CCMC 219

Good Morning, Stampers!

This week's Create with Connie and Mary Thursday's Challenge is a sketch challenge. Normally, I really like to do my own thing when it comes to sketch challenges, however, I really like the clean and simple look of this layout, so I stuck with it!

Whatcha think? I began by cutting a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Labels Collection framelit. I stamped the large medallion from the Day of Gratitude stamp set in Whisper White ink and clear embossing powder. Using sponge daubers, I lightly rubbed Always Artichoke, More Mustard and Cajun Craze ink onto the image and lightly rubbed off the excess ink with a tissue.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the leaves - one in Cajun Craze and one in More Mustard and cut them out. I stamped the sentiment with Cajun Craze and punched with the word window punch.

The Distressed Dots background stamp was stamped with Always Artichoke ink onto a 1" x 5 1/2" piece of Always Artichoke cardstock.

I finished the card with a small piece of Polka Dot Scallop Ribbon and a Antique Brad.
