Thinking Of You!

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's sketch at The Sweet Stop, SSS42!

I had SO much fun making this card! It was also really simple as I used the largest Scallop Circle Nestabilities to create the card base!

I used the new Origins by Basic Grey as my patterned paper choice (LOVE this line!!) and I stamped "Thinking Of You", from Nature of Friendship by There She Goes onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I then stamped the large leaf, also from Nature of Friendship, three times in Memento Cottage Ivy after stamping off once each time. I cut out my panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged around the edges with Memento Desert Sand.

I created a border with my Apron Lace Punch (love this punch!!) and added three black Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the focal panel. I finished off the card with a yummy Origins Bloomers, also from Basic Grey!

    Your card is wonderful! I saw it in the Yahoo group. I've got to figure out how to cut those round shapes with my Nesties without cutting the edge... I guess you just line it up and let that part stick out? Must try!
