New Blooms and a Sketch

Yay! I finally got to play with some of Leah's gorgeous handmade flowers from Paper Blooms. I wanted to showcase just how lovely they are, so I used one as a focal point for this week's CAS sketch challenge. I added a stick pin, too (also available from Paper Blooms). Stop by and check out all the yummy colors and designs Leah has in her shop.

FYI: The Paper Blooms design team will be starting challenges this Wednesday. Be sure to stop by the Paper Blooms blog to find some beautiful inspiration. Of course, visit me, too, as I'll be showcasing more of these lovely flowers.

Paper: Bashful Blue
Accessories: flower (Paper Blooms), stick pin (Paper Blooms), ribbon (Dollar Tree), rub-on (SU)
