A Get Well SFYTT ~

** This is my 3rd post for today.  Please scroll down for the Perfect Presentation release and further for the Sketch Girl 13 creation **
I just had to squeak in for the challenge over at the i{heart}2stamp blog for the sketch for you to try.  I chose this sketch from the week of Valentine's Day. 
Have you seen the prize package???  Tons of stamps and things from all kinds of companies.  It's funny...when I first got into blogging, I participated in every week of Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT).  I don't think I've played along in over a year!  Jen has some fabulous sketches, but I find I play along with a ton of other challenge blogs now. 
This is the card that was supposed to accompany the Perfect Presentation Treat Box from the post below. 
Sorry the color is super wonky!  We have a terribly overcast day, so natural light is just not working for me.  I can never seem to get a good pic of Spring Moss anyway.  I colored and cut out another violet and mounted it on thin foam tape.  The center of the violet has a few dots of lemon Liquid Pearls.  The first mat is Plum Pudding stamped with a Tin Types background in VersaMark.  The circle piece is from the Pretty Pastels paper pack.  The sentiment is from Big and Bold Wishes, stamped in Versafine Onyx black and embossed with filigree clear embossing powder.  A few black pearls finish off the front. 
{This is where the colors get really wonky!}  The inside sentiment just needed a little umph, so I carried a few of the sketch elements inside to make it a bit more interesting.  This is also a bit blurry, sorry!  I'm using my husband's camera and can't figure out how to turn on the macro setting...grumble.  The inside sentiment says *GET WELL HUGS & WISHES*
Anyhow, here is the originally planned set together.  After posting the Treat Box, I decided I really needed something on the lid's front panel.  I cut out two small pieces of Spring Moss with the Spellbinders Labels 9 and pieced them together.  The sentiment is on a small Petite Oval nestabilitie.  I stamped the small leaf from the Violet set in Spring Moss and stamped *FEEL better* from Mixed Messages in Versafine Onyx black ink.
I think I may have to come back and post new pictures once we have some better light.  I think you can get the gist though!  Thank you so much for stopping by!!  Have a great Sunday evening! :o) lyss

All supplies are Papertrey Ink unless previously noted in post.  Copic colors are 110 Special Black, V95, V99, Y15, YG91, YG93, YG95

Love the set together like this! I'm so tempted by those flowers, and if I look at this project long enough, you may just push me over the edge. Very nicely done. Spring Moss is always hard for me to get pictures of, too, so you're not alone ;)

Beautiful project! The colors are gorgeous and make me think of Spring. The inside of the card is just as wonderful as the front, and to top it all off, there's a treat box, too? Amazing!
