Tuesday Morning Sketches #198 - The Greeting Farm!

Good morning & welcome to the newest Tuesday Morning Sketch - by me this week :) Anyone else have difficulty creating a card based on their own sketch? The sketch came quickly, but the card took some time. This week we're sponsored by the lovely Greeting Farm (will edit later with prize details! Off to the dentist first...)
ETA: the awesome prize is one stamp of YOUR choice as the winner! WOOT!

This week is also TWIST WEEK, which means that you MUST use the twist in order to win! This time around the twist is Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers. There are flowers on my patterned papers, on the washi tape, and for the main image :)

Supplies: papers from Memory Box; Jolee's vellum stickers; We R Memory Keepers washi tape; Labels 4 Nesties; 1" circle punch; Mrs. Grossman's sticker sentiment

The washi is layered over the patterned paper (on either side of the dark paper strip) and I like how it almost blends in to the pattern. 

Here's the sketch:




Don't forget to visit all the other talented ladies on the DT:


As I mentioned, we're off to the dentist this morning - both Rob & I are getting mouth guards made. Ah, the joys & mysteries of adult married life...not ;) I'm not looking forward to the molding process (gag!) but I cannot wait to have some relief from the jaw pain from grinding my teeth.

xoxo,
Jessi

Nighttime mouthguard-wearer here! Over 7 years now. My dentist insists that without it, my teeth would have been ground to nubs by now. Took a long time for me to get used to having an extra layer in my mouth at night (hard to fall asleep with it at first!), but once I got used to it, it was hard to sleep without it--and I paid for it in the morning (with achy teeth). And while sexy it is not, at least I'll have all my own teeth when I'm decrepit, right? That's gotta count as some kinda sexy in the retirement home. ;)

BTW, LOVE this gorgeous card--those vellum stickers and pretty blues and purples make my heart happy!
