Flower Shoppe Tutorial + A Sketch

The Works on Wednesday continues!

I can't believe it, I am still getting it done!  Blogging at least once a week that is, and giving you all a little share of things.  I was not so sure about getting this one put together in time, but thanks to some help from my DH, I made it!!!  He took all the photos you will see in the video below!  Thank you baby cakes!!!

INSPIRATION: a card sketch (from the Bo Bunny blog and created by the super talented Gabi!)
WHY:  Sketches are always inspiring to me.  In fact,  I almost always use a sketch.  I usually draw one for every layout or card I make.  It just helps me figure out where I want things to go before I start cutting and gluing.

I had fun playing with this sketch and mixing up two different collections by Bo Bunny...Welcome Home and Enchanted.  I added some brown ink to the black and white pattern of the Enchanted paper to allow it to fit right in the with the Welcome Home color palette.  Besides sharing this great sketch, I also wanted to share how I created the flower on my card.  I used my Cricut and the Flower Shoppe cartridge to create it.  If you want to see how I made my flower, please check out the video below.  And if you have any questions, just ask!

I used a bunch of photos and created a slide show/movie.  Maybe some day I will have a way to make a real video!  Hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave me some feedback on what you think of it. I am still trying to figure out the best way to do these!

Thanks for stopping by!
