Creative Sketches 1st Sketch Caught Up

 There is nothing like being several weeks behind, LOL! I actually have taken some time to get back on track this week and have found it refreshing to just create and work on my challenges. Kind of the calm before the storm as I have 7 events during Nov. for From Our Hearts.  I am estimating these events will produce around 2100 cards!
That's a lot of work but oh, so worth it.

I took some time to create this weeks card (check back Thursday) and finally create the first sketch that I missed.
I actually had something in pink in mind for this sketch originally but the idea didn't quite gel. Worked perfectly for last weeks sketch so sometimes you have to go with the flow. This card kind of meandered it's way into the creation you see. I just pulled out a bit of this and that and started to tweek it. I used the Just Believe and Sincere Salutations stamp sets, Pear Pizzaz cardstock, Concord Crush DSP from the Level 1 hostess paper pack, the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch (love how this punches out), Basic Pearls, a retired flower from the Pretties kit (which I believe is available in the Paper Daisies pack), Pear Pizzaz, Concord Crush and Blushing Bride markers.

I used the Blushing Bride brush tip on the marker to color the edges of my flower and the tiniest pearls down the center of the punched ribbon strip.
