Last year at work it was kind of quiet around this time, this year, not so much. I had another field trip this morning and a second one in the afternoon! Not that I’m complaining, because I do like to get out of the office. Who knows what today will bring? Stay tuned tomorrow to find out! LOL! And Friday I get to go to work at 6:15 in the morning. YAY! Can you feel the excitement? I hope your week is going better than mine is. Well, I do get my new goodies today from my pre-order, that will make everything better!!
On a happier note, today I have my Design Team post for this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge. We have a fun one this week that you can layer up…
For the base of my card I used a piece of Chocolate Chip Card Stock. The background is a piece of Sweater Weather Designer Series Paper and the Soft Sky edge on the right side is created with the Small Scallop Stampin’ Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade. The next layer is a piece Crushed Curry that I embossed with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with another piece of Chocolate Chip. My greeting is from the Six Sided Sampler Stamp Set and is stamped in Tangerine Tango and Chocolate Chip, I backed it with a piece of Soft Sky that is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch and two Tangerine Tango flags stem from the bottom. To complete the card, I stamped the bee from the Backyard Basics Stamp Set in Basic Black and cut him out with the Backyard Basics Framelits, a Stampin’ Dimensional holds him in place. Funnily enough, I realized after I finished the card that the greeting pairs quite nicely with the bee and the honeycomb! Happy accidents are the best! 🙂 As always, thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by my blog. Don’t forget to head over to the Paper Craft Crew blog to see what the rest of the Design Team did with the sketch and remember to enter your card in the gallery so we can see what you did with it!
