STAMPlorations Sketch #25 and New Bee's Knees Stamps

It's the first sketch of the new year at STAMPlorations.

I've tweaked it a little bit (who, me? Mrs Stretch-a-Sketch?) but you can see that all the elements from the sketch are represented.  I used the Rosebuds stamp and enhanced the image by adding a few dots on and around the buds.

Our guest designer for this sketch is the fabulous Kim from Art Keeps Me Sane.  Kim creates wonderful cards, especially with STAMPlorations stamps :).  Pop on over to the blog to see Kim's and the Design Team's inspiration for this sketch, and join in for your chance to win 3 fab digi stamps and a guest designer spot.
