TSSC 209

Good morning everyone! What a beautiful day! The sun is shining and the skies look to be clear! It is still really chilly this morning but I think it is going to be very nice!! Nick has a little soccer thing he is doing this afternoon but other than that I am looking forward to just having a restful weekend! I got some stamping done yesterday and even got to work on my wool appliqué projects. My friend Becky and I have been taking classes. We have one more class next month to learn how to finish the entire project. So in the mean time I am working on some other projects, too. I really do like it!!

Today's card is one that I did for Mary Jo's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. I liked this layout! Something fun and different - well, at least different for me. I love how the circle highlights the scallop. My card base is Calypso Coral. Then I added a circle of Early Espresso that I cut using the 3" circle die. Then I ran a piece of Wisteria Wonder card stock through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder and tied a piece of Early Espresso narrow taffeta ribbon around it before adhering it to the card. I used the Perfect Pennants die and a piece of Calypso Coral card stock to cut a scallop circle. This is popped up on the card. Then I punched a piece of Whisper White with the 2 1/2" circle punch and stamped the flower from Sprinkled Expressions in Wisteria Wonder and the greeting (also from the same set) in Early Espresso. I popped this up on the card. Then I added a few finishing touches. I punched a flower from Calypso Coral with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and added a few rhinestones. A pretty simple card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
