Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Bloom with Hope

Happy Friday!  Just a few short hours before we get to start the weekend and while I miss my kiddo I'm very exited to have an entire weekend with the hubby, just to two of us.  We don't have lots of elaborate plans but that's OK.  Before all the fun gets started it's Friday, which means it's time for another card sketch challenge over on the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog.  We have a really fun sketch this week so I decided to pull out lots of new catalog goodies and play.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand and I added a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock that's embossed with the Big Shot and the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder.  Next I added a strip of DSP from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack and matted it with Old Olive cardstock.

For the main stamped image I used the Bloom with Hope Hostess stamp set and stamped it with Momento Ink and then colored in the flower with Coastal Cabana and Old Olive Blendabilities markers (these markers are so much fun and work so well with our Whisper White cardstock, you really do have to give them a try).  This piece of cardstock was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create a fun detail on the top and have a place to add some Old Olive 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon

I matted the stamped tag piece with some Sahara Sand cardstock with the Big Shot and Fancy Fans Embossing folder.  The final touch was to stamp the greeting using the same stamp set with Coastal Cabana ink and then punched it out with the Modern Label Punch.  I did sponge around the edge of the label with Sahara Sand ink before attaching it to the card with dimensionals.

This card has so many fun textures and details that really work well together, it turned out even better than I thought.  Make sure to check out all the other design team cards and come play along with our challenge (we would love to see what you come up with and show you some love).  This would definitely help make a friends birthday extra special.

I hope you enjoyed this weeks card and have a great weekend!
