A Sketch with Cheery Lynn Designs

When I am stumped for inspiration, I like to check out all the current challenges at Feline Playful.  I found this great In the Round sketch from The Sketch File and just knew it was meant for Cheery Lynn Designs dies.


I began with my Cheery Lynn Designs XL Circle Stackers Nesting dies to make the card base.  Using the coordinating Silver Stackers Nesting dies I die cut the dotted background piece.  Next came my favorite doily, English Tea Party to which I added a circle; die cut again with my XL Circle Stackers Nesting dies.  For the largest flower I die cut two Sunflowers popping it ups with dimensional foam.  For the smaller flowers I used my Darling Daisies dies.  The border is die cut using my Ribbon Eyelet border with piercing die  I added a piece of card stock to the center to make a faux ribbon.  The sentiment is from Sweet Stamps.  The DP is from the Graphic 45 Le Cirque collection.  Finished size is 5 5/8 inches.

Oh, and don't forget about the Design Team call over at Cheery Lynn Designs.  Here is a chance for you to join a great team.
