Just a Little Note


Hi there! I had the day off today, so I planted flowers, cleaned up the front garden and while hubby was golfing this evening, I had some stampy time to myself! One of my favorite challenges has always been the JustRite Friday Challenge and this week is a sketch challenge, so I just had to play along!

I started by downloading this seed packet label template from the oh so talented and generous Sharon Harnist's Download Page...it's the Seed Packet Template #1 in case you're wondering. There are other downloads available there too, so check it out! I inked up the Gratitude Mix label and colored it in lightly with some coordinating Copics to my image. This flower image is from JustRite's Plant a Little Love set...one of my faves! It's colored with Copics and cut out with the Spellbinders Labels Two dies and mounted on top the the seed packet.

My sentiment is from the new Signs of Life set, cut out and matted with cardstock cut with the Charm Dies. It's topped with some vintage seam binding from Deb's Simple Treasures Etsy Shop and layered up with some lace, pearls, Basic Grey Green at Heart paper, zigzag stitching and a matching butterfly cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I first tried a lighter thread on my stitching and it got lost, so I tried some dark brown and it just pops! (Thanks to Mona's inspiration on all her cards!) I'm really happy with how this shabby little card turned out!
