Another Friday and time for Bloggers' Challenge. Lisa made up a sketch for us to use this week. As you know, I LOVE sketches! This one came together pretty quickly!
I started by cutting the Oval from Whisper White with the Ovals Die and the Big Shot. I also cut the Sahara Sand piece at the bottom of the oval at the same time. I tore the top edge and added sand granules with the Itty Bitty Backgrounds speckle stamp in Sahara Sand. I used a sponge dauber to add some Tempting Turquoise water above it. Then I inked up the palm tree from Tropical Party with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers, stamped it twice. I punched a 1 1/4" hole in a scrap piece of cardstock, then used a sponge dauber and Summer Sun to make the sun in the background.
I layered the oval on polka dot pattern from Island Oasis Designer Paper and then Sahara Sand cardstock. I ran a piece of Old Olive thru the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Impressions folder. I wrapped the 1" Chocolate Chip Ribbon around to the back and secured. The entire piece was adhered to the base card of Tempting Turquoise. Finally, I added two Kraft Corduroy Buttons and cut small slivers of Chocolate Chip cardstock to make the "thread". I used Mini Glue Dots to secure to the front of the card! I stamped Happy Birthday from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Chocolate Chip on Sahara Sand, punched with the Word Window and then punched the Modern Label from Chocolate Chip cardstock.
I like how it turned out! Hope you have a WONDERFUL weekend!
