Happy May. It’s starting to get cooler, wetter and darker here in Melbourne and before too long, it will be winter. Winter is not my favourite, so I decided to whip up a card featuring some of my favourites from the catalogue – the I Am Me suite – to cheer me up. I just love that suite but haven’t used it as much as I would have liked to, so today’s the day. I also haven’t participated in a challenge for a while and one popped up in my Facebook feed that I thought I’d have a go at. It’s a Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge (PCCCS #91)….
My idea was to use one of the speech bubbles from the new Hip Hip Hooray kit as a template. I sponged around one in Pool Party for sky. I also used the hip hip hooray sentiment from the kit and the ‘away we go’ is from the Around the World stamp set which is part of the I Am Me suite. The awesome designer series paper dictated the colour scheme and the embellishment colours. I am loving the Natural 5/8″ Chevron Ribbon and it complements the starburst so well.
I will be so sad when this designer series paper retires. I must make the effort to use more in the next couple of months!
