ISSC15- love ya. MOM.

Good Friday morn'!! Yippee it's Friday- I know I say this every Friday but, I MEAN it 'cause for me that means a weekend is almost here and a little free time!! Kick starting the weekend with the 14th installment of I Spy Sketches. This is the sketch challenge where we come looking for YOUR cards for inspiration!! This week the sketch is based on ISSC15 is based on this card from Leanne (From Leanne @ SCS). You need to check it out... it's gorgeous!!

Couldn't help but, think of my MOM on this Mother's Day weekend. She's smart, loving, perservering, courageous, loyal, supportive, loving, forgiving, ... did I say LOVING (think that's the key to all the other traits- they come easily when you love). She raised 5 kids and some grands and she did it with "style"!! My HERO!!

Used a whole buncha' Verve and some older BG papers (Olivia). Flowers are from Verve's Hope Blooms, colored with copics, fussy cut, slit and curled up, to add dimension. On the smaller ones I added some beads (from a shirt/sweater extras-how's that for recycling!). Leaf image was stamped on early espresso, heat embossed with clear embossing powder, cut with Verve's Leafy Sprigs die and some curling with the fingers. Sentiments are from Verve- Twitterpated and Love Deepens. Check out the Verve here.

Here's the sketch

That curve may throw you off (just sayin' Kim) but, there are options- torn paper, rolling hills, math rulers, part of a saucer.. it can be done!!

Here's how to play
  • Create a paper crafting project (card, scrapbook page, or 3D item) based on the sketch provided
  • Post your creation on your blog or an online gallery (using a code ISSC07) and link it to the I Spy Sketch challenge blog using the InLinkz widget. Please provide a direct link to your post-not the generic link to your blog.

It's your turn....have fun and get to Stampin!! Make a card using the sketch- you can take a bit o' liberty and link it up.... we'd LOVE to see what you create!! Make sure and stop by the blog to see what the other Special Agents created-serious coloring and creativity!!

Great job on the sketch Vickie. I really like how you ripped the edges of the papers. Those flowers are stunning too! It is nice to see a different shaped flower :)
