Bring Your Own Sunshine!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Saturday!! Today is my last day as a Sugar Baby for The Sweet Stop Sketch Team! I had a WONDERFUL time these past six months, and I will be sure to continue to play along with these fabulous sketches! Thank you SO much for having me on the team Korin!!

Here is my card for today's sketch, SSS49! I LOVE this sketch and had a blast making this card!

I used the absolutely GORGEOUS new set from Verve, Feel The Sun...LOOOOOVE this set!! I started my stamping the quote in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and then cut it out with Rectangle Nestabilities. I sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe & Memento Tangelo to make it pop. I stamped the three flowers, also in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, and then colored them all with Copic Markers. I just started coloring with these colors and that determined the color scheme of my card.

I used NO patterned paper on my card...which for me is quite a feat!! I did add some texture to my Black and Intense Orange panels by embossing them with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. The border is Upper Crust by Fiskars and I added Black Pearls along the border and to the visible corners of my focal panel. I finished this one off with a ribbon knot of Black Gingham.
