Boy have I been tired lately! I’m not usually but ever since daylight savings I have been unusually tired. Don’t know what that’s about, hopefully it will pass soon! Work was nice today, for lunch Robin and I had Chinese. I had General Tso’s Chicken, quite tasty! Little Daniel was at my parent’s house, always a highlight to my week. We had to spend some time opening and closing the microwave door and then turning the hall light on and off. He is so easily amused! I came home and spent some time Skyping with Andrea and Eva while I worked on some projects. Tonight night is the Control Freaks Blog Tour, so be sure and come back for that!
My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I want to thank Kim for choosing me as her Prince in last week’s challenge. You can see the winners post HERE and my original post HERE. Now on to this week’s sketch…
Believe it or not this card started out by me thinking that I wanted to use the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper! The card base for today is Whisper White Card Stock and the background is a piece of Hello Honey that I embossed with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I used the On Film Framelits to cut out a piece of Basic Black and adhered a piece of the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper behind it. Some Tangelo Twist is cut out with two of the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. The banner is cut in half and adhered to the card and the slide is adhered on top of that with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The for you is also cut out from Tangelo Twist and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensional pieces to the slide. My butterfly is from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I used my Tangelo Twist and Hello Honey Stampin’ Write Markers to color on the back and adhered it to the slide with another piece of Stampin’ Dimensional. A few Doodlebug and Pretty Pink Posh Sequins are scattered around and that’s finishes the card! I really do like that Adventure Bound DSP a lot, yes, I know, I have said that many times before so you know it’s true! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you so much for your visit today! Have an absolutely awesome Thursday! 🙂
