Freshly Made Sketches #23

Morning All,
Quick post before I run off to work. I had gone on over to Freshly Made Sketches and Tui Nathan had designed a great sketch:

I have been trying to get my March Stamp Club cards done this week and was having a hard time with the layout of the third. I knew I wanted to go a bit outside my comfort zone and use some bright colors with one of the stamp sets that you can earn for free with Sale-a-bration (Language of Friendship). So using this great sketch here is what I came up with:

Here is what I used:
Stamps:           Language of Friendship

Cardstock:        Whisper White half sheet
                            Wild Wasabi 4 ¾ x 3 ¼
                            Beyond the Garden DP 4x4
                            Whisper White 2 ¼ x 1”
                            Beyond The Garden DP 2 ½ x 1 ¼”  
Ink:                  Black, Pacific Point, and Wild Wasabi
Embellishments: Big Shot with Polka Dot Folder.

Punches:  2 Step Bird Punch and Boho Blossom Punch

I like how its different from my usual vintage, "softer" style. Always good to try to go outside of your comfort zone! Have a great day!
