"Smile" Laura's sketch 20 at 2s4y

Here is my card for Laura’s sketch this week at 2sketches4you. I saw this sketch and struggled for ideas for it. I sat down in my scrapping room today and started a card for my niece when all of a sudden, I had an idea for this card and this is how it ended up. I couldn’t cut off the top of the flower to match the sketch better, so it hangs off the top. I chalked the background of the white cardstock base with my Stampin’ Up! chalks and a template that I picked up ages ago (it makes the look of clouds), but I didn’t know how to use it until I caught a re-run of a scrapbooking show a few months back and I wanted to try it out and I really like how it ended up. It kind of reminds me of a picnic (with the red and white gingham ribbon) and I am so ready for summer to get here.

Cardstock and chalk: Stampin’ Up!
Ribbon: Michael's
Flower: Prima
Brad: Imaginesence
Cricut Expressions and Walk in my Garden cartridge
Leave it to weaver punch from Fiskars

I am hoping to sneak into my scrapping room tonight after the kids go to bed because I really love the sketch over at CPS and I know what I want to do with it and I want to get a card completed tonight.
