Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!!

Here is my card for this week's There She Goes Challenge, TSG35, which is to create a card using flowers, and also for this week's sketch challenge on SCS, SC261!

For my card, I used one of my favorite There She Goes sets, Flowers of Happiness. I started by stamping this beautiful Walt Whitman quote, "Happiness, not in another place but this place...not for another hour by this hour" in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock. I then cut out my shape with Mega Curved Rectangle Nestabilities, and then stamped the flowers in each corner.

I sponged around the edges with Memento Canteloupe and Memento Tangelo, and colored the flowers with Copic Markers. I used Classic Red Prism Cardstock and paired with with some yummy red gingham from Farm Fresh by October Afternoon. I finished off my card with two vanilla brads and a double ribbon and all the layers were sewn with my sewing machine!!

You can get all the deets on the TSG Challenge right here! Just make a card using flowers and you can have a chance at winning a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store! Bonus!
