Paper Smooches Sparks Flower Garden

HI!  Are you having a good holiday?  I'm having a quiet Christmas at home - enjoying the time I have with my kids while they are off school.   The weather is cold here making me want to stay in the house.  While they're playing video games I snuck off to play with my stamps.  I'm playing along with Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge today.  This week is a sketch challenge
Because it's cold I decided to make my own flower garden with the Calico set.   The sentiment is from the Sentiment Sampler that is packed with all sorts of sentiments and fonts.  I tried to stay true to the sketch adding some orange ric rac vs. a panel of paper across the center of my design.
 I hope you have some time to play!   Maybe I'll see you over at the Sparks Challenge!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
