Cardabilities Sketch #53 {My First Design Team Reveal}

This is my second post for the day, to see my Paper Players card please click HERE.


Today marks my first design team card with as a Cardabilities Design Team Member. I absolutely love Karan's gorgeous sketch! I dug out my Memory Box Die called "Scalloped Posie".  I also decided to use my new Spellbinder die set called "Foliage". Before removing the die from the paper, I sponged on top of the leaves with some Sage Shadow ink. The main oval is created with the Oval Nesabilities.  I used one of the pretty sentiments from Joanna's "Inspired by Stamping" sets called "All Year Wishes II". 

I wanted to create a vintage styled card for my mom who loves greeny blues and pinks put together on a card. Everything is sponged with some Soft Suede Ink, to make it a little warmer. I hope you get the chance to join us at Cardabilities...the sketch is on and we would love to see you stop by and play along.


Supplies Used
Stamps: Inspired by Stamping "All Year Wishes II"
Inks: Sage Shadow, Rich Cocoa Memento Ink, Soft Suede
Papers: My Mind's Eye, Bo Bunny "Et Cetra"
Tools: Big Shot, Memory Box-Scalloped Posie, Oval Nesties, Foliage Nesties, Medium Scalloped Edge Die (MFT)
