Happy Monday to You! Have you visited Freshly Made Sketches this week and checked out the awesome sketch by Linda C.? No? Well, let me share it with you!
This sketch leaves a lot of room for interpretation which worked out well for me...I pondered this sketch all week and then suddenly, there it was!! So without further ado, here it is :)
Do you just LOVE it? The featured stamp set here is Million Dollar Moments, a hostess set from the Spring Catalog. I have loved this set from the minute I laid eyes on it but I have struggled with how to use it...
After trying many color combinations I settled on Sahara Sand and Wild Wasabi. I stamped the image on the card in Sahara Sand and then again in Wild Wasabi (on a separate sheet of cardstock), then snipped the boots and umbrella out and added them to the card with a bit of 2-Way Glue. I just LOVE how they pop!
I added the sentiment and the raining flowers in Wild Wasabi and then paper-pierced an oval around all the images using the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack available in the Spring Catalog. The finishing touch was some 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon in Wild Wasabi. After the card was done I decided it needed something in the upper left hand corner to balance out all I had going on over on the lower right hand corner and two 3/8" Brights Glimmer Brads fit the bill perfectly! Of course, they are actually Old Olive rather than Wild Wasabi, but if you won't tell, I won't either!
Here's a close up of all the little details...hope you have enjoyed this little card!
