Tools: Big Shot, Stripes EF, Little Leave Sizzlit, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Boho Blossoms punch, 1/8" hole punch
Embellishments: 1/2" Poly Twill Blushing Bride ribbon


Next, for the sketch challenge from Paper Players this week, I made this card.

Stamp Sets: Upsy Daisy, Bring on the Cake
Ink: Night of Navy
Tools: Big Shot, Texturz Plates, Ovals Die, Wide Oval punch
Embellishments: Basic Pearls, Glimmer Brads Neutrals, Flower Fusion 2 (retired)

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!
