Sunny Sunday Sketch - Week 4

In between soccer games on Friday, I thought I would take a few minutes to come up with my sketch for the week. If you're a soccer fan like me, I hope you'll take a short break between games (there is about an hour or so between the morning games and if you need more time, there's about 2 hours between the second morning game and the afternoon game) to play along.

Here's the sketch:

And here's my take on it:

I made this card for my friend Melissa's Birthday which was this past Wednesday. The card will get to her late, but she does know I was thinking of her on her birthday (as I do every day).

My base is Tempting Turquoise, which is NOT retiring (thank goodness because I just discovered it and LOVE it!!!) and the next layer is Whisper White. The pieces of DSP are taken from the Island Oasis pack which you can find in the summer mini. In case you're wondering, they are 7/8" by 3 3/4".

I stamped the sentiment in Tempting Turquoise on Whisper White and matted it on Pumpkin Pie before adhering it to the front of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

What do you think?

STAMPS: Happy Everything (retiring)
INK: Tempting Turquoise
PAPERS: Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise Cardstock; Island Oasis DSP
ACCESSORIES: Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Stampin'!
