Sketch For You To Try

Good afternoon! I'm still obsessed with my new October Afternoon dp, and this dp is all from the Fly a Kite line. Love these colors!!!

I decided to play along with Jen's Sketch for You to Try this week. I stared at it for a while on Sunday, thought to myself, "No way! Too many layers!" and then decided to tackle it anyway, lol. I eliminated one layer by adding a ribbon and bow. I just couldn't get flowers to work along the side of my sentiment. I added some Taylor's Tiny Twinkles alone the apron lace punch and in the corners of this Verve sentiment.

I think I'm just going to declare it Verve week here on the blog. I'm still bummed I missed all of the Verve release fun! Although, I was off having a very different kind of fun with the best of friends. So I guess I can't complain too much. :)

It has been so delightfully cool here in So Cal today! At noon it was still 66 degrees outside! Love it! I've had all the windows and doors open to let the fresh air in. I love June Gloom. It keeps things cooler during the day. All too soon it will be gone and hotter than stink the moment the sun comes up. It always seems to happen around the 4th of July.... *sigh*

My stamping buddy, Angie, is on her way over here today to drop off some supplies I ordered through her! Yay! My white cardstock is on the dangerously low side.... as are my dimensionals. And we always have fun showing off what we've created since the last time we saw each other. She's been branching into a wedding card/special orders business, and I'm still a hobbiest, lol. I love seeing the elegant creations she whips up for weddings! I'm always in awe.

Well, thanks for stopping by! I might squeeze in one more card before Angie gets here. :)

  2. Gorgeous! Love the colors and the nice, clean lines!

  3. LOVE that OA paper!!!! I have mine right beside the computer in a special place :) It's so fabulous!!!! You rocked these layers!! LOL I love how you stamped the sentiment in a colour rather than black or brown...it really softens it and sets the tone for the card :D Ah, the summer begins!!! I've started playing with my own colour challenge that I made up for the PTI blog hop :) I pulled another 4 colours and they are a bit more "wild" LOL Will do something with them soon and post it :D

  4. Great card and use of the sketch! Beautifully mixed DPs and I just love that sentiment. We are cool and not so nice up here too. Spring came during the Olympics (Feburary) and we are hoping for summer now that school is out :D

    I'm falling asleep as I type this because of Jamie and Claire LOL! Need to go take a short nap so I can read again tonite LOL!

  5. Beautifully elegant! Wonderful sentiment and darling bow!
