Sketch Saturday #139: Love in a Bucket

Whimsy Stamps 'Love in a Bucket' and 'Friendship Ticket' stamps ~ Cosmo Cricket DeLovely 6x6 paper pad ~ Core'dinations VB020 Montego Bay & PP030 Fuschia Fizz cardstock ~ Wild Orchid Crafts flowers ~ flatback pearls & gems ~ satin ribbon ~ Martha Stewart border punch ~ Spellbinders circle nestabilities dies

Happy weekend!!

Today I have my Sketch Saturday DT make to share.  We have another wonderful sketch from Jo and this week we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps :

I'm a bit disappointed with my photography skills for this card, as the green looks really blue!!  If you have the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely pad, then you will know how the colours should look.  It looks as though my ribbon and cardstock don't match, but I promise you they do!!  Also the pinkWOC flowers look more orange than they are IRL!  Never mind - hopefully the colours will look correct on your PC monitor!!

Okay, moan over, LOL!  I pulled out one of the gorgeous new rubber releases from Whimsy Stamps - Love in a Bucket.  Aren't these too the cutest? Aw! I also used one of the new ticket sentiments too - Friendship Ticket Sentiments - stamping it twice and using as 'tags'.

Finally, I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
