Sketch Challenge - Elegant Thanks

Good evening. I hope you all enjoyed your mother's day, I had a nice relaxing day with my boys. For this weeks Stamping 411 challenge I some muted spring colors as inspiration.  I started with the Elegant Lines Embossing folder and inked the folder with Crumb Cake classic ink.  Then I added a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot.  The result was adding the ink to the unembossed parts of the design and the embossed image stayed vanilla.  The embossed image is matted with a piece of Basic Grey on top of the Baja Breeze card based. 

Next I added a piece of Elegant Soiree DSP and then a piece of 1/8" Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon.  The stamped greeting is from the Afterthoughts hostess set (I love things you get for free!) and is punched out with the large oval punch, sponged with crumb cake ink and then matted on a piece of Soft Suede cardstock punched out with the Decorative Label punch.  This piece was adhered to the card with dimensionals.  The final touch was adding some butterflies that were cut out with the Beautiful Butterflies Embosslit.

I love how this card turned out, very nice and I love all the textures.  Now check out the sketch we were provided as inspiration.  Hope you enjoy and have a great week!

Happy stamping,


Pin It!
