Unscripted Sketches #80 and a Birthday card.


I used this week's Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration for my husband's birthday card. I think it turned out pretty good.




For the base of the card I used PTI Kraft cardstock and then used the new Distressed Dots and Turning a New Leaf designer papers for my 2 layers. Ripe Avocado cardstock was used with PTI's new Limitless Layers die to create the sunburst layer. The sentiment is from PTI Fillable Frames and the dragonfly is from Masculine Motifs. I added Rustic wood buttons tied with baker's twine as my embellishments. Except for my background text stamping - all products are from Papertrey Ink. The background text, however, is a new set from Waltzingmouse. Love it - it is called Text It! Amazing set with 5 fabulous fonts. The text is also long enough to go from end to end horizontally on a card without having to match up the ends. So easy peasy to get it lined up and on the cardstock.

Enjoy!
