And now on to our sketch challenge this week:

My Card:

I love, love, love Stampin' Up!'s new "Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die". What an awesome new product. For the sketch, I stamped all the flowers from the new "Petite Petals" stamp set cascading on my "Whisper White Cardstock" base using "Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand & Melon Mambo Ink":

I then glued the hexagon hive over the stamped flowers, centered on my card base. I stamped some more flowers on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out using the new "Petite Petals Punch" and glued them using Stampin' Dimensionals. Here are all the supplies I used:
  • Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso
  • Inks: Melon Mambo, Sahara Sand, Rich Razzleberry
  • Stamps: Petite Petals, Peachy Keen
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die, Modern Label Punch, Petite Petals Punch, Stampin' Dimesnionals
