'sweet sketch wednesday ~ 113

hiya chickies! well..it's been a couple of weeks since i posted. we've been travelling...been out enjoying the beautiful sunshine...and just plain ol enjoy the summer camping!
ah... therefore...my lack of scrappin.
 i popped on over to sweet sketch wednesday and just had to do their sketch...and what a yummy sketch it is...ok..i did follow it...but, flipped it...and then decided to add some flowers at the last minute...so...the design is there..it's just covered up a lil! you can't see it too well ...but..each layer is placed on with popdots to give a 3D effect.  hope you pop on over and take a try at the sketch!

couple of b-day cards from me...hope she likes them!
