Stampin' Up! Very Best Occasions for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge. Links to the team hoppers are at the bottom of this post.

Here's our sketch...
and here is what I created using the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper and the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set.

My card base is Merry Merlot cardstock with a panel of Rustic Harvest DSP. I stamped the Happy Birthday from Very Best Occasions in Crushed Curry on a scrap of Basic White cardstock and punched it with the Double Oval Punch. I punched the mat from a scrap of Merry Merlot. It's adhered with a Dimensional. I also adhered three Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the upper right corner. Card front done, easy peasy!

For the inside...

another sentiment from Very Best Occasions and the fern from Nature's Prints Stamp Set.

The envelope flap was treated to a piece of the DSP as well.

and Tic Tac Toe 172 I went from top left diagonally to bottom right.
