Sketch or theme time over at Sweet Stampin!

Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you have a great weekend planned - more gardening today, will hopefully cut enough back that I can then leave for a couple of weeks!  Then dinner with my parents tonight so looking forward to a yummy Chinese meal!  Tomorrow - who knows?  Perhaps a long walk along the coast although the weather doesn't look great!

Anyway, onto today's card!  Here is my next guest designer card for Sweet Stampin and this week we have a sketch or a garden theme - or both!  Of course, I did both...

 

Isn't this little lady a cutie?!  This week we are being sponsored by Heather Ellis of Pure Innocence fame!  This is Pure Innocence no 023 - but I like to call her cutie on a swing!  You can buy her here for just £1.50 here (jsut scroll down a bit!). 

I know there are plenty of garden fans out there so I hope you're inspired to join in!  Or of course, you can use the sketch...
See what the Design Team have done with this sketch and theme here - you'll love them!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Bazzill bling cardstock, My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky (bought mine from Quixotic Paperie here)
Stamps: Heather Ellis of Pure Innocence no 023 (you can buy her here), Paper Salon sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon from stash, BasicGrey brads
Tools: My Favorite Things flower and leaf dies, Nestabilities circle dies, Martha Stewart grass border punch
