FMS 25

Good morning, Friends! Are you ready for a great weekend? We are going to have fantastic spring like weather here! Nick starts his soccer season this afternoon! I am excited to see how the team will do! And don't forget to change your clocks! Oh and spring break has started, too! Wow! When Nick goes back to school, he will be starting the fourth quarter. I can't believe how time is just flying by!

Today's card was inspired by a sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. I used this card for my shoebox swap this month, too. And it is a really simple card! The colors are not my usual but I found an unopened spool of Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon and based my colors around that - lol! So I went with the colors in the Beau Chateau designer paper. My card base is Pink Pirouette with a strip of designer paper from the Attic Boutique pack. Then I stamped the tea cup from Tea Shoppe in Marina Mist onto Very Vanilla. I scalloped one end of that piece and tied a piece of Pink Pirouette taffeta ribbon around it. This is adhered to a piece of Marina Mist and then popped up onto the card. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of Very Vanilla in Soft Suede and punched it out with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I sponged the edges before adhering to the card. The last thing I did was to add some pearls to the tea cup. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
