TST #78

It's Tuesday again.  Boy time flies by and now we are into August.  Half of the summer gone already?

It's Tuesday again and time for Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Jen is back this week with another great sketch.  I hope you like what I have come up with. 

So first off I must give credit to Kristen Conant for my colour selection.  Kristen has made a couple of cards lately in this colour combination and I just love it so...Thanks Kristen.  

I started by cutting down a tag purchased at Staples.  and then blended in the Old Olive and Concord Crush across it.  stamped the writing and ink spots from the French Foliage stamp set and Bammed out a leaf from the same set.  Ok I know you are asking what do you mean Bammed?  I first inked up the stamp with the Old Olive but wanted a hint of the Concord Crush to come through as well so I quickly hit the stamp onto the Concord Crush pad.  Bam!  Then once the leaf was cut out I sponged over it with the two colours and ran it through the crimper a few times.  Using Dimensionals I adhered it to the tag and then using Dimensionals again I adhered the tag to the card front.

The sentiment is from Bring On the Cake and I split the "wishing you a wonderful day" sentiment and only stamped the "wishing you" part on the card front.  With my Old Olive pen I added 3 small dots and on the inside I completed the sentiment and then added the "Happy Birthday" below that.

I hope you like what I have come up with, now pop on over and see what the rest of the Design Team as in store for you.  Don't forget to give the sketch a try for yourself and post your accomplishment on the site for me to see.
