It is my favorite day of the week, because we have the DOstamping Stars Thursday Challenges. It is a way to get me to dig into something different! I do have to say that the Sketch Pad is my favorite challenge. Does anyone else notice that sometimes you have a tendency to go to the same layout for most of your cards. I know I surely do so by having a sketch to go by makes me brake out of that typical pattern.
So onto my card for this week!
Supplies: Stamp Set: Happy Greetings(Summer Mini) ; Cardstock: Naturals Ivory, Poppy Parade, Basic Black; Ink: Poppy Parade, Concord Crush(both Stampin' Write Markers); Accessories: 1/2" Concord Crush Stitched-Poly Ribbon, Neutral Brads, Lattice Emboss Folder
I decided to rotate the card for this sketch! I have a couple of graduations that I needed cards for so that is why I turned to this greeting from the set Happy Greetings that is currently in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalog. Are you wondering "how did she get the center word in a different color?" Well, I use my Stampin' Write Markers to ink the stamp so I can change the color on different or key words. Isn't that the greatest! I also thought that there needed to be a little more than just the greeting so added this cute little punch art grad hat, and on the background piece I added texture to the background piece with the Lattice Emboss Folder for the Big Shot! I really like how this card turned out.
