Sketch Challenge #27

Happily I was able to spend some time making cards today and have completed enough to fill my July box that I will pack up and send off to Dixie in the next day or two. This week's sketch card (shown here) will be included.


I have recently rediscovered my corner rounding punch and as is often the case when this happens I find myself hooked and using it over and over. I am pretty sure the 80/20 rule applies to crafting (you use 20% of what you own, 80% of the time) but I am determined to challenge myself to use a wider variety of tools, papers, embellishments and whatnot that make up my enormous stash. After all, I need to make room for new stuff somehow!

Happy Crafting Everyone!

Beautiful colors and papers! I like the sentiment - is that a stamp? Embossed? Very pretty!

Paula, You know how you can look at a card and it just makes you feel happy and it brings that soothing feeling to your soul? Well, that's what happened when I looked at this card. Thank you and blessings, Louise

I love that beautiful print, but mostly the sentiment as focal point. I wondered, too, how you made the sentiment. Love it.

Paula said...

Hello All...Thanks for your kind words. The Thank You sentiment in this card is an older StampinUp stamp (long retired by now I am sure, though you may find an old used set on Ebay) and I stamped it an orange ink. Normal dye ink with ni embossing or anything special done to it.
