Ippity Sketch Challenge

Hello {ippity} friends!  It's week two of the  {ippity} sketch challenge  and  I was so excited when I saw this weeks sketch because it gave me the opportunity to make another shaped card.  Here is this weeks sketch,

and here is the card I created.

Isn't this a great sketch?  I began by pulling  out my old Sizzix oval die to make the oval card base.   I then used papers from Glitz Design for  the rest of the card. Three Ippity stamps sets were used on this card;  Friends + Flowers = Priceless was used for the flowers,  New Season New Wonder was used for the distressed sentiment and  My True Joy was used for the flourish.  I also added a second photo of the card to show the dimension of the flower.  To add dimension, I simply rubbed the back of the flowers with my Empressor  and as I rubbed, the  petals turned upward.  I then turned the flowers over and added pop dots for dimension.  

 Please check back on Saturday, the 15th for the Christmas in October Blog Hop using {ippity} Stamps.  I'm sure there will be a lot of wonderful ideas and inspiration to get you started on your holiday cards. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
