Sweet Sketch Wednesday #90

Hi Friends! Happy Friday! This card is one that I was just not sure about and had to walk away from, take a fresh look before I liked it. Isnt that funny how that works sometimes? Well, this card is for my fav sketch challenge blog, Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The ladies there are all so, well, sweet! hehehe

I also owe two of my fellow Clear Dollar Stamps design team members a big shout-out for inspiring me on this card. The first being Sarah Taylor, she first stamped one of the eggs in this set on patterned paper. I would have NEVER thought of that, Thanks Sarah! Go check out her blog for more great inspiration! The second is Lisa Lara and her tutorial at ClearlyiStamp on how to make 3-D flowers. I obviously need more practice. lol

Kristi, I love this card. The non-traditional colors make it really stand out. The pearls are such a great addition. I know what you mean, we are always so critical of our own work. Nothing to worry is perfect. HugsXX
