Paper Craft Crew 81

Well, the snow turned out to be not that big of a deal yesterday! We got about an inch and then it turned to rain. I was never so happy to see rain in all my life! LOL! Things are gearing up at work again. My one day reprieve is over! Last night was a nice relaxing evening. Andrew came over, we ran some errands, had some wine and wings and listened to some music. Not bad for a Tuesday night!

The best thing about Wednesday is that it means we’re halfway through the week. The next best thing is that it means it’s time for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge…


I mixed up a few of the elements but still stayed pretty true to the sketch. My card starts off with a base of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock and the background is a piece of Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack.The panel in the middle is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar. My three flowers are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are stamped in Real Red and cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies. The butterfly is from the Nature’s Hello Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and cut out with the Backyard Basics Framelits Dies. On the lower left is a piece of Real Red that was cut out with the Banners Framelits Dies and on top of that I stamped one of the stamps from the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set in Baked Brown Sugar and punched it out with the Mosaic Punch. The flowers, butterfly and mosaic are all adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the versatility of the Fresh Prints Designer Series Paper Stack, it goes quite well with the Mosaic Madness Stamp Set, and so many other things, too! And that’s my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s sketch challenge! Check out the blog to see what the other design team members have done with the sketch, and enter your card in the gallery so we can see your spin on it. As always, I hope you enjoyed my card and thanks so much for stopping by! 🙂
