Sketch Challenge 8/23

Hey there Chickies!!  It's Lauren here with this week's sketch challenge.  With today being the first day of school, it's been a bit chaotic around here.  So, I made things a little easier on myself and borrowed a sketch from Clean&Simple.  It's sketch FTL67.  It's a classic, clean design that can be interpreted with a million different focal images. 

Being in a time crunch, I kept pretty closely to the sketch design. 

I used Orange Zest and Spring Rain as my color pallette.  I stamped the polka dots with Polk Dot Basics II and I added a subtle background text that you may not initially notice with Text Styles II.  The center flower is the Beautiful Blooms dies #1 and I used some Hobby Lobby felt.  The sentiment is from Signature Greetings and the patterened paper is Bitty Dot Basics.  A little ribbon and a Dark Chocolate button, along with a few orange rhinestones finished off this nice and simple card. 

Hope this sketch is simple enough to entice a few more participants this week.  If anyone knows how to include a Mr. Linky, please let me know!!

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with!!  ENJOY YOUR WEEK!!

Yikes - spam comment above. Mister linky is easy - you just have to add an HTML code to the post. Does anyone in this group have a Mister Linky account? They are free to set up and then you can generate a code each week. Or whenever you need one. I would help out but my access to the blog hasn't been set up yet!

Would really like to see this group more active -
