SSSC 156

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is going by just super! Nick had a baseball game last night and while they lost, I thought they played pretty good! They were hitting and getting around the bases and their defense was on target, too. But then we just kind of stalled. While our defense was still strong, the bats just weren't connecting and the other team hit quite a few out of the park home runs. Kind of reminded me of the way the Rockies have been playing lately - lol! It was fun and I am excited to watch a little baseball!

Today's card was inspired by a sketch from Karen Giron. This is one of her older sketches. I did leave off a few elements but this is what worked for me. I flagged three strips of designer paper from the Pocketful of Posies pack and adhered them to a piece of Soft Suede designer paper that is adhered to a piece of Soft Suede card stock. This panel is popped up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. For my tag, I cut a piece of Naturals White card stock and put the top end into the 2 1/2" circle punch to round the top. I stamped the image from Lean on Me in black StazOn and used my blender pens and ink pads to watercolor the image. Then I added some Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon to the back and a button with some white baker's twine to the front. I popped this up onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
