Hi Stampers,Here is my take on this weeks DOstamper Thursday DSC#195 Sketch Pad Challenge! I LOVED this challenge! I was dying to use those Lady Bugs from the Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set, and this layout worked perfectly to be able to do that. The large polka dots on the red layer was done with the Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, it really gives the card the dimension that the background layer needed.
The Lady Bugs were placed onto the squares cut from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies and given dimension with the Stampin Dimensionals. The cute black and white DSP was from the Pop Of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper. For my banner, I stamped Happy Birthday using the Thoughtful Banners Photopolymer Stamp Set and then cut out using the Bunch Of Banners Framelits Dies.Thank you so much for viewing my cards and for taking the time to leave me your comments! I read all of them, and I sincerely appreciate all of them!
As you know, I always make my own Custom Envelopes and Custom Envelope Liners to match all of my cards using the Envelope Punch Board. Adding the stripes for the liner just made the card. The finishing touch was to add the little bow with the retired Whisper White 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.
Always love to hear you comments on the card!
