Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a super great Fourth and a fantastic weekend! I am back from my trip to see my family in Kansas! We got back last night with time to unpack and unwind a little from the long drive. We had SO much fun setting off firecrackers - well, Nick did! This is almost as fun as Christmas for him! And the fireworks show was a huge hit! We even had people stop along the road to watch! We really know how to do it - lol!! Now it's back to the regularly scheduled events of the week. Nick has a haircut and I need to go grocery shopping.

Today's card was one I did for a recent swap. I used the sketch at Paper Craft Crew Challenges to help me with the layout and the Color Coach helped me pick out some different colors. And I do like the way this turned out! The sketch is from a while back but it is a fun one! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Summer Starfruit
  • Layer of Summer Starfruit
  • Layer of Smoky Slate that was run through the Big Shot using Modern Mosaic TIEF then adhered to Summer Starfruit layer
  • Tie Summer Starfruit stitched satin ribbon around this and pop up onto card base
  • Cut a strip of Elegant Eggplant and a strip of Summer Starfruit card stock and flag bottoms of both then adhere to card
  • Use 3" die to cut circle from Whisper White and then trim some off the top
  • Stamp border image from Mosaic Madness in Summer Starfruit and sentiment from Petite Pairs in Smoky Slate
  • Adhere circle to card by tucking the top part up under the ribbon
  • Stamp mosaic image in Smoky Slate onto a scrap of Whisper White, punch out with mosaic punch and pop up onto card
  • Stamp small mosaic image in Elegant Eggplant onto a scrap of Whisper White, cut out and adhere to first mosaic image
  • Add a rhinestone to center
And there you have it! Thanks for stopping by and for all you wonderful comments! I love hearing from you! Have a fantastic day!
