Sketch 229

Hello Friends! I hope you are all doing well! Today the weather is perfect! Not a cloud in the sky! Don't you love days like that!? I'm especially thankful, we moved back to Seattle to enjoy the wetest month of May in about 60 years!:) But the rain sure does make for a beautiful place to live! So, I'm welcoming the blue sky!

I was happy to get a chance to playalong with the SCS sketch challenge this week. Here is my sample for SC229. It is a great sketch and very easy to play along with!
I recently found this great paper by KI memories. I simply LOVE Amy Butler paper! I'm quite a sucker for it! It looks awesome and feels just as delightful! I love the combinations of color, prints etc., so here are some fun papers to share!

I started with my patterend paper today. After making the decision about what cardstock I had to coordinate with, I was set. With the sketch in hand, this card came together very quickly. My patterned paper was cut and attached to my Kiwi Kiss card.

I stamped the beautiful bird from the "Always" stamp set in basic gray ink-onto Very Vanilla cardstock. I used my stamj to line up my sentiment just right, it from the Sweet Little Sentiments hostess stamp set. I stamed my sentiment with Kiwi Kiss ink. I mounted my bird image on some Basic Gray cardstock and then again on Pink Pirouette. The image was then mounted on my card with dimensionals.

I used my boho flower and 3/4" circle punchs to make me some fun little additions. I love the Kiwi Kiss buttons...they are so delicious! I used one right on top of my largest flower. The other flowers were just mounted on a contrasting circle punch.

I'm really excited to get myself all moved in...we're down to days...YEA!! Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you make it wonderful!:)
