Thinking of You / ESS Sketch #52

Tracy Clemente for Eat, Sleep, Stamp is celebrating a great milestone, a YEAR of weekly sketches! That is an awesome achievement; shows just how creative she is and I appreciate her sharing that creativity with the rest of us. I really enjoy her "keep it simple", clean style that she mixes with great colors, CUTE images and creative accents. She keeps it FUN and I look forward to her ESS Sketch every week! :)

And as part of her celebration, Tracy is offering a yummy oh so generous prize! If we get 52 participants to this sketch challenge, she is offereing a $52.00 spending spree to one of the following: All That Scraps, A Muse, The Cat's Pajamas, Stamping Bella, Memory Box, My Favorite Things OR Taylored Expressions. Not only is this very generous, but a great incentive... so if you would like to play along, check out her ESS Sketch #52 blog post. You have until next Wed, 9/23!

This is my take on the sketch:

The ESS Sketch #52 features a CIRCLE :) as the accent, how FUN is that? Immediately, my first thought was to keep it simple.

This Hero Arts owl image with the heart and swirls is ADORABLE... I used the colors from DCWV The Green Stack; really like the combination. The whimsical flower of the pattern paper matches this whimsical owl image. I used my cricut to cut an asymmetrical flower-like frame to match the flower in the pattern paper. Adding that Martha Stewart butterfly punch was a FUN touch that adds more dimension to the printed flower: )

Great time making this card; very relaxing :) - Thanks for stopping by!
