Sunday Sketches SS045 Banded Together

Sunday Sketches SS045 card created with sketch (2)

Each Sunday, I create a card using one of my card sketches. This week's sketch is number SS045.  Sketches can help to get your creativity fired up.  They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.

You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal. Let your imagination run wild!

Today's card features the Band Together stamp set along with the coordinating Detailed Bands Dies.  The gorgeous paper is from the Pressed Petals Specialty Paper which really does have to be seen in person to be appreciated.  

When I saw this stamp set I knew I wanted it but I keep telling myself I have enough flowers.  Really?  Can you have too many?  I think not!  So you can see I bought it along with the unique Detailed Bands, but buying the stamp set and coordinating dies you save 10% when you bundle.
