MTSC79 Just For You

Today I got to play the Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  I really love Mercy's sketches - you can layer them up or keep them simple.  Today I opted for keeping it simple!  :)  I also was able to ink up the brand new set by JustRite Stampers called All Occasions Sentiments and Verse.  What a fabulous set for the cards you make for the every day events in your life!!!  In this case it's simply, Just For You!  :)

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some aqua bazzill (pierced around the edge) and then some October Afternoon Thrift Shop DSP.  I changed the rectangle panel to a Label 4 panel of vanilla, embossed and then ran my BG10 Copic around the edge (no more worrying about accidentally going over the edge because I have my Colourless Blender to push any mistakes back in!!!).  I stamped the sentiment from All Occasions Sentiments and Verse in Memento London Fog and used the new Clear Horizontal Stamper which made it so easy to line up (because I am terribly lazy and hate having to get out the stamp-a-ma-jig!).   Next I ruffled some of this GORGEOUS ruffled suede ribbon, attaching it with some X-press It High Tack Tape (which is totally brilliant I have to say!) and then added a paper flower that I made using the Spellbinders Dahlia die, accenting with some branches punched with matching card.  To finish I added some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls under the sentiment and then a few more in the top corner (you can never have too many pearls!  ;)  ).

Stamps - All Occasions Sentiments and Verse (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Aqua Bazzill, October Afternoon Thrift Shop DSP
Ink - Memento London Fog
Accessories - Copic BG10, Ivory Ruffled Suede Ribbon, Dahlia Nestabilities, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!

Beautiful Kathy! I have the JustRite stamps and stamper coming so can't wait to play with them. I love the suede ruffled ribbon and the way you went around the shape with the Copic!! That paper is so pretty too.
I am off to Brisbane tomorrow to see my brother over the weekend. Pity there wasn't a craft show on LOL!
