Sweet Sunday Sketch #14

I feel like I am so on top of things, especially for a Monday! I was able to make this card yesterday and I *love* the way it turned out! This is for Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #14.

This color combo is simply yummy! I love this dsp - it is called To the Nines and it is a heavy weight designer paper that has texture. Love the texture! :)

I also played around with my new Matchbox Bigz XL die for the Big Shot. I used a scrap piece of Always Artichoke cs and the die to cut the label for the sentiment. I stamped the frame with Chocolate Chip ink two times - once on Sage Shadow cs and once on Very Vanilla cs. I trimmed each so that they would layer on top of each other, and I added the sentiment to the Very Vanilla. The frame and sentiment are from the Great Friend set, available in the Occasions Mini. Did you notice how I notched the ends of my ribbon? I love that little touch, it adds to the elegant feel of the card.

Have a great Monday!
