Stampin' Up Thankful Life Stamp Set ~ Sketch Happy

Hello Friends!

I have been playing with that sketch from my team's page again.  I love a good sketch challenge!  This time, I decided to make some cards with the Hostess Stamp Set from Stampin' Up Thankful Life.  I almost overlooked this set.  All 3 of the floral images line up perfectly!

I modified the sketch again slightly.

Here are my measurements:
Base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4, sweet sugarplum

Layer 2a (top): 4" square, chocolate chip
Layer 3a (top): 3 3/4" Square, shimmer white
Layer 2b (bottom): 4 x 1, chocolate chip
Layer 3b (bottom): 3 3/4" x 3/4", shimmer white
Rouched Ribbon, Sweet Sugarplum

The vase is Sweet Sugarplum, stamped off once on a scratch paper.  I stamped the highlight for the vase full strength.

Next, I stamped the vine piece in Soft Suede.  I stamped off the lightest flower using the Sweet Sugarplum ink pad (meaning i stamped it on scrap paper first to make the second stamp lighter, then added the final flower full strength.  So it's really only two colors, but I love the stamped off effect for the flowers.  

I made a few extras for current customers who have placed some surprise orders on my page (thank you for that!).
