Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge #17

Happy Thanksgiving! Today is the day that we stuff ourselves while spending some much needed quality time with family and friends. I love any holiday because it means that there is no work! LOL! I have a 4 day weekend so I’m going to make my holiday cards and get them ready to be sent out. I hope that you enjoyed the Control Freaks Blog Tour yesterday! Thank you all so much for stopping by and for all your comments! You guys rock!

My post today is for my Paper Craft Crew Design Team card for this week’s challenge. This week we have this sketch to get creative with…

I poked through my Designer Series Paper and settled on some Be of Good Cheer. I like this particular print because it has quite a few colors in it. The base of my card is Primrose Petals Card Stock. The background is the piece of Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper that I mentioned. It has Primrose Petals, Cherry Cobbler, Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery and some Gumball Green. I put a piece of Gumball Green Stitched Satin Ribbon on the left side adhered around the back with Sticky Strip. Then I embossed a piece of Certainly Celery with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the middle square. The ornaments are from the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set and are stamped in Primrose Petals and Gumball Green. I punched them out with the Ornament Punch and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The two flagged pieces are Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi. I punched out a piece of Cherry Cobbler with the Boho Blossoms Punch and the greeting from the Delightful Decorations Stamp Set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler, with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. A Vintage Faceted Designer Button with a Basic Jewels Rhinestone in the middle is adhered to it with a Mini Glue Dot. I like the simplicity and softness of the card and I hope that you enjoyed it too. Thank you for joining me for my Design Team card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge and you for taking some time out of your busy day to visit. Have a fun and filling Thanksgiving!
