My Sweet Friend

I'm back with another sketch challenge, this time from Lisa at Paper Sundaes.  I was really excited to try this sketch because the Paper Sundaes' design team did such a great job with their samples.  I'm happy to report that the sketch did not disappoint.  I really loved this sketch.  Not only is the design is innovative, but it's also a great way to use those strips of scrap paper my husband makes fun of me for saving. 


The stamp is from Penny Black.  I love how fat and happy the mouse in the spoon is.  Even though this stamp is one of my favorites, this is the first time I've made a card with it.  All of the papers are from the Nana's Nursery DCWV stack.  The collection is older, but I love the soft colors and sweet patterns.  I paper pieced the label on the jam jar, and I hand made the flower buttons out of polymer clay.  The flowers remind me of the blossoms on strawberry plants, so I thought they'd compliment the strawberry papers on the card. 

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Paperplay--"Make your own flowers"
Charisma Cardz--"Anything Goes"


Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!
