Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #44

...And the challenges continue!  Honestly, how would I ever get anything finished if it weren't for a challenge?  I really have no idea, and sketch challenges are one of my favorites.  Coloring is fun and easy, but the planning and layout take me forever, so sketch challenges are a life saver for me!  One of my favorite sketch challenges to play along with is the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge, sponsored by Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.  This week, the challenge includes a spin, which is to use flowers, and if you play along and upload your card or project you will be entered into a drawing to win a $20.00 gift certificate from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.  Woohooo!!!  Freebies!!!  LOVE 'EM!!! 
This card is made with the Timid Timothy set from Sweet -n Sassy Stamps.  Isn't he sweet?  That bouquet of flowers is almost as big as he is!!  Timothy was colored with Copic markers, and I did a little decorative hand stitching around the image with some embroidery floss.  Once again, I used some of my favorite (shhhhh... it's all my favorite) K&Co. paper, and SU card stock.  The flowers are from Bo Bunny, and were embellished with half back pearls.  That pretty much did it for this card. 

Thanks for your visit today!!  Have a blessed and wonderful day, and of course, happy stamping!

Love ya,

Oh I so hear you on the layout angst. I've said it a million times, I'll do the coloring if someone else creates the cards. Sketches have been saving me lately too but I seem to always forget to enter the contests. Sigh...

The way you "perked" up the layout is awesome and unique. Just love the coloring too. Another Lorie A+++ creation.

Hugs and Love ~
