Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! Another cold one here, even spitting snow when I came to work this morning. Warmer temps are predicted for tomorrow tho!
Today's card was made for the sweet Sunday sketch challenge on Karen Giron's Blog The Sweetest Thing. I have said before that I love sketch challenges, and I found the link to this one on Nancy's blog. Here is Nancy's amazing card for the sketch.
After seeing Nancy's card I knew I had to give that sketch a try. I have been using this color combo alot lately and the paper from the Urban garden collection. I seem to keep reaching for it over and over.
I started the card out with a base of Night of Navy, followed by a layer of baja and then another layer of old olive cardstock. Followed that with a layer of DS paper,then with a 2 1/2 inch wide strip of another DS paper from the Urban Garden pack. I punched strips of Not quite navy out with my scallop edge punch and attached to each side of the strip.
The center sentiment is made with SU's "Wonderful Favorites" stamp set. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig for the placement of the "to my" and "friend". Punched out some stars with the large and small star punch and added them to the corners. I used some silver sticky rhinestones in the center of the stars and on the scallops. I added two strips of 1/4 inch old olive grosgrain ribbon down the panel. I experimented with adding some bows, knots and ribbon slides on the ribbon, but in the end decided not to add any.
I will be sending this out to one of my "wonderful" friends. I hope you all have some wonderful people in your lives, People who are there for you no matter what, if so, send them a card, make their day and let them know how much they mean to you. It will make your day too!
Well, that's all for now, hope you ave a great day and Happy Stamping!!!
