Crafty Sentiments, Sketch Challenge #6, How Does Your Garden Grow?

Hello and welcome to another wonderful Crafty Sentiments Sketch challenge to get that creativity flowing! :) Come check it out at the CS Blog HERE.

This week's inspirational part of the challenge is to incorporate the color *Kraft* (or any color of a soft brown that closely matches kraft) into your projects. It is always a bonus if you use Crafty Sentiments stamps but any stamp will work!

***Enter for your chance to win this adorable stamp Prize***
Here is my take on this the sketch.

Stamps: Crafty Sentiments Valentine Collection "Teddy With Flowers"
Paper: SEI
Ink: Brown StazOn, Copics, SU White Signo Gel Pen, Sharpie Markers ->(used to color buttons to match DP & image colors)
Accessories: *Dress-It-Up* Gardening themed Buttons (loopy buttons backs were cut off to make these flat), MM Copper Brads, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug DOTS EF
Techniques: Paper Tole, Sewing (poorly done, but hey- its sewn! and that's huge for little 'ole me who's just learning sewing basics) heheh

NOTE: I had previously used this adorable image for a Valentine Card ->(below). It is not only an adorable image, but it is quite versatile for using in various themes/occasions. :)
