to a wonderful friend...

Hello friends... our fabulous warm, sunny weather continues... YAY!  Yesterday was my kind of perfect summer day:  sunny and not too hot.   Have a card that I made for several challenges:  Dynamic Duos, CAS(E) this Sketch and Case Study


The Dynamic Duo's color combo this week is Sahara Sand and Pink Pirouette... a soft and pretty combo absolutely perfect for the sketch this week at CTS.   I pulled out several MFT dies and one of my favorite MFT sets, Pretty Poppies, and got to work.  I inked up the script border image from the set using Hero Art's Wet Cement ink and then lightly stamped it on my cardstock.   The frame die cut was created using two of the smaller Designer Labels 3 Stax.  Because of the way the MFT dies come I had to first cut the large image and then cut out the center of the image.   The fishtail flag was die cut and stamped with a sentiment from Pretty Poppies also using wet cement and then adhered to the frame.  The flower was die cut using the Poppies & Leaves die set and then stamped with the corresponding flower image from Pretty Poppies.  A sparkly pink button and rhinestone embellishment was added to the flower and then the piece was adhered to the frame.  The entire piece was adhered to a Sahara Sand card base.   The similarities between this week's Case Study challenge and the sketch from CTS I decided that I would pop this into Case Study, as well.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Sahara Sand; Inks:  Hero Arts:  Wet Cement & SU! Pink Pirouette; Stamps:  MFT Pretty Poppies; Dies:  MFT Poppies & Leaves, Fishtail Flag Stax & Designer Labels 3 dies; Button:  PTI; Rhinestone:  Want2Scrap

Love how soft this card is. It's funny but it somehow still has a pow to it even being so soft. Great take on the sketch!
