Stamping 411, Saturday Sketch #162

Hey everyone, I subscribe to Stamping 411's blog and every Saturday they have a new sketch challenge.  I liked how simple this one looked and figured I'd give it a try. 



Here is what I came up with.  I played with Poppy Parade, one of this year's In Colors, along with the Hostest Level 1 Designer Series Paper (also in Poppy Parade).  I added a layer of Whisper White ran it through the big shot using the Perfect Details Texturz Plate, for a little added dimension. The flowers were also done with the big shot using the Floral Fusion die. 

The little flowers in the center were punched out with the 4 petal flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  1st done in Whisper White, then again with the same DSP I used for the background. 

Finally I stamped Thanks from the Thank You Kindly stamp set, in Poppy Parade and layered it again on the same DSP!  Let me know what you think.
