2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown

I love to play along with 2 Sketches 4 You sketches whenever I can and so with their big CARD SHOWDOWN, I had to give that sketch a try too. This is Laura's Sketch #27.
I had to use one of the newest papers in my stash, this great yellow patterned paper by Pebbles, Inc.
And, to show off my absolute latest purchase, I created the flower with a Sizzix flower die. This die cuts four sizes of this flower design. I used two colors and three of the sizes but first I embossed the white and the golden yellow Core'dinations cardstocks with the Swiss Dot embossing plate.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
