Fab Friday Color Sketch: Oh, My Goodies!

Happy Wednesday!  I've been having a little extra play time in the studio lately (yeah) so I've been enjoying making some cards using some of the stamps that will be retiring.  For this card I decided to use the Fab Friday color sketch and this was great since Lost Lagoon has been one of my favorite recent In Colors and it's retiring this month as well.

I started with Lost Lagoon cardstock for the cardbase and then used Crumb Cake cardstock for the cardfront, which I embossed with the Big Shot and Brick Wall Embossing Folder (and then sponged all over with Soft Suede ink to highlight the embossing).  I added some sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment, as well as the In Color Sequins (retired).

For the stamped image I used the Oh, My Goodies stamp set (retiring) and used Stampin' Write Markers to color in the image before stamping on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I used the Big Shot and Deco Labels Framelits (retiring) to cut out the greeting along with the mat using Soft Sky cardstock.  For the mat I embossed it with the Big Shot and the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and then sponged around the edges with Lost Lagoon ink.  I wanted some extra texture so I added a piece of ruffled Hello Honey 5/8" Stitched Cotton Ribbon (retiring) along with some tags of Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon (retiring, this stuff is awesome!!)

This saying is so great and something we should all strive for.  I love how these colors work together and you can "antique" the look by just adding a little sponging, and of course sequins and glitter make everything better!
