TESC124 - Brighten My Day

Happy Friday people!! I hope you had a wonderful week. I did...just knowing that there's only one week left until school starts! I know I'm reading on others blogs that people are just torn up that their kids have begun school this week...Ok...is it wrong that I'm jealous? LOL! I'm sooo ready for school to start! Love those kids to death!

So I have the latest TE Sketch Challenge for you today, and while it *may* put you in the mood to get a load of laundry in the wash...resist and get creative instead! Here's your sketch for the week. :)


And here is how I interpreted it...


There's quite a bit of shimmer in this card...just so striking in person! I spritzed both the flowers and leaves with that glimmer spritz for shine. Of course, that's TOTALLY not captured in the full photo..maybe this one's better?


I used the new Garden Party Blooms Die Set #2 to make my flower and stems. I am in LOVE with these new dies! My patterned paper is from Girl Friday by Cosmo Cricket...another paper pad I adore that has been sadly neglected! My rectangular panels are actually vellum that I stitched right on top of my card...love that look! And finally, my sentiment came from A Year of Sweet Sentiments...good golly, how did I go without this set for so long? Absolutely ALL the sentiments you could possibly NEED!

Well, there you go folks! I hope that you are able to participate this week, and be sure to check out the rest of the Sketch Crew's projects for even more inspiration!


Thanks soooo much for your visit!

Glimmer and shine is hard to capture but your second photo shows it off nicely. Adorable card, love the flowers.
