UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  I can't believe it's already the end of April!  Where is the time going?  This week flew by so fast.  Most likely because it was Spring Break for my kiddos.  It's back to school on Monday to get ready for final exams.   Just 29 school days left.  Wow!  Anyway,...

Here is today's sketch.  I just had to flip it.  Really, I had to.  ;)  I love how my card ended up today!   See that line down the center of Carol's sketch?  That became the center of my gate-fold card.  The base is Daffodil Delight which was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The panel is Melon Mambo topped with a piece of handmade DSP.  I used Flower Fest from the upcoming Summer Mini.  I stamped the different images in Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi.  Then I spritzed the piece with Tangerine Tango.  I used the Dotted Ribbon border punch with Melon Mambo cardstock.  The sentiment from Occasional Quotes (Hostess Level 3) is stamped in Melon Mambo on a piece of Whisper White.  I stamped a flower in Daffodil Delight in 2 corners and used the Melon Mambo marker to make some dots in the other 2 corners.  It's layered on a Tempting Turquoise mat.   It's so fun and bright!  It feels just like summer...just like the weather here!  ;)
Let me know if you like today's card, and then head on over to Leonie's.  We're all hooked up, but just in case there are missing or broken links, Carol has a list of all of us over on the UDI blog.
