Keesh Sketch 39 take two, and this makes 3 posts in one day!!!

Here is my 2nd play at Keesh's latest sketch challenge.

 I wanted to make a card that fit the sketch more closely. I decided to make the 'suede effect' flower on page 2 of the new catty. I went looking for my new 'Fancy Flower' punch but couldn't find it. Turns out that I didn't order it LOL. I must add it to my next order. I had to resort to a non-SU punch that I had. I 'sueded' some baja Breeze CS and punched out 3 flowers and put them together with one of the beautiful new Antique Brads (yummy), then cut some Pear Pizazz leaves using my Sizzlet die & Big Shot. The DSP is from the new set, "Greenhouse Gala' which I also love. I didn't have any thin Baja Breeze ribbon so popped some CS through my crimper. Finally the sentiment is from one of the new Level 3 hostess sets, "Occasional Quotes". One advantage of being a demo is that we can purchase some of the hostess sets that we are unlikely to otherwise be able to get.

I must admit, I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I have a friend with a b'day this Sunday (I know, there has been no end to birthdays for about 3 months!!!).

I really enjoyed playing with this sketch, and hope to have the time to keep doing them.
Thanks for popping by,

Had a giggle about the Fancy Flower Punch. I was exactly the same with MY "Just Believe" stamp set. Went to stamp with it ... and realised that I hadn't ordered it! Just too much on our wish lists, Fi!!! But ... I have now sent another order ... and am waiting for this set to arrive! Just couldn't resist! Hugs Andrea xxx

Wow - 2 cards for one challenge - great work! This is a beautiful, subtle card - I'm always a sucker for complimentary colour schemes. I love how the flower turned out - and like many others, have an extra long wish list at the moment.
