Repeat Impressions - Sketch Challenge Mar 7

It's time for another Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge!  For this challenge I used the Beauty of Springtime sentiment stamp to go with my Authentique paper and flowers.  

After stamping it in purple ink, I cut it out with a die and while still in the die, I used a purple pen to do the interior outline.  Then, I used a marker to color in the border.  I layered it with foam tape on another matching die cut. 
For the flowers, I glued on the large white flower first then the pink flowers.  To make the coils I used the green wire I cut off the flowers. I wrapped it around my paper piercer and glued them inbetween the blooms.  The pearls were the finishing touch.  Finished size is 5 x 6.25.

You can find the details for this challenge on The House that Stamps Built.  You can also see the design team's sketch cards there.  A $25 gift certificate for Repeat Impressions merchandise is up for grabs, so be sure to play along!

Oh my gosh, Miriam - your floral arrangement is fabulous! The whole card is wonderful. What a great way to do the border around the sentiment.
