTMH "Flirty" workshop and the Crème Brulee is from "Veranda" from Spring 2010. I have so many brads I'm not sure that I'll ever use them up except for the corduroy brads. Close To My Heart also stopped making the organdy ribbons long ago and I still have plenty for cards like this one that is Pansy Purple like the brads.

The Cuttlebug embossing folder that I used is called "Textile." I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities called "Lattice Rectangles."

May God bless your heart as you see His creation around you each day!
