Here's the sketch for this week...


Yep we've switched things up a bit - you can work with the sketch OR the photo.. or BOTH - Mix and Match for the new Mix it Up Challenge!  Lots to love about this one - the photo has yummy colors.. creme, coral and blue.   Here's what I came up with...
I started with a creme and tan background made with the Circa Background Plate from Birch Press Design
I topped that with a stamped wreath from Sugar Pea Designs Funky Wreath set.   The flowers are from the Spring Addition.  Matching die cuts for both sets makes it easy to stamp a bunch of flowers and foliage in your favorite colors and arrange as you like.

The sketch had a horizontal line across the center of the front panel.  I didn't want to split up my background so I added rows of Twinery Flax Twine to respresent the line on the sketch.
