Mid-week sketch challenge + another sneak peek!

I thought it might be fun to put together a mid-week sketch challenge to inspire your stamping, so I sketched up this design and I hope you’ll play along!

Here is the sketch…


And here is my card to help get you going, another sneak peek at another new stamp set, this time Beautiful Birthday (see complete set below)


I used a few of the colors from our brand new FIESTA color palettehibiscus as the card base, with a panel of margarita + hibiscus and margarita inks for the flowers. The buttons are also new and come in the FIESTA palette. I chose buttons in marigold to embellish the flowers. So bright and cheery!


What would you put in those circles? What colors would you use? Which sentiment would you put on that strip across the bottom? I would love to see, so please join in and link up below so everyone else can see your beautiful creation, too!  Don’t worry if you don’t have a blog—upload your card to Pinterest and link up to that photo!

I hope some of you will play along!
