A Perfect Day for a Sketch

I made this card today for SCS's Sketch found HERE. As soon as I got my hands on the set Beauty Stems From Here (Inkadinkado), I knew these leaves would be fun to paper tole. They, along with the butterfly from the Patterned Birds & Bugs set (Inkadinkado), are colored with copics and popped up with dimensional tape. I added a touch of glitter too. The sentiment is from the Elisabeth Bell Accessories and Sentiments Collection.

The images can all be found at Stamper's Dream.

I just have to have the stamp set "Beauty Stems"! and I love how you made "How to Train a Husband". I may just have to "borrow" that one from you.

Have a happy stamping day and a Happy April Fool's Day!

This is gorgeous! I looked at the set and I love it, like all Inka stamps, but your amazing card is a testament to how awesome a stamper you are. Those leaves look like they could just grow right out of your card!
