World Card Making Day & US #75

Today is World Card Making Day - a great way to validate my obsession, er, I mean my hobby. We at Unscripted Sketches wanted to celebrate with a great sketch. We would love for you to play along.




As you can see I used Papertrey Ink's Mat Stack #4 with Fillable Frames #4 dies instead of a circle. And instead of a ribbon/label across the front of the circle I chose to use Zva crystals. My card base is PTI Summer Sunrise with a layer of Fine Linen, a strip of Autumn Abundance decorative paper and the Mat Stack which I die cut out of Terra Cotta felt and mounted with Stamper's Select White. Now here is where I strayed from PTI and went with my NEW STAMPS from Waltzingmouse - love them! I stamped musical backgrounds with Versamark on the Fine Linen layer. Then using PTIs Dark Chocolate ink I stamped the trunks of the trees from WM Teeny Trees. I added the leaves using Summer Sunrise ink rolled in Terra Cotta. The bird is stamped in Scarlet Jewel with the sentiment being stamped in True Black. I just love how this turned out...

Other Challenges:

I think this also qualifies for the Pile it On Challenge of being cute AND charming. Don't you think?

And the Tuesday Taggers Here Comes Autumn challenge. Obviously with my colors this is an autumn inspired card - I am thinking of calling it the Music of Fall.

A Spoon full of Sugar spots and Stripes Challenge. I have the striped decorative Autumn Abundance paper along with my Zva crystals as spots.

Hey Angy, thanks so much for your comment! So you're right around the corner, how cool is that :) I think I can help you out in the language department; we could go for coffee sometime if you like. Great card btw! Best wishes from a sunny terrace in Rohrbach :) Nina
