Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #619


Welcome to my blog, where I have
a new card
to share with you each week for
Tuesday Morning Sketches 
Here is this week's sketch:
At first sight, my flower dies and stamps started running through my mind.  And then I started seeing balloons on strings.  Shooting stars and rockets made a mental appearance.
The mere thought of snowflakes on this hot day was what I decided upon.  As I leafed through my winter stamps, this CTMH holly branch stamp caught my eye.  And I still managed a bit of snow using a SU embossing folder and crystal effects along the branches.  The cardinal stickers and red bling are from my stash.  And the sentiment is a CTMH stamp.
Here's my card:
How will this sketch inspire you?

I hope you'll have time to play along at
this week.
