Well I had a fabulous day with my friend yesterday. We did look at dresses and I took some pictures but I did not try anything on. I wanted to spend time with my friend not trying on dresses. I will be going back with Jess one day so we try some one. This mall had a lot more navy dresses but not any burgundy colored ones. I am hoping the Fall will have some burgundy ones.
My card today uses the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches
I loved the simplicity of this and knew I could use some of my new Affectionately Yours ds paper. this paper is very busy so I will be looking for ways to use it and tone it down. I chose one of my favorite patterns from the collection. I love the cute little flowers on this paper. I began by cutting my piece for my card. I added some strips of navy for the strips in the sketch. Then I needed a sentiment. Since the paper was busy, I wanted a bold sentiment. I went to my retired set and found this one. I stamped it then trimmed the paper down and rounded the corners. I added some sponging to the edges and attached to my card front with dimensionals. Here is my completed card.
