You Brighten My Day!

Hello!! Happy New Year's Eve!! I don't know about all of you, but I'm looking forward to the new year. It might have a little something to do with the fact that I'm going to CHA in a little over three weeks though (grin).

Well, today I made this card for SCS's Sketch Challenge found HERE. I loved the sketch. Probably because it involved layers, and I LOVE layers.

I just had to haul out this sweet little Sarah Kay image again. You can get it at Stamper's Dream (Michelle has Sarah Kays from both sets, and some darling Rachelle Miller images...you really should stop by and check them out!! They're ultra cute and so much fun to color!) This one's called Precious Moments. I love her sweet hat and those darling chicks. I thought the sentiment from the set Charming Gardeners (Impression Obsession), fit perfectly with this image. Michelle just got in some new Impression Obsession images too!! Oh, how I love new stuff!! *grin*

I stamped her with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Neenah Solar White cs, and colored her with my copics. The sentiment was stamped with the same ink onto Sugared dp by Basicgrey, and embossed with Detailed Black ep (Judikins). I rounded the corners with a corner punch.

The bow is attached with some darling scroll and toggle pieces from the jewelry making section of Michaels. I love the heart shapes. I just attached them with brads on the one end, and tied the ribbon through the holes on the other. I think they give a really nice elegant touch to a card with a country feel. I like to mix the two styles. The border is a Martha Stewart border punch, and the flower is from SU's Spring Flower Bouquet punch. I added a dew drop to the center.

Supplies: Stamps - Precious Moments (Sarah Kay), Charming Gardeners (Impression Obsession) Paper - Sugared (Basic Grey), Birchtone Dark, White (Prismatics), Neenah Solar White Ink - Tuxedo Black (Memento), Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress) Accessories - Scroll Toggle (Michaels), organdy ribbon, sewing machine, copics, Martha Stewart border punch, Corner tag punch and Spring Flower Bouquet punch (SU), Dew Drop, brads, dimensional tape

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
I hope your new year is filled with blessings!!
Happy Stamping!
Tosh

You did a great job with this card, Tosh. I love it, especially the colors. These Sarah Kay stamps are so cute and I'm lucky to have a couple of them. I haven't used them yet - got them just a few weeks ago. I love your blog, too. I find I learn something each time I read it. Thanks!
