Pool Party Postage Due

Back for post number two today!  I was debating whether or not I had time to squeak in a card before the deadline for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge and decided to go for it.  This is possibly the quickest card I have ever put together.  I had a plan that was floating around in the head for a few days but sometimes execution is not always as easy as imagined.  Does that happen to you too?

However, today everything came together, and I ended up with a very clean and simple card (for me anyway!) that went together in a snap.


Here's the sketch:

I turned the sketch 90 degrees to accommodate the Postage Due stamp and used Collage Curios and Fabulous Phrases inside the Soda Pop Top for the circle.  The designer paper Botanical Gazette.  All of this was adhered to a base of textured Basic Black card stock.

I used the colors from this week's color challenge at Dynamic Duos which is Light Aqua (Pool Party) and Cherry Red (Cherry Cobbler).  I used white and black as my neutrals.

The Bitty Butterfly in Cherry Cobbler and velum card stock is popped up on the right had corner, and is topped with Basic Rhinestones.

Thanks so much for dropping by this afternoon!  I hope your week ahead brings peace and happiness.

I like how you rotated the sketch, Stef, and the sentiment looks fabulous in the Soda Pop top - great job!
