Thought for the day -

Good morning all!  It seems like ages since I made a card but I finally took the time last night, after homework and reading time with Jordan.  We are reading a John Grisham book- yes my 2nd grader and I are reading John Grisham's newest book which is geared to ages 8-12!

My card is covering several challenges but I will start with the challenge that inspired the overall look- the sketch.  Todays sketch comes from Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge.  They provided an awesome sketch:

And here is my take:

Now it is a little difficult to see but there is a circle underneath the image and all thos flowers!  My cute little bride comes from Digi Stamp Boutique.  I've colored just her flowers, hair & skin with prisma color pencils and just lightly chalked her dress and veil.  I cut my circle and image with my nesties and my heart was made with my cricut using the accessories cartridge.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
And isn't it wonderful how the camera picks up every faux pas and amplifies it, LOL.  I thought I would add a  little shimmerz to my heart and then decided to take it off- that's why you see some specks of glitter.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday:  the sketch
Charisma Cards:  Die cuts
Stampin for the weekend: anything goes
Stampin B's Design Team:  a die cut, circle and flowers
Fab & Funky Challenge: Flower power

Thanks for stopping in on my little corner of the world- and hopefully my entries will be a little more frequent!
