Bold Blocks


Good Morning, Friends! Surprisingly, I woke up feeling very refreshed this morning and full of energy (that doesn't usually happen)! I am ready to face the day. And, it looks to be a busy day, so I am posting early. I also have a couple of RAKs to post later, so I'll be back with that in a bit. For now, here is my take on Sara's Sketch #4. I'm not doing them in order, but I am doing them. {wink}
Details, details- This is another card for my friend so I am following a certain color scheme so they all "match". I kinda wish I had turned one of those leaves on it's side and I still may attempt to do that. Card base is Paper Trey Stamper's Select White. This lovely "Rubber Stampede" leaf was a Clearance find at HL for less than $2! And I LOVE it. The leaves are stamped in Brilliant Blue on MME Kaleidoscope DP. It was a wide striped paper so all of the squares are from the same sheet. Those are mounted onto Whisper White and then a Brilliant Blue strip. "With Sympathy" is from Close to Comfort stamped in Brilliant Blue. Then I simply paper pierced a line.
So far I have 2 Sympathy, 2 Generic Birthday, 2 Get Well, and 2 Thinking of You cards in the set. What else should I include?
I'll be back in a bit with those RAKs. I hope you all have a happy Tuesday!
I feel like stampin'!
