Basket Bunch and the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #445

Ready for another Create with Connie and Mary Sketch Challenge?  


You know I am ready for some sunshine, flowers and bright colors.   The Basket Bunch stamp set and coordinating  Basket Builder framelits are just what I need to help me forget about the rain and gray skies.

I used the Basket Bunch Bundle for the basket of spring flowers.  I colored the flowers and leaves with the Stampin' Up! Watercolor pencils and an Aqua Painter.  I added touches of glitter to the middle of the flowers cause you know I like my glitter.  I used the Sunshine Wishes thinlits and cut out the "congrats" three times.  I stacked and glued them so they would stand out a bit more.

The tiny polka dot DSP on the front of the card is from the Pop of Pink Specialty DSP pack.   The Daffodil Delight(front of the card) and the Melon Mambo strip ( inside of the card) are from the Brights DSP Stacks.  

Be sure to check out what the other designers have created using this sketch.  You know they always have great ideas.  I hope you will join in the challenge and be sure to let me know if you do!
