The best way to start back in the blogging routine is to pick up some challenges and I couldn't resist the Paper Craft Crew challenge this week. Can you believe they are up to #111?!
This is the sketch:
I separated the DSP and the Whisper White cardstock with a piece of the new Silver Satin ribbon. I also used a piece of the discontinued Stretch Ruffled Pistachio Pudding Ribbon from last season because I adore texture!
The textured frame in the background is the Fun Frames TIEF which I have fussy cut out and daubed the edges with Smoky Slate Classic Ink pad. On top of this I layered the dotted frame from Four Frames stamped in Smoky Slate and punched out with the matching Decorative Label punch.
The sentiment "thanks" is from the And Many More stamp set but I have only inked up half of the stamp as it says "give thanks". It is stamped in Smoky Slate - I hand cut the pennant shape and daubed the edges so that it would fit the theme. The three pearls on the bottom right hand side are on top of the embossed polka dots which made placement really easy lol!
Not bad for my first non-essential card in months. . .
