Feel Better Soon!

Good morning friends! I'm in denial that today is Thursday, how did that happen!? A crazy busy week, that's how! But a great one...I'm looking forward to just laying a bit low today...enjoying these last few days with my little ones before school starts.

I know that it is almost time for Beate's Weekend Sketch again, as the sketch comes out on Friday, but I've had this card waiting in the "wings" since Monday...and just finally getting on stage! So, here is the card I made using Beate's WSC93. I think this sketch is super fun...will use again for sure! Also, on this card I used some of my new "Something To Crow About" stamps from the September LAD monthly Mix!

Here is the set and it's images, a lot of fun in this mix, that's for sure! They will be avaliable soon!So, for my card, started with the fun flower image. I loved the polkas on the flower and kept the same polka theme by using some polka dot paper(SU Night and Day Specialty dsp from the Mini...coming soon!) and by embossing my Bermuda Bay panel with my Swiss Dots embossing folder. Polka's are fun.

My flower image was stamped with Black Stazon ink, and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I colored the image with my In Color Stampin' Write Markers, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry and Bermuda Bay. My flower image took a trip through the Big Shot with an oval nestability, to be cut and then embossed. I took some Crushed Curry on the same trip and used a scallop oval nestability to cut and emboss...I love the look of the nestabilities shapes embossed! That little detail is so fun!!

My card is a Crushed Curry base. I used a strip of Night and Day dsp, and then a strip of Melon Mambo ribbon(just used the back of it for a nice solid option) for my vertical lines. My horizontal Bermuda Bay panel went on a trip in a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder through the Big Shot...and came home with some great polkas!

I stamped my sentiment in Melon Mambo ink--the stamp is from the Everyday Sayings stamp set. I used my handy dandy word window punch to make it just right. A little button for some fun detail and then it was time to finish my flower.

I attached my flower to the card with dimensionals and then added some glossy accents to the colored parts of my flower. They are super rounded and shiney in real life..very fun!

I'm going to send this to my girlfriend that is having terrible back problems right now...a litle bright and cheery card, don't you think!?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Make it a great one!!
