This weeks card was a little hard for me... I don't think I am in a creative funk but with everything "Summer" going on around here it was hard for me to sit down and focus! I am sure my fellow card making friends will know what I mean! Here are the details...

This card is a lovely base of Lost Lagoon. The next layer of Smokey Slate Card stock is embossed with the Zig Zag Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I then used my new 2014-2016 In Color Designer Series Paper. I chose the the fabulous new polka dot pattern in Lost Lagoon. I had a scrap of the embossed Smokey Slate so I used it with the Lost Lagoon Silky Taffeta Ribbon on the left hand side. Now, for the tag I cut the strip to make sure that it would fit in the Scallop Tag Topper punch. I then stamped the sentiment from the "Friendly Wishes" set in Versamark and then heat embossed White Stampin' Emboss Powder with my Heat Tool. I had originally made the bow using my Bow Builder Punch using the polka dot paper. It just didn't work so I reached into a stash of DSP that I have and used a piece of the All is Calm DSP which has since been retired but hey it worked! Instead of using the paper center for the bow, I ended up using a small piece of the ribbon. I popped a few Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh on the bottom right and VOILA! Done!

Thank You all for stopping in! Can't wait to see what you create with this sketch!!
Have a fabulous week!
