Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #61

WOW guys... I can't even begin to tell you, how exciting it was to see so many takes on my sketch again. You truly set my heart a flutter! Even though I do it because I love drawing sketches and sharing them, and I expect nothing in return, I feel very special to see that you enjoy these. LOVE it.
Keep them coming!!

Today I challenged myself to 'go horizontal'. If you're a frequent visitor, you know how much I love vertical cards; I could do hundreds more and be happy to make them all stand tall :)
I'm not sure how this craze started, but I do admit to having a bit of a horizontal-card-phobia... so here goes fighting the damn thing! lol

As you can see on my sample below, the sentiment treatment is totally up to you. I dressed it up on the sketch, to give you a hint of how else you can do it, but surely if you want to simplify it and use just a single sentiment block, go ahead.
It's one of these universal sketches that work well with a multitude of stamps and themes. Don't forget that the florals are also not required!

It's a thoroughly Hero Arts card... I used my favourite Dogwood stamp, along with the Dots and Flowers background and the sentiment from Year Round Sentiments.
The pattern was stamped in Old Paper Distress Ink, and the dogwoods once in Memento Bamboo Leaves directly on the layer, and once on a white card. Then I coloured the blooms with Copics, cut them out, curved the edges and mounted over the layer.

A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- If you upload your card to an online gallery, use the code SSC61.
- Feel free to share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every Saturday, but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
