Tea Party Hello - Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:

Here is this week's sketch:

What a fun sketch! I created a color combination that I would have never thought about:

I knew that I wanted to color my stamp image with markers and that I wanted to use Strawberry Slush for my flowers. I can never find a marker from the 2013-2015 In-Color collection in my marker stash when I want one and then I think to myself "did I really not purchase the marker set"? So I resorted to the next closest color...Rose Red! 

Have you tried the new Venetian Crochet Trim? I am IN LOVE!!! I was sad when the 5/8" inch crochet trim retired from the last catalog. It was my go to ribbon for that certain delicate or classic look. I'm not much for vintage but this new crochet trim is GORGEOUS!!! It is even more delicate and I love the detail in the trim. I can see myself using this ribbon in many more projects!

Here are some card details:
  • card base is Baked Brown Sugar (standard A2 size 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored in the middle at 4-1/4")
  • Patterned DSP is from All Abloom Paper Stack and is cut 1-3/4" x 5-1/2". I applied Tombow Glue to the back of DSP and applied to card base, but tucked 6" of the Venetian Crochet Trim under the DSP before fulling adhering and trimmed the edges of 3/8" ribbon (trim) with my favorite ribbon scissors (aka Craft Scissors)!
  • Very Vanilla (4" x 2-3/4") and Rose Red (3-3/4" x 2-1/2") with Perfect Polka Dots embossing.
  • I colored the image from Tea Party with Rose Red, Garden Green, and Smoky Slate markers. I huffed on the rubber before stamping to remoisten the ink then cut with the Chalk Talk Framelit Dies.
  • Greeting is from Perfect Pennants inked in Garden Green and cut with Banners Framelits as well as an extra pennant in Garden Green to shadow behind the greeting. I adhered the image and pennants with dimensionals (leftover from a Paper Pumpkin kit!!)
