As I often do, I used the colors and the sketch, plus the theme of friendship.
The deckle die I used for the teal rectangle was too large for my concept. I just used the die a second time to trim off one side and the bottom to make it smaller. Layered it onto a white stitched rectangle and added it to an A2 card arrayed with different patterned strips from my scrap box. I cut a butterfly from one of the papers I used for some strips and added an enamel dot. Stacked several hellos for dimension and added the outline, plus a stamped friend. I found this sketch a perfect way to use my extra paper bits!
I received this beauty & some crafty bits from dear Hilary (Fiddling About) in the UK. Just love her take on the sketch with the more organized strips! The coppery paper looks amazing too & she always has a gorgeous stamped envelope - thanks, Hilary!!
If you'd like to play along in July, you have until July 6th to sign up HERE. You just need to be willing to make and send one card to the person above you in the sign-up link. It's loads of fun and I've met so many lovely card makers through this challenge!
In fact, I've become friends with Gundi (Papierelle) in Germany who sent me this gorgeous card and bookmark just for fun - thanks a bunch, Gundi!! Such pretty poppies atop the inked panel & don't you just love all the stitching on that bookmark? I do!!
Thanks for stopping!!
