Hope your day is blooming with love

I'm so excited that I finally got to play with paper again. I haven't been in my stampin station in forever it seems like. I took with me about 6 different challenges and just started playing. The first one I played with was Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch. I wanted to do something different. So, my sentiment was stamped and punched out with Stampin Up's Curly Punch. Then, I punched out 2 more in Riding Hood Red and cut them in half. Then, I just attached each half on each of the four sides. I think it turned out cute. I was even more excited because I had never seen that done anywhere else, it very well could be done by someone out there....I just hadn't seen it....so I was excited to think outside of the box on my own....I don't do that very often....ha ha ha
So, here is what the whole card looks like finished. This is a great sketch for using up scraps. I will be using this sketch again and again.

Thanks for peeking in. Have a great day.


  1. how fun! That's very clever! :) I like the card too!

  2. I haven't seen that framing technique done either, so I think you are the first, clever girl! Love all your faux stitching around the squares, very cute!
