Hello stampers! Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments #289. As part of the design team we get to see the challenges weeks ahead of time but I almost never work ahead. I seem to be a procrastinator at heart and always wait until the last minute to get things done. I've also been a little behind with my orders and finally just recieved my Share What You Love suite. Demonstrators were able to order this fun sneak peek pack last month and it's available to customers this month--until the end of May. There are three different packs to choose from, each with a little more product than the next. I chose to go with the biggest pack called the Gotta Have It All Bundle.
For this card I, most of the products I used are from this bundle. The peachy colored paper is a new In-color called Grapefruit Grove. It's scrumptious! I also used some beautiful specialty designer paper from a pack called Share What You Love. The flower and watercolor background splat are stamps from a new set called Love What You Do. The sentiment is from Petal Palette...one of my favorites! Other new products are the sweet little Artisan Pearls and a little peek of a pearlized doily. These are gorgeous!
To add some texture I used my Basket Weave TEF (textured embossing folder) to the Pool Party panel. To finish things off I wound some thin gold thread behind the main panel and popped it up on dimesionals.
I'm also adding my card into the Just Add Ink #407 challenge just add "O". My "O" is orange....or and orange-y color which in this case is Grapefruit Grove
I hope you'll be able to join us for this fun sketch challenge at HSS.
Thanks for taking a peek and have a blessed day!
