Welcome back to the Paper Crafts Crew Challenge! This week we have a sketch challenge:
I decided to get a jump on this challenge on Easter Sunday, which was a beautiful day, very relaxing, because there was no driving to do other than going to church and back and going to get coffee with Emily. I got to watch a movie with Laurel too. And cook a big dinner. Nice day.
Something big happened this weekend, which I decided to tie into my card. See if you can guess. Lookie:
GOJUS! And congratulations to April the giraffe, who we all watched (or some of us did) waiting for that baby, who finally came Saturday! I decided to go with a muted color palate from a 6 x 6 pad I have from Carta Bella.
I stamped this cutie with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored him with Prismacolor pencils. I was excited to find this orange gingham washi tape was a fairly close match to the patterned paper from the pad.
The greetings are from the Simon Says Stamp It's a Secret set. I was looking for some kind of embellishment for the upper corner of the kraft mat, and I hit on doing faux stitching with a gel pen and paper piercer to mimic the cross stitches on the circle.
I put a mint-colored button in the upper right corner because I didn't want anything really contrasty.
Then there is this cute Kaisercraft wooden embellishment!
