A Day To Remember

I used last Saturday's "Sketch For You To Try" as the layout for this card. If you look at the original sketch, you'll see I left off an additional embellishment. I tried and tried to get something to work there, but it just wasn't happening. But I'm happy with the overall look of the card anyway, so I'm just going to keep it like it is. I love having sketches to work with for inspiration. It really helps to get me going.

Stamps: I Brake For Stamps, Cloud 9 Design
Ink: Colorbox Chestnut, Colorbox Cocoa, Colorbox Royal Blue, PTI Dark Chocolate, PTI Hibiscus Burst, Copics
Cardstock: PTI Hibiscus Burst, SU Old Olive
DP: Debbie Mumm
Accessories: PTI Hibiscus Burst Buttons, embroidery thread
