It's Saturday and time for another fun JUGS challenge. Today the fabulous Kirsten is our hostess and she came up with this fabulous sketch:

SO here is my take on the sketch:

I'm really happy with this card but I do hope the "sketch police" does not come after me or Kristen since it was her sketch! LOL! I decided to be a rebel and us scallops on the bottom but not the 3 like in the sketch. I'm usually the one who follows sketches perfectly and never bends the rules. This time I'll admit I had issues with getting those nice shapes so I opted for my scallop border punch. SO, overlooking that I think this came out pretty nice. Do you think the jail for sketch offenders is nice? Anyhoo.. I used the new Gina K Stamp TV set called Spring Mix. It's huge with awesome images, ribbon and paper. The ribbon I used is from the kit. I used GKD card stock Lovely Lavender and Vibrant Violet. My pattern paper is from new Basic Grey called Kioshi Paper. To achieve the colors in the solid floral stamp I used Memento Dew Drops.

So today is the last challenge that our lovely and fabulous Tracey Cuccia will be with us on Jugs. Tracey is moving on and we wish her well. Tracey is a fabulous designer and will be missed. But I know she will pop in to play when she can. Big Hugs Tracey!!
Be sure to visit the JUGS DT gals as I know they will have lots of fabulous stuff for you to check out.

Well, I'm on the sketch police patrol and I'm going to go lightly on you only because I'm in a good mood with beautiful weather here! But next time......!!! Maria, this is so pretty! I love the scalloped border and the colors are fab, as is the image you chose! Love that Kioshi paper, too (did you notice it on mine?)! Great job with the sketch!

*lights and sirens* "you are under arrest" lol. The sketch police - you're too funny Maria. I ♥ the way this turned out - that focal image is beautiful too, I'll have to go check it out.
