thank you 30

 Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans? Today I'm joining along with this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge where the challenge is to create a project Mixing Floral stamp sets.
I stamped the background using a combination of floral images from the PTI Bloomin' Cute and the Beautiful Bloom stamp sets:
 Once I had the background stamped and die to to size, I embellished with stamped/die cut leaves and a decorative sprig from the Bloomin' Cute stamp set along with a die cut layered blossom on top:

For sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the Freshly Made Sketches challenge:
Up next, is a small 8" x 8 "oil painting featuring a couple of hibiscus:
I'm linking my painting to this week's Paint Party Friday and 30 days in 30 Day 21.
Many thanks for stopping by!

Be Sweet :)

Hello there!!! It's been awhile! I was planning to stop by yesterday and then got distracted! I love this design with the FM sketch! I started out with the sketch today but I did something wrong it turned out terrible. I will start again for tomorrow. I love that you stamped your background layers! The crocheted flower is so pretty layered among the leaves. Beautiful!!!!
