Just Us Girls #239 - Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!  My good friend Cheryl has created a great sketch for our Just Us Girls sketch challenge.
 

I knew as soon as I looked at the sketch that PTI's new Botanical Blocks set was going to work perfectly.  I just love sunflowers (see my blog design?) and fell in love with this sunflower.  I love how Nichole Heady colored hers when she revealed it, so I used the same copic colors she used. ( My BG72 copic marker ran out of ink before I could finish blending the colors!)  The horizontal piece was cut from a new die I purchased at JoAnn's.  It's from a new Spellbinder's line.  I added the sentiment and enamel dots to finish it off.
 
We have a new guest for this month.  Please welcome Barbara Campbell.  Stop by the DT blogs for more inspiration.
 

 
I'm also entering this in Crazy 4 Challenges.  Their challenge is called April showers bring May flowers and you have to use a flower on your card.

Thanks for stopping by!
