...for stopping by again after I've been absent since Saturday! Sorry- things got away from me with a crazy hectic weekend. The flower girl stint my daughter had went well- but kept us busy Friday & Saturday. Sunday we spent at cookouts all day and Monday included the parade, friends visiting then a ball game to end the long weekend. What a gorgeous Memorial Day weekend though- the best weather for that holiday in a long time it seems!
Anyway, I'm back today just in time (well, a little late actually) to play along with the Coffee Break Diva's for the sketch challenge this week. The sketch is simple and unique, full of possibilities. For my take on it I broke out my new Parisian Breeze Specialty textured papers from SU! Man are these gorgeous and they ARE included in the "Buy 3 get one FREE" sale that ends on Sunday.
I combined the gorgeous colors (Baha Breeze, Kraft, Whisper White and Chocolate Chip) with some Big Shot dies and some jumbo brads for a soft textured look! The dies I used are the Flower Burst embosslit which embosses while it cuts(!!) and the Sizzlits Little Leaves which are both exclusive to Stampin' Up! I dabbed a tiny bit of Baha Breeze ink on the flowers to enhance the texture with a sponge dauber.
The word Wonderful is embossed with clear powder over chocolate chip ink for more texture and a little shine. Inside I stamped the word "YOU" with the Lovely Letters alphabet and embossed it as well.
Well, thanks for looking! Hopefully I'll be stealing some time every day to stamp, but you know how that goes with the kiddos home from school for the summer... Make sure you go visit the Diva blog and play along with our challenge! We'd love to come visit you and show our appreciation!
