Fellow Florida Stamper Sharon Field drew my attention recently to a wonderful Sketch site - Creative Sketches. One Sketch in particular became October's Sketch of the Month for our Florida Stampers Group. This A6 size card will be mailed to swap partner Sandy Meier.

My version uses ovals rather than rectangles.
It's actually my first try at a vintage style card. Then I couldn't find the right stamp for the centers of the small Nestabilities Ovals! The second stamp I ever purchased back in 1988 came to the rescue (another oldie-but-goodie crying out to be used!). If you've been stamping for 20 years, you'll remember that PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange) was the main stamp manufacturer in those days. This was their small botanical rose image. "Incredible" describes Sandy to a T. The image is part of an Anna Griffin set. (What ever happened to Anna?)
Flowers were colored with PrismaColor Pencils. The Labels One Grand dies, Ovals, and leaves were cut on my Grand Calibur (truly my favorite of all the die cut machines in my stash).
Thanks for visiting.
