Happy Little Stampers July Sketch Challenge

Hello and Happy July! This is my first post as a new designer for the Happy Little Stampers sketch challenge.
You can find all the details about the challenge HERE.
Here's the sketch


I started by die cutting the scalloped panel from MFT's Blueprints #20 and the working panel with Blueprints #1. This is just about my favorite combination for cards. I still get a CAS style but with added depth and interest.
The working panel of my card was embossed using PTI's Cross Stitch Cover Plate to give my card texture. The tree trunk was stamped using Simon Says Stamp "Giving Thanks" and the circles were stamped in bright fun colors using dots from PTI's Day Dreamer and Petite Pots. The sentiment is from PTI's Flower Favorites.

Be sure to stop by the Happy Little Stampers Challenge Blog to see the design team's fabulous cards and join in on the fun!
Thanks so much for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

  2. This is lovely, Birgit! It was so very clever (wicked smaht ;) ) of you to use the circles as the leaves. I wish I could have seen your lupine in bloom! Maybe some day.
