Paper Roses

I just loved this image from Digi Stamp Characters. They are sponsoring my Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog with a prize. Heather's images are so sweet and fun. There are alot to choose from. As most of you know by now I love to wear hats. So when I see a cute image like this with a hat I have to have it. You will want to be sure and check out Digi Stamp Characters.

This image was so much fun to work with. I imagined having paper roses were the roses were on the hat. It was so fun making the small paper roses. I used the small scallop circle punch from Stampin Up to make the roses.

As I loaded my card for my post I realized I never added my sentiment. Which is a no no by my Dt rules. Always follow my sketch to a tee! So I definitely will need to add it. I am on the mend from being really sick. So I apologize for not sticking to my rules.

And here is my fixed version with the sentiment

I hope you enjoyed seeing my paper Roses and there's lots more inspiration over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Hope you have a sweet day!!!
