Hey Chic-A-Dee


I made this card using both the sketch and round top tag above from Dahlhouse Designs (http://dahlhouse-designs.com/). The paper is K& Company Susan Winget Nature Specialty Paper and it measures at 5.50 x 4.25" after using a DCWV Greens Stack card to get the right measurements. I had the hardest time finding paper, well deciding which paper to use for this card! Then I couldn't decide on which stamp to use so I ended up looking for all my clear stamps in my stash and put them all in my SSD binder so I will have them altogether! I decided to use "Hey Chic-a-Dee" Skipping Stones Design (SSD) stamp as the sentiment stamped with VersaFine Black Onyx Pigment Ink. I used my 2x2 CTMH mounting block for the stamp. I use it or my 6.50x1 CTMH mounting block for all my clear stamps. The green strip is a piece of the same PP as the card, the bling is from my stash as is the ribbon-Bobbin Ribbon, and the bird is Doodlebug Designs Braddies Birdies that I just found in something that I won from a blog hop at one time. It's amazing what you find just looking through your stash! LOL! I found a cupcake stamp that I forgot about as well! I might use it soon on a card or layout. I'm going to enter this card at Dahlhouse Designs and you can as well until Friday, October 18 (11:55pm PT) at (http://dahlhouse-designs.com/2013/10/13/10-13-13-wanna-sketch-reminder/)! TFL and have a great week!
