Stampin' Up! Timeless Tidings Waterfront

Know what today is? It's my 49th wedding anniversary with Perry! BUT it's also the



I didn't think I was going to be able to play but then I looked at the supplies I brought with me and saw that I had current ones which I could use for our sketch challenge today...woo hoo. Here's the sketch...

and because it's Anything Goes at Addicted to Stamps and More #311....here's my card...

Got a minute so I can tell you how I made it? Good! I started with a piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock. Adhered a piece of cardstock from the Timeless Tidings Project kit. I cut a piece of Whisper White and used my Stamparatus to stamp 4 images along with the sentiment from Waterfront. My palm tree tops are Mossy Meadow, trunks are Early Espresso, the water is Pacific Point stamped off once, the sand is Soft Suede stamped off once, and the sentiment is Soft Suede full strength. I then adhered that to the base and mat. So that the top was not so plain, I made a Billie Moan/Mary Deatherage bow out of linen thread...and then a regular bow out of Mossy Meadow cotton twine from the Festive Farmhouse set.  I struggle so with the linen bow no matter how many times I watch Mary's video! I added one of the biggest pearl from the Basic Pearl Jewels.

For the inside on the bottom, I adhered a scrap left over from the mat. I used another stamp from the Waterfront set for the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink.

See, I told you it would only take a minute. Now, I hope you can take a few minutes to hop through the rest of the cards that were made using this sketch. Clicking on the next button will take you to the ever-so-talented Julie Johnston.
