Stamp Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: Personalized Photopolymer Stamps

Hello Friday!  Spring break starts today and we're all looking forward to a little break from all the spring craziness.  It's supposed to be absolutely beautiful this weekend and I can't wait to get out and enjoy it!  Since it's Friday you know it's time for another challenge over on the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog.    The cardbase for this card is Crumb Cake cardstock.  Next I added a layer of Pool Party cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and sponged all over with Crumb Cake ink.  The designer series paper is from the This and That Epic Designer Series Paper and I just trimmed it at an angle before adding a piece of Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon.
For the main stamped image I used one of the new Personalized Circle Monogram Photopolymer Stamp that I designed and ordered.  I love that there is no limit to what you can create with these stamps, I made another one to stamp on cards I make that includes my name and website address.  The best thing is that you can see a sample of what the stamp is going to look like before you order (there was another one I designed that I just didn't like how it looked so I didn't order it).  Anyway, I stamped the image in Calypso Coral ink and punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  I created mats for the circle using Pool Party Cardstock and the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and Daffodil Delight Cardstock and the Scallop Circle Punch.  I used the Chalk Marker to add little dots to each of the scallops for added texture.
To finish off my element I added some Gumball Green 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon to make little flag tails.
This card will be perfect to congratulate Aidan for his hard work at school (he was selected for the Principals list for the 3rd Quarter in a row and was so excited).    I hope you enjoyed today's card and we would love for you to play along with the sketch and make sure to share your card on the blog so we can enjoy your project and send you some love.
Have a great weekend!
