Good morning, and Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well!! Today's card was made for two challenges: As You See It #269, which has a specific recipe to use--I got them all in!! haha!! and the Paper Players #580, which is a sketch. I needed a sketch to follow to make sure I got all the elements in from the recipe: Die cut or Punch, Embossing, Twine or Ribbon, Pastels and sentiment "thinking of you". Here it is:
The Balmy Blue layer is embossed using the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. for the next layer, I cut a scalloped rectangle out, then added polka dots using a stencil and my blending brushes. I used Balmy Blue, Highland Heather and So Saffron. The So Saffron layer was also cut out using a die cut, and I added polka dots to it, too. The sentiment was simply stamped and cut out using a die. All the dies used today were from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I added some printed vellum behind my white ribbon!
So, two challenges completed!!
Here are the products used today:
