Lily Pad sketch challenge

Lucy has given us another fun sketch this week at Lily Pad Cards:

We got to choose a set of Lawn Fawn stamps, and I chose the one called Bannerific.  I have loved it from the minute I saw it - I love that the banners and birds are simple designs, easy to cut out when I need just a little somethin' to hold my sentiment. 


Here is what I came up with for the challenge:


I wanted to use papers as much as possible rather that other stamps, so I started with this pastel background paper to give a garden effect, added a die-cut trellis over it (thanks Yvonne!), and then made a little climbing rose to go up towards the banner.  Our gardens make me smile, so that's my sentiment.

supplies: white, green, pink, yellow and blue cardstock, background dp from K&Company Watercolor Bouquet Mat Pad, Cheery Lynn die-cut trellis: "lattice 2", Die-namics rolled rose die-cuts, Lawn Fawn "Bannerific", Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Messages, CG108 Special Moments (rose leaves), versafine onyx black ink


Don't forget to hop on over to Lily Pad Cards to see what the rest of the Design Team made this week!  Wait 'til you see - they are real stunners!
