Go To Sketches

Seems that I have been doing more crafting than blogging lately. The balance can be such a challenge, don't 'ya think? 
I have two cards again today, both inspired by Papercraft's Go To Sketches.  I noticed that the book states that it is "Volume 1."  If this is the first in a series I would be over the moon! 
I couldn't get the photo that I really wanted for this card, but I absolutely love it.  So many of my favorite goodies - Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon papers, Papertrey Ink cardstock, stamps and buttons. There's nothing better.  The stamp is from a PTI May release - Take Three: Summer.  The flower is absolutely beautiful and stamps like a dream. 
I have had this paper from American Crafts sitting on my desk for some time, waiting for just the right project to call its name.  Yesterday's warm, humid weather made me realize that spring is gone and that summer is here!  I wanted to do something that really speaks to my favorite part of summer - flowers!  I used Papertrey Ink's cardstock, stamps and buttons, Nestabilities and a Marvy flower punch.  This card is going to someone that recently gave me something unique and very special. 
Thanks for looking, and have a great summer day!
