Sweet Sketch Wednesday #92

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday! Spring has definately arrived here in the desert Southwest, trees are blooming, bulbs are peeking out from the soil, I just love the renewal of spring. However, I do not really like loosing an hour when we change our clocks ahead -- tonight -- ugh
Anyway, onto this morning's card. I made this one for Sketch #92 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. The ric-rak shape on the sketch really caught my eye. I ended up with a double monochromatic theme. I really love this shade of blue, and the pink just seemed a logical choice. I like that the rose is polka-dotted. Wouldnt it be fun to grow polka-dotted flowers?
Clear Dollar Stamps makes these flowers, polka-dot or not, easy with the Blooming Bouquet die set that coordinates with two CDS flower sets.
