Happy Saturday! The temperature is warming up and the snow mounds are receding at a fast pace. I am a happy girl. We even uncovered the Magnolia tree that we had wrapped up for the winter. I received this tree as a Mother’s Day present last year, when the blooming period was already over. I am so anxious to see the blooms this Spring!
Today’s Sketch Saturday card features another of the Whiff of Joy’s new April digital images: Charlotte and Charlie Waltzing." I also used a heart border from a previous release and the new sweet tags heart punch. I think this is one of my all time favorite dies and I love how the little hearts tie in so nicely with the border die I used. The paper is my new Kaiser Craft pad and the butterflies were made with a Martha Stewart punch.
After cutting out the tag using my Cuttlebug, I stamped it with Versamark using Stampin’ Up’s “En Francais” background stamp. I then embossed with White embossing powder and then sponged the edges with Distress Ink Spun sugar. I just noticed that I didn’t punch out all the little hearts at the bottom. Oops…that looks a little unfinished… I will attend to that presently.
This week our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who are offering a lovely gift certificate to buy goodies at their store! Hope you can play along with us this week and don’t forget to check out the gorgeous cards by my fellow DT!
