The Flower Challenge #31 a Sketch!


Now you might think that because I'm on a Sketch challenge team that this is easy for me … you'd be wrong!  But today I was easily inspired by this one:
 
I have had NBUS in my stash for so long that it's now discontinued - do NOT let that happen to you!  But, seriously?  This set from The Stamp Market is too pretty to let a little thing like extinction get in the way!
 
 
 
That little Gingko embossing folder is here as a reminder to use it again soon!

The Gingko leaves are so cute!!! A great choice for some texture behind the sweet flowers! And I love you added a leaf instead of a flower! So creative and unique as always, Michele!!!
