Time for a Sketch For You To Try

Well, hello June 1st!  Only one more week of school here for our girls, and then it will be Six Flags, the community pool, library, and hanging out time for us, along with a couple of camps and fun excursions we've got lined up and "on repeat" for the next couple of months.  I have to say, I'm looking forward to it!

As with every "first of the month", it's time for another SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY from REVERSE CONFETTI.  Here's a look at the sketch:

And here's a closer look at my card that follows the sketch almost "persactly"!:

I wanted to make a "quiet" kind of card (and look, blue again!), and use one of my new favorite stamp sets from REVERSE CONFETTI, GOD IS GOOD.  So I started by stamping the sentiment on the circle from CIRCLES 'N SCALLOPS.  The horizontal border was made by layering a few pieces together, including the yellow DOUBLE EDGE SCALLOP BORDER Confetti Cut.  Once I layered that onto the SHAKERS AND FRAMES square, I made some fun trees as my embellishments.  The tree trunks are cut using the BRANCH OUT Confetti Cuts and then the foliage I cut from different greens using the large flower from the PETALS 'N POSIES Confetti Cuts.  A sweet cloud from SUN 'N CLOUDS is tucked to the back to complete the scene. 

I can't believe that Lindsie will be a freshman in high school come this fall.  I'm definitely going to have to keep this sentiment in mind as she starts this new chapter.  Seeing everyone's kiddos graduating this year is really making me realize she'll be done with these last four years of school in the blink of an eye! 


SUSIE Q-TIP:  I really can't think of anything special about this card that stands out.  It's pretty straightforward, just like the sketch.  Speaking of the sketch, why don't y'all give it a try?  You could be our next 'Fetti Fan and win yourself a $20 Gift Certificate to REVERSE CONFETTI.  HERE'S where you can find all the details on that!
