Hunting in the Wind

I decided to play along with Sketchy Thursdays this week and did a double dose of the sketch.  I actually did the sketch for both sides of a double page layout - I just flipped it a bit and switched up the papers to add some contrast.
All of the paper in the layout comes from the Cheerful Treat hostess packet of paper in Stampin' Up's new catalogue.  I loved the bright and happy colors for these Easter pictures. 
Here you can see how I switched up the sketch and the papers a bit. I also changed the stamped flower to Lucky Limeade with Melon Mambo sponged around the edges.
Here's a closeup of one of those flowers from the Creative Elements stamp set.  Practical Scrappers had a challenge to create your own flowers, to do this, I actually stamped it three times and then cut around the edges to make it more three dimensional.  I cut all the way to the outside, then one layer inside, then all the way to the inside layer if that makes sense.  After that, I took a sponge dauber and sponged some Melon Mambo around the edges.  I added a stampin' dimensional under each layer to pop it up some, also.
