Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge: Really Good Greetings

Good morning, can you believe it's July?  We had a very fun and busy weekend, Aidan did very well on his Black Belt Pre-Test on Saturday so we have two more weeks to prepare for the actual test, then today we had one of Aidan's classmates family over.  They are moving to Europe for a few years for a military assignment so this was the last chance we could see them before they leave.  It was a lot of fun and we're so excited for this new opportunity for them.  All these activities meant there wasn't much time to create in the studio but I was able to make this card for this weeks Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.  I'm totally in love with the new In Colors that were released last month and I can't seem to stop using them. 
This card uses the new Baked Brown Sugar for the cardbase and then I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock that I stamped with the Paper Pumpkin splotch stamp and Pistachio Pudding ink.  I also added some Rhinestones for a little bling.  Next I added some Pistachio Pudding designer series paper from the 2013-2015 In Color DSP stack along with a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock that was punched with the Scallop Border Punch, and a piece of Whisper White cardstock embossed with the Big Shot and the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing Folder.  I also added some Whisper White 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon for some added texture.

The greeting is from the Really Good Greetings stamp set (love this stamp set) and was colored in with Stampin' Write Markers before stamping.  The greeting was then punched out with the Large Oval Punch and matted on a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock that was punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.
This card is so fun and fresh, I love the colors and the greeting.  I'm so looking forward to the 4th of July holiday this week and having a little extra time to spend with the family (plus this weekend we actually don't have ANYTHING scheduled which hasn't happened in months so we're going to take advantage of the time and just chill).
Have a great day and happy stamping!

Pin It!
