Unscripted Sketch #16

It's Saturday! Finally! The best day of the week! I hope you all are having a great day so far! We have another fun, new sketch for you at Unscripted. We'd love to have ya come over and play along. Here is the link for you:

This week there was a little twist to the sketch.....we were to use a picture on a card. I originally thought of putting a picture of people on a card, but then I found this picture of flowers online. I loved the colors and texture of the flowers so much, I had to use it. So I printed it out and used my Cricut (Storybook cartridge) to cut the picture out. I will list the sizes for you if you would like to try to cut out this particular shape on the Cricut. The picture was printed at a 4x6 size. I cut out the shape on 3 3/4". I then cut the mat behind it out at 4". This is the first time I have ever cut out a actual picture with my Cricut. I was kinda nervous at first, but now I can't wait to do it again. LOL. The word 'beautiful' is from Home Decor and I used pink Stickles on it. The printed paper is from DCWV. I also added some velvet trim, doodling, bling, and butterflies (which were cut with my Cuttlebug). I used a Martha Stewart border punch for the bottom of the card. Here it is:

Aren't the flowers in that picture beautiful? I so wish I could have a huge garden filled with flowers that I could just enjoy any time I want. That is one of the biggest drawbacks of living in an apt...you can't plant flowers.

So do come on over to Unscripted Sketches and join us for this fun challenge! We'd love to see what you can do!!!
Thanks for droppin' by my blog! Take care and Happy Scrappin'!!!
