Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge & SSI Occasions Bundles: You Plus Me

Happy Friday peeps!  We’ve almost reached the end of the work week so let the fun begin, along with the usual family activities I have card class on Sunday that is always lots of fun and Aidan has a sleepover on Saturday, which means date night for mommy and daddy (whoo hoo!!!)  Before we get going with all that it’s time to share this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch challenge card.  This was a unique layout for me and I decided to combine it with the post we have over on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration blog focusing on the product bundles in the 2015 Occasions catalog.  I decided to us the Stacked with Love bundle and You Plus Me stamp set but I wanted to change things up and not make a Valentine’s card (I know!!!) so I decided to make an Anniversary card.

I started with Smoky Slate for the cardbase and then added a piece of Pistachio Pudding cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  Next I added two pieces of DSP from the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, as well as a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. For the stamped piece I used the You Plus Me stamp set and stamped the ampersand in Crisp Cantaloupe and the little hearts in Black Memento Ink before cutting it out with the Big Shot and Oval Collection Framelits before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  For the greeting I used the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and punched it out with the Word Window Punch and then matted it with Crisp Cantaloupe that was punched out with the Modern Label Punch.

I’ll admit this card turned out a bit more feminine than I had intended but love how all the different colors, patterns, and shapes play off each other.  The other design team members shared some fun cards as well so please go check them out and then play along with the sketch, I would love to see what you come up with.
