Grow With Love (SSS61)

Happy Weekend! It's time for another Saturday Sketch from The Sweet Stop and this week we have a "sketch with a spin" - decorate the inside of your card. I don't do that often enough, it really finishes off the card nicely!

I used a beautiful set from Flourishes today called From the Garden. Believe it or not but the pot and the flowers are 2 separate stamps - neat! There are a few different options of flower to use with the pot and I chose the geranium.  Geraniums always remind me of my mother-in-law, she always has several pots of red geraniums around her house and yard and seems to have a way with them! :)

I loved this sketch - pretty clean and simple but very versatile! After I colored my image with Copic markers I cut it out and stamped the sentiment.  The patterned paper is from Jillibean Soup.  As I tried to decide what to add for ribbon or an embellishment I just started playing around with this thin silk ribbon and ended up making a small, loopy bow with a small button in the center.  I love the way the silk ribbon drapes so nicely and makes the bow seem soft and the loops remind me of all the small flowers in the geranium.

The inside is lined with the same dp and cardstock and I stamped the small image from the set in the bottom corner. 

I hope you have a chance to give today's sketch a try!  Leave a link on The Sweet Stop blog if you do and please do go over and check out the rest of the DT's work!!  Have a wonderful weekend!
