August 15th Card sketch ~ SOUS ~

Wow! August 15th? Where has this month gone? Seems like life is flying by at the speed of light these days! But ... it is time for another Card Challenge Reveal Day over at Stuck on U Sketches. This time we have a sketch by the lovely Leah Schaeffer. You're gonna love it .. it really has so many possibilities although I followed it almost to the letter!

I've used some gorgeous Prima Almanac papers that have been languishing in my scrap room. I have so much pretty stuff that it all screams for my attention, so some of it lags behind the rest depending on my mood.  It sure made for a pretty card, though and is backed by a tan BoBunny Double Dot card stock as well as Recollections card base.

My circles were cut with a CM punch and are 1.5 inches. The top 6 of them were mounted on foam squares but the other 3 are flat for layering of some yummy black lace at the bottom. The Best Wishes sentiment is again a Heartfelt Creations one stamped on cream card stock and cut and embossed with my Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Oval Die. This was mounted on a simple rectangle with rounded corners and adhered with foam squares for dimension.

The circles as well as my sentiment are embellished with a variety of matching Prima Almanac supplies and florals as well as some matching MS pearls. The faux stitching along the sides is a BoBunny rub-on .. which I love!  I decided that the card needed a little something more, so kind of last minute I added the thin black ribbon along the side, and added another small charcoal bloom to my bow.

Inside there is mere more of the BoBunny card stock serving as a lining. I will most likely computer generate a message on white card stock when this is ready for giving and   adhere that to the lining. Maybe add a quick MS punched butterfly and send it on out!

Thanks for coming by! I hope that you will join our Card Challenge this time! We want to see your creations! I am sure that many of you are in the Back to School mode .. or wrapping up this last of the Summer plans, but if you have time, we hope you will play!

Have a scrap happy week! Love reading your comments!
