Happy Wednesday!! So happy to see you! I am so excited to share with you this wonderful sketch from the amazing Rita Wright. Rita loves layers and this sketch gives so many options for how to layer that focal panel. You will see that the design team has such pretty interpretations and I know you will love playing along this week.
I started this card with one thing in mind…the bow! One of our guest designers this month, the amazing LeAnne Pugliese, created this awesome tutorial on shabby bows. I LOVE these bows and have never quite figured out how to make one. Now I know!! I thought that the Daydream Medallions stamps would be an appropriate style to go with bow. I love Crumb Cake with Razzleberry (let’s face it, I love Crumb Cake with about anything) and I think the colors set just the right tone for the shabby bow. Yes, it really is all about the bow! I added a little detail to the crossing panel with my Adorning Accents Embossing Folder and the sentiment comes from the beautiful Affection Collection set.
I apologize for being mostly absent over the past couple of weeks. I have a check ride (flying test) coming up this weekend. Every 9 months, airline pilots are required to do one of these to prove our worthiness and maintain certification. It is a really big deal and lots of studying is always a good idea. Once that is done, I’ll be able to turn on my crafting brain again and hopefully get some more creating done. I am planning on a fun surprise in the next week with a visit from a guest blogger that you are sure to love!
Until then, I know you will be amazed by the design team and our two guest designers this week! Hop on over to Freshly Made Sketches and take a look! Have a great day!!
