Freshly Made Sketches #508

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #508!

I'm excited to be hosting the challenge this week and created this sketch with a borrowed stamp in mind. 

A couple of weeks ago I had a long overdue crafting day with friends and fell in love with the  CAS-ual Fridays Flowery Background stamp. Joyce Mehrberg generously let me take it home to play around a bit with heat embossing and watercoloring this fabulous explosion of flowers.

A deep pink panel is cut in half and adhered to the top and bottom of the card base first before the watercolored panel is popped up over it. The Avery Elle Thanks a Bunch sentiment is stamped on a PTI 
tag, layered with a couple other tags and tied with twine before being added to the watercolored panel.

I'm linking this card to Seize the Birthday #225 in the Anything Goes option.

I hope you check out the amazing Clean Team designs and play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
