Hello everyone and Happy Independence Day! It’s so nice to have off in the middle of the week! I hope that you have an evening of safe fireworks watching planned for later. Today is my dog Winston’s most unfavorite day of the year. He will spend the evening shaking himself to piece because of the noise. He does it during thunderstorms too but July 4th is much worse. I have some parties to go to today and my friend Kim is out form the city to accompany me.
Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. This weeks sketch is provided by Carole Burrage…
SInce Stampin’ Up! doesn’t have any oval dies any more I used the Labels Collection Framelits instead. The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I embossed a piece of Cajun Craze with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. To the top of that I added a piece of Comfort Café Designer Series Paper and I punched a piece of Very Vanilla with the Scallop Trim Border Punch to go along the bottom edge. The piece of ribbon across the middle is Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and I tied a knot on the right side and snipped it at an angel with my Paper Snips. The stamped image is from the From My Heart Stamp Set and is stamped in Cajun Craze. I embossed a piece of Soft Suede with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and mounted it to a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. I adhered the stamped image and the backing to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the a nice finish I used one of the Naturals Designer Series Buttons and a Stampin’ Dimensional to adhere a piece of Cajun Craze that I punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. To the center of it I added a Basic Jewels Large Pearl and used a Mini Glue Dot to adhere it to the card. I love the colors in the Comfort Café DSP and I really like the way the button looks with the paper and the pearl in the middle. I hope that y0u enjoyed this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card and thank you as always for checking in. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
