Wish Big on Argyle

Happy whatever is left of the weekend to you.  Today's card is based on two challenges:  Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #123 and Create with Connie and Mary Challenge #290.

I started with Whisper White card stock for the base of the card.  The sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set was stamped on Daffodil Delight card stock with Island Indigo ink.  It was then embossed with the Big Shot and the Argyle embossing folder.  A piece of Island Indigo Baker's Twine was wrapped around twice and tied in a bow.  The layer was then added to the card front.  I stamped the image from the A Round Array stamp set
on Whisper White card stock using Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate inks.  They were each punched out and attached to Smoky Slate card stock circles.  I used Dimensionals to add them to the card.  The finishing touches were Pearls in the center of each and one added over the knot of the bow.  This is a great sketch because of all the options you have for the circles.  And, super simple to put together.  Enjoy your day and stop by again.

These colors just work so great with the sketch and your element. The Argyle embossing folder just give such a great background for the elements. Thanks for playing along in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!
