Freshly Made Sketches #40

Good morning! I hope that yesterday was the last day of the heat for a while although, it’s 80 degrees out now. When I got in my car yesterday at 5:00pm the temperature gage said it was 101 degrees! Now, that is way too hot! However, I was in the car at 10:00pm with the top down and it was gorgeous. I wanted to take a minute to say hello to a great friend of mine, Isabella. She is a wonderful person and I hope that she is having a nice time. ย Now, on to today’s post which is for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. Lesley has given us this to work with…

I don’t have an easy way to cut out an Oval so I decided to use the Labels Collection Framelits Dies. The stamped image is from the Just Believe Stamp Set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip. I used my Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Marker to define the edge ever so slightly. The top part of the background is a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock and the bottom is a piece of International Bazaar Designer Series Paper. I used a piece of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon to cover the seam between the two pieces of paper and then adhered it to the card base of Lucky Limeade. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and are stamped in Perfect Plum. I added some Basic Jewels Pearls to each one for the body and then adhered them to the label with Stampin’ DImensionals. I also added 3 more pearls to the top right corner. The greeting is also from the Just Believe Stamp Set and is stamped in Perfect Plum. I used the Paper-Piercing Tool and the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack just under the greeting and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals too. I love the Lucky Limeade and Chocolate Chip together and the unexpected addition of the Perfect Plum with the coordination between the Designer Series Paper and butterflies add that little something extra. Thank you so much for checking in with me and have a great FRIDAY!! ๐Ÿ™‚
