Thank You Kindly

Good morning friends! Hope you had a great day marked a day that I'm happy for school to be starting soon! I hope I'm not alone in that! And, my husband is getting ready to go on a 56 mile hike...:) YEA! I've got a photo project lined up and will be working on busily while he is hiking!

For my card today, I'm in the same color scheme as I was in yesterday! I wanted to use this great Cosmo Cricket paper...and I have been dying to ink up this little polka dot purse! The purse comes from the LAD August Monthly Mix.
I stamped my purse on some Very Vanilla paper, ink Chocolate Chip ink. I then colored the purse with Real Red and Not Quite Navy Stampin' Write Markers. I used my Nestabilities and Big Shot to cut the purse out, and emboss the circle. The Real Red scallop circle was also cut and embossed with my Nestabilities.

The card is a Very Vanilla base, then a layer of Real Red and then the Cosmo Cricket paper. I used my new EK large scallop border punch for the Real Red scallops across the bottom, and some Vanilla taffeta ribbon across the belly. I attached my purse scallop with some dimensionals and then moved to my sentiment.

Thank you kindly is from the Circle Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it in Real Red on Vanilla Cardstock and then used my 1 1/4" punch to make it a perfect circle! My 1 3/8" is just the size to layer nicely under my sentiment, and I used the back side of my patterned paper. The button is just a random red button...but oh so cute!

Hope you have a great summer day. I think it's time to start thinking about school supplies, backpacks, lunchboxes, new runners, how fun!! Make it great! Thanks for stopping by!
