Happy Holliday - SASSC30


Good Morning!!!
Well I think cleaning my work area did the trick I managed to sit still long enough to make a card to post with another one on its way!!!

This card is for Stamps and Smiles sketch challenge 30. I always enjoy the sketches these girls come up with and last week I think my card missed the cut-off ! Not going to let that happen this week so got right on it.

Stamps: Umbrellas from Stamp World made in Australia (woo hoo).
Paper: Pale lemon craft card , Maroon card from my bits box! GKD PL layering weight in pure white and the dp is from Basic Grey Lemonade paper pad.
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic markers.
Embellishments: Maroon slim satin ribbon

The image was stamped onto PL pure white card and coloured with Copics. The sentiment is computer generated onto the same pure white card.
The base card is the pale lemon craft card as is the lace edged card. This was punched using a SU lace border punch, then I pierced around three sides.
The coloured image and sentiment were layered to the scrap of maroon card and attached to the lace edged pale lemon card.
I tied the ribbon at the top of this piece before it was attached to the dp.
The dp was then attached to the base card to finish off.

Can you tell how much I'm looking forward to Summer???? It's the first day today.... yeah.....

Thanks for taking the time to drop by till next time.......
