Bright and Springy card for GHWI #16 Sketch

It's funny, I look at this and think "Mary Engelbreit."  That was never my intention but it feels that way to me- I think it's those crazy bright, bold colors.  I think.

This is my Get Hippity with Ippity (GHWI) inspiration piece for this bi-weekly challenge sketch.

The first photo really shows the curl on the flower, leaves and butterflies- there's really very little of those that are attached to the background papers.  The third photo shows the shininess the flower took on when I rubbed it with an embosser to curl the paper.

Can I say I LOVE this "Now and Always" set?  I generally don't buy florals- you know how much I use them... NOT at all really!  I don't do florals, I do boy-stuff.  This though?  This is great.  It's also the same floral set I made the sympathy card with last week.  Now THAT'S my kinda set of stamps!  Check out Aletha's sales page for this and other ippity stamps.

And please, join us during the next week and give the sketch a try!  Remember, you can enter this with ANY image you want but you get 2 entries into the giveaway if you use ippity or Unity stamps!
