Ok, I've updated this to show you were I got the instructions on how to make the sweet peas.  The link is at the bottom where I have all my card's info.

Welcome to Sunday.  That means it's time for another Red Hot Stampers' sketch challenge.  Today's card has flowers on it that I've wanted to make for a while, but never took the time to do.  I actually have sweet peas that climb one side of the fence of our dog pen in the back yard and they look so pretty in the summer when the flowers are blooming.

Check out some other cards made with this sketch here.  If you're game why not make up a card yourself for the challenge. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Card Stock:  Wisteria Wonder, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi,
Bashful Blue, Perfect Plum & Whisper White
Classic Stampin' Pads:  Rose Red, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, 
Marina Mist, Perfect Plum & Elegant Eggplant
Embossing Folder:  Perfect Polka Dots
Punches:  Butterfly, Boho Blossoms ( used one similar to a star) & Bird (used wing)
Ribbon:  5/8" Organza in Whisper White

Click here for the link to the tutorial that I watched to make my flowers...thanks to Maria!  I used the Boho Blossom punch for the bottom of each flower and cut out two sections of it and folded it over.  I couldn't get the other punched piece to work.  Maria's looked so nice and mine did not! lol  Also, notice I used ink pads slightly darker than the card stock that I used.  Before I sprayed my "flowers" with water I sponged around all of the edges with the ink.  The ink really bleeds, so when the flowers end up drying they have bled some of the darker ink on the tips and into the flower a bit.  You can't see it in the picture, but it looks nice in person! :)
