SSSC70 - Elements of Style

It's Sunday and time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  Karen has got an awesome sketch for all of us to play with this week, I'm lovin the squares down the side on this sketch.  For my card today I used the new stamp set Elements of Style which is from the Summer Mini Catalog.  I stamped the large floral image in black ink on white card stock and decided to highlight three sections of the flowers by punching them out with my square punch and water coloring them and then added some Dazzling Diamonds. 

Supplies: Elements of Style, Ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Square punches, Large Oval punch, Scallop Oval punch, Ticket Corner punch, Piercer, Sponge, Pop dots.  Colors: Basic Black, Old Olive, Cameo Coral.
To play along create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then go to Karen’s blog The Sweetest Thing and link your card so we can all see your creation!

Thank you for being such a wonderful husband for the past eighteen years.
