This week at Freshly Made Sketches Rita has provided this great sketch for our inspiration. I changed the format for my card because (I'm hiding embarressingly behind my hands... LOL) I didn't look carefully at the sketch before I put it together!
There is a strong possibility it wouldn't have fitted in landscape, but maybe I will try a different card in that format, this is such a great sketch.
I have used Ciao, Baby! (page 16 mini catty released Feb 1st) for two of the stamped images and 'Hello' is from the sale-a-bration set Pretty Petites. I love these two sets, probably because they have the sweetest little punches to match, mainly the Petite Curly Label Punch, because its new, and it is free with your $100 order. There is a 1and a quarter scalloped punch, originally in the Holiday Catalogue, but carried over now. I punched a one inch circle in Pool Party for them to sit on and then and Island Indigo punched out of the original Curly Label Punch. The ampersand fits pretty well inside the three-quarter inch circle punch. The patterned strip is a stamp from Summer Silhouettes, (page 82 annual catalogue) stamped in Pool Party too, which is a handy image when you just want something subtle to join it all together. The 'its your day' greeting is a retired hostess set called Happiest Birthday Wishes, which I still use quite regularly.
Hope you are feeling inspired to get a little inky too.
