Yay, one more work day this week. I don't know about you, but I'm sure glad.
Last night after dinner I made this fun, beachy card using the theme from this week's Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge, and the current sketch from Sunday Stamps. I've used one of my favorite Avery Elle sets called Aloha.
I started with a Real Red card base and some "beachy" patterned papers from the Echo Park Paradise Beach pad. The tropical images are stamped on X-Press It Blending card stock with Memento black and colored with Copics. I cut them out with the corresponding dies and layered them onto the front of the card. For the horizontal band and the banners in the sketch, I used grass cloth paper. Beachy, right? I finished with a few enamel dots to balance out the elements.
I've used Taylored Expressions sentiments and image on the inside.
I really love this sentiment! Don't you wish this was an everyday dilemma?
Have a wonderful Friday. I'm hoping to finish my work project a little early in the afternoon tomorrow, then I have two boxes of new SU Christmas goodies to play with. Looking forward to that!
