Sweet Sketch Wednesday 102-43 & Digi Stamp Boutique

Good morning Sweet Sketch Wednesday followers.  It is that time again.  I must say that Wednesdays really roll around fast these days. 
I don't know if you noticed our sketch number at the top.  It reads "102-43" We have decided that once a month we will be highlighting a sketch from the past. The "43" represents that it is sketch #43 that we have used in the past. This way we will be able to use some of our wonderful old sketches.
Our sponsor this week is our monthly sponsor:
Digi Stamp Boutique 
 Sally Ann has been so gracious these past few years.  We really appreciate her support.
This week Sally Ann is offering our GRAND PRIZE WINNER 6 digi images.

Here is Arlana's wonderful sketch.  Be sure to stop by our DT blogs.  They have some wonderful creations this week.

 I have used the image:  "Henry and Zoe Get Wed"
I am not sure what prompted me to use pastel blues and pink for a wedding card.  But, here it is.

Stampin Up and K & Company paper.
Copic markers
Paper flowers

#22 PATTI P.

Patti, Please email me your mailing address at

Our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday is:


Cheryl is offering our Grand prize winner a $5.00 Gift Certificate.

I used the image "April Umbrella" 

I used Stampin Up paper and paper from my stash.  Sometimes, you have so much paper that you can't remember who it is from.  I added some black rhinestones to accent the white satin ribbon.
I used "Smooch Spritz" on the flower.  It gives it a nice sparkly finish but is quit expensive to use.  Arlana and I couldn't believe that it didn't go very far when we used it. I am not sure it is worth the money you have to spend on buying it. 
I finished my card using the Deckled Nestiblities and glossy accents.

Tammy's images are absolutely precious. You will be ohhhing and awwwing over them when you check out her blog. I think I spent a couple of hours looking the other day and there are so many images I want to get. Pansy Fairy caught my eye and I fell in love with it. I also fell in love with the image "A Kiss for Sis". Here they are.
"Pansy Fairy"

"Kiss for Sis"

This just reminded me so much of a mothers love for her baby.
