Tuesday with crochet flowers

Hi everyone! Its Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle challenge. This week is a product focus. The DT are all using these adorable little crocheted flowers made by Melody (ladyquilter on SCS) which are on pre-sale right now at the JBelle Store! Be sure to check them out AND Lindsey has stickles for 15% off and all the Memory Box items are 30% off!!

On to the card, this card is also for this week's SCS CAS12 challenge -a sketch! I went with my new PTI cardstock -Hibiscus Burst, Rasberry Fizz (YUMMMMMY), and Vintage Cream to match my vanilla flower. I layered the flower with a Prima and Dew Drop. The other 5 are from SU punches and have alternating colored Dew Drops. The sentiment is from a cheapo clear stamp set. You know, the kind that you HAVE to use pigment ink in order to get a clear image? Fortunately (for reasons I can't fathom), I had this hot pink pigment ink! LOL!

This card is for a wonderful stamper friend, hopefully it gets to her on time!!

Here is a close up pic of the flower. It measures 1 1/2" across. Be sure to check out the other DT blogs for their crocheted goodness. We even have a special someone playing along this week: Michele Boyer (great name Michele!) her blog is Paper Cuts.
