Fresh Vintage - Sketch Challenge

Good evening.   We had a great weekend, not only did we have fabulous weather and spent a lot of time outside and in shorts no less, but I had a fun class on Saturday morning, saw The Lorax last night with the boys, and spent the day relaxing outside celebrating a friends birthday.  For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I wanted to create a card that was bright and cheery and since sale-a-bration will be ending soon the Fresh Vintage stamp set and matching DSP and brad would be perfect.  The cardbase is Crumb Cake and I matted a piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP on Poppy Parade.  I distressed the edges of all the layers with the cutter kit and then sponged them with Crumb Cake ink.   The main stamped image is on Very Vanilla cardstock and the floral image from the Fresh Vintage stamp set was inked with Pool Party, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, and Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write markers.   The geometric image is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  The greeting is in Soft Suede and is from the Happiest Birthday Wishes stamp set. 

The decorate accent in the bottom right of the card was so easy.  I used the Oval Punch to cut a piece of Lucky Limeade cardstock and the Modern Label Punch with Peach Parfait cardstock.  Both of these pieces were sponged with Soft Suede ink before being layered and folded over the edge of the card.  The final touch was a brad from the Everyday Enchantment brad pack.  This card turned out so elegant and pretty and it's even better that most of the items I earned FREE during sale-a-bration. 

I hope you enjoyed this card and the weekend as well.

Take care and happy stamping,

Pin It!
