Sweet Sunday on Vacation

Good Sunday Morning Peeps!!!

The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and Sweet Sunday Stampers are taking the week off, so instead I have another fun little card to share with you today!

I saw the idea for this card on Lynn Pratt's blog. Isn't it a fun design! The top note is what you open on the card. The base is a single sheet, not folded piece of Crumb Cake and then a layer of old olive. I pierced all around the old olive piece with my piercing tool and mat pack. I cut two top notes with crumb cake card stock. On the top one I used the fun little Hostess set Apple Blossoms. I stamped the leaf image with real red, so saffron, tempting turquoise and old olive ink at varying heights. The sentiment comes from the same set. I scored the top note at approx. 1/4 inch from the top and folded it ovre the old olive piece and used some sticky tape to hold it in place.

With the second top note, I cut off about a 1/4 inch and lined it up with the top one and glued to the old olive. I like having the inside top note to match the front, for writing a personal note, or whatever, I just think it finishes it off nicely. I added some so saffron grosgrain ribbon across the bottom and then glued the old olive to the crumb cake piece.

Well, that is all from me today, head on over to Lynn's blog and give this card a try, she is giving away a free tutorial to the winner.
