I finally have some time to scrapbook and love this older Sketch Savvy sketch

The image is in SCAL and I only have the basic Silhouette studio, so I can't cut it. Does anyone know if there is something in the Silhouette store like this? I've searched and can't find anything. I've tried altering a square to make a cut of my own, but I guess I'm not that knowledgeable with the Silhouette software, and I'm stuck.
Any help is very much appreciated!!

Sorry! I don't know what happened-the URL had been there:
Sketch Savvy #39

That should work!

Yup...I'm still here

You can just use the trace feature in the regular Studio program you have.

I just did it and it worked just fine.

Click left on the image of the flower.

Hit "Copy Image".

Then open up the Studio program.

Open up a blank page.

Click left and hit "Paste".

The picture of the petal will pop up.

Now just click on the trace button in Studio and select the trace area (the four petals) I selected the Low Pass and deselected the High Pass and then work the sliders till you get all the petals yellow. Then click trace. Remove the image. And you'll see your cut file underneath. Easy!

***edited*** ^^^ or what she said!

I went looking to see what I could find in shapes and there are 3 that are somewhat similar but not the exact thing.

1. shape #19426
2. shape #37170
3. shape #33666

I put the first one in my cart along with another 6 or so that I loved.

I'm an old pea with a forgetful memory (can't remember old login info)....please cut me some slack LOL!!!

You could also punch/cut a square and round two of the corners.
