Enjoy The Ride!


Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!

Here is my card for today's Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT)! I seriously {heart} Jen's sketches!!!

For my card today, I used a set that I just got from The Cat's Pajamas, Joyride! I was TOTALLY enabled by Jackie Pedro with her amazing card HERE!

I stamped this cutie in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored the entire image with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe while the panel was still in the die. I layered it with a piece of Wizard Dark cardstock cut from Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities.

The patterned paper, which is where I pulled the colors for the card from, is the DELIGHTFUL new Pixie-Licious by Cosmo Cricket. I never really thought of myself as a purple person, but I am just LOVING it lately (in fact, I just got this bag from Vera Bradley to use as a diaper bag...I am all about the purple!).

I used the green polka dot paper from Pixie-Licious to create the flower and I used the AWESOME new Flower Buttons Cut-Ups, also from The Cat's Pajamas! I added some vanilla thread and created a bow to top it off. I sewed each layer with my sewing machine and added the sentiment, "Enjoy The Ride" directly onto the patterned paper. I also added the "beep beep" sentiment to my focal panel. Both of the sentiments are from Joyride!
