More of You--#tgifc220

Have you noticed?  I have been in vintage/fussy cutting heaven the last few weeks.  I am loving the beautiful vintage look of the designer series papers Bird Ballad and Pressed Petals.  They each have some wonderful images perfect for fussy cutting.  Today, I fussy cut a few images from the Bird Ballad designer series paper and created a card inspired by this week's TGIF Challenges sketch challenge.

The card base is Crumb Cake stamped with a blossom image from Free as a Bird stamp set.  The background for the bird and flower images is Calypso Coral card stock embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.  Before running the card stock and folder through the Big Shot, I used a brayer to ink the inside of the folder with Soft Suede ink.  This gave the card stock a bit of a vintage patina.  I also used the brayer to ink up the edges of the piece as well as the layer of Petal Pink card stock underneath.  Before placing the bird image, I wrapped a piece of Petal Pink striped organdy ribbon around the card stock and taped it in the back.  

I used a Sponge Dauber to sponge Soft Suede ink around my fussy cut images to give them a soft edge and a little dimension.  The greeting is from the Free as a Bird stamp set and was stamped in Early Espresso then fussy cut to place on the card.  A few Basic Pearls finished the card.

Be sure and check out the TGIF Challenges blog here to see some wonderful projects by the design team and by those who submit entries for the challenge.  You're sure to get loads of inspiration for using several different stamp sets.  Here is this week's sketch:

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by--Sara Nell
