Good morning everyone! Are you glad it's the weekend? We have the usual soccer game today and then baseball practice tomorrow but otherwise we are looking forward to possibly spending lots of time outside in this wonderful weather! Tomorrow it is supposed to get windy and then maybe get some rain? I hope we do get some rain. Just wait until after all the sports activities - lol! I did get quite a bit of stamping done this past week. That felt good! 

Today's card was inspired by a sketch at iSpy Sketches. This is quite a different look for me but I had fun with it! And it gave me a chance to use up some of that beautiful Sale-A-Bration products before they are discontinued! My card base is Very Vanilla. Then I took a piece of Everyday Enchantment designer paper and cut it at a diagonal. I mounted these onto pieces of Soft Suede that were cut the same way. These are adhered to the card base. Then I took a smaller piece of Very Vanilla and mounted it to a piece of Soft Suede. For my focal point I stamped a piece of Very Vanilla with the Fresh Vintage stamp set using Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade and Pool Party markers. Then I took it to the Big Shot and cut it out using my Labels framelits dies. I took the cut shape and sent it back through the Big Shot using the Designer Frames embossing folder (a fun technique I saw someone else use). This is popped up onto the Very Vanilla panel. Then I stamped the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Soft Suede onto a Very Vanilla strip and flagged one end. The other end is adhered behind the stamped image. I added two little strips of ribbon behind the Soft Suede Panel and popped this up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
