Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Hello, Lovely

Happy Friday, yeah!  It seems like out weather is finally warming up and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we are done with winter and we can finally start to enjoy spring.  It’s also another race weekend for me, on Sunday I’m running the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler, I haven’t run this race before but I’ve heard really good things and I’m excited.  I know the cherry blossoms won’t be in full bloom but I’m thinking it’ll still be really pretty with all the monuments.  It’s Friday so today I’m sharing my design team card for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge.  This is a really fun, easy layout that really lends itself to showcasing some of the great designer series papers we have this year.  For this card I started with a So Saffron cardbase (I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I really like to use a lighter base color so it’s really easy to write in the card and mail it out) and I added a layer of Baked Brown Sugar Cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Chevron Embossing Folder (I love how simply embossing layers really elevates a project and it’s not a lot of effort, awesome).  Next I added a piece of Retro Fresh Designer Series Paper.
For the little flag elements I used the same DSP and the Petite Curly Label Punch to make the flags a breeze.  To hide the seam I just added a piece of the Coastal Cabana Stretched Ruffle Ribbon.  For the greeting used the Hello, Lovely stamp set and used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the greeting before stamping.  A little sponging around the edge with a sponge and Baked Brown Sugar ink was the final touch before attaching it to the card with dimensionals.

This is a great flat, mailable card that is easy to make but really packs a punch which the recipient is sure to love.  We would love for you to play along with us for this weeks sketch challenge and make sure to share your creations so we can check them out and show you some love.

Below is the list of products used for this project: 
Have a wonderful weekend and hope you can spending a little time relaxing and crafting (always puts me in my happy place!)
