Vintage Vogue Thank You - Sketch Frenzy Friday

Well, it looks like spring is finally here and I have been spending a lot of time in my garden.  My healing knee is slowing me down somewhat and this is a source of great frustration for me.  Thank goodness for my son who has been a tremendous help, doing all the heavy work.
I've also been getting ready for a craft show tomorrow - a show aimed at the last minute shoppers for Mother's Day.
Yes, it is Mother's Day on Sunday.  I hope that those of you who have important ladies in your lives have sent a card and/or present for this special day.
Talk about days creeping up on you - Fridays do that for me.  Today is Friday and time for another mini blog hop with Sketch Frenzy Friday.
This week's sketch is by moi (yes me), but before I show you the sketch I am going to show you the card.
Here it is:

 Here is the sketch:

 05/11/12 - Maria

The larger flowers were stamped with Island Indigo on Whisper White card stock and cut out; the smaller flowers were stamped with Baja breeze ink and also cut out.  Then 2 leaves were stamped for each flower using Lucky Limeade ink - and they were cut out.
To make the flower unit, the small flower was adhered to the larger flower using tombo glue.  Then an Everyday Enchantment brad (unforunately retired) was inserted in the middle.  Don't they make a nice pop of green?  Then 2 leaves were attached to the flower using tombo glue.
Each flower unit was adhered to a 1" Island Indigo circle and then adhered to the card.

Here is the recipe for the rest of the card:
Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Perfectly Penned
Inks: Island Indigo, Baja Breeze, Lucky Limeade
Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Twitterpated designer paper
Accessories: Large Oval punch, Blushing bride twitterpated pleated ribbon, Enchantment brads (retired), rhinestones

Now I'd love to see what you make using this sketch.  And don't forgot to upload it to the Sketch Frenzy Friday homepage here - then hop on over to the blogs of the other team members.
Your next stop on the tour is here to check out Patrice's creation.
Have fun on your tour ----and don't forget to leave comments.

Stay well, and I'll see you next week.
