Heart Flower Anniversary - Sketch Frenzy Friday

Boy we went through a hot spell of weather didn't we?  Thank goodness a cold front moved in, gave us some rain and generally cooled things down to more normal levels.  It's supposed to rain all day today and frankly I'm okay with that.  My garden needs a good drink.

It's also June 1st - and the start of the new Catalogue season as well as the mini blog hop with Sketch Frenzy Friday.  I just got my catalogue yesterday, so I haven't ordered anything yet, but I did preorder the Summer Smooches paper, from which I made today's card.

The sketch today is by Sharon Wheet, and I must admit I struggled a bit with this one.  Hope you like what I finally did with it.  I'll post the sketch after my card:

Very cool! I love how the modern design of the flower merges with the "old fashioned" patterns in your papers.
