WSC Friend Tag

Good Saturday Morning Peeps! It is still raining here today, and more called for tomorrow and according to the 7 day outlook on the weather channel, a little more next week! What can you do? It is out of our control.

My card today is bright even if it isn't here! I really do love these colors together. The DS paper is Washington Apple, that pack is almost gone, I have used it alot.

I used Beate"s weekend sketch challenge, hosted this week by Jen Balcer.

I started with a base of riding hood red. The card is a large one, 5 /14 inch square. I followed with some pumpkin pie cardstock and then the DS paper. When I saw the sketch, I thought of making a removable tag for the center element, maybe like a small bookmark, having it just tuck inside that bottom stip. So I set out to make one. I used my favorite stamp from the All Holiday set, I just love that sentiment. I used a jumbo brad and some riding hood red ribbon, then I promptly glue it down onto my card, so much for removeable!!!!!!!!!

I added some stars and pumpkin corduroy brads and finally some pumpkin flower brads. If only I hadn't glued down my tag!!!

Well, that is all for today, hope you all have a great weekend, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
