Imagine the Possibilities- A Fun Sketch and Cute Inspiration Photo :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I hope you had a wonderful Easter week and Resurrection Sunday!

I had a chance to create this card this past weekend for the Freshly Made Sketches FMS180 Challenge along with the Around the World AW38Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the pink in the flowers as well as the gray wood in the log behind that cute bunny :-)).

Again, if you have not stopped by either challenge site yet, I hope you will find the time to do so- terrific inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Open a blank document in My Digital Studio (MDS), position the Postage Due image (reducing a bit) along with the Word Play image onto the page (leaving enough space between them for the paper bow and "ribbon") and print out using Black Printer Ink onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the image using Stampin’ Write Markers- Strawberry Slush for the flower petals, Wild Wasabi for the leaves and Smoky Slate for the shadows around the bicycle, postmark, number and flower.

Trim the panel and create the rounded corners using the 2 ½” Circle Punch (hold the punch upside down so you can see the opening that the punch creates, insert the corner of the cardstock into the punch until the curve matches the edges on both sides and punch; repeat on the other side).  Sand the curves using the Sanding Block to help smooth the edges.

Mount the panel onto a piece of Strawberry Slush cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White card base.

Add a strip of Basic Black in the center (to mimic the ribbon) along with the Basic Black bow created with the Bow Builder Punch and adhere the Antique Brad in the center of the bow (I removed the brad points and adhered with glue).

Add the Rhinestones to the upper left hand corner and lower right hand area to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Postage Due, Word Play (both MDS versions)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write Markers- Strawberry Slush, Wild Wasabi and Smoky Slate

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Strawberry Slush

Accessories: Bow Builder Punch, Antique Brad, Rhinestones

Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a terrific Monday!!
