Sweet Sunday 19

Sweet Sunday on Tuesday. Isn't that how it goes when you have a gorgeous Holiday weekend?
This is my take on this weeks sketch. I cheated a bit in the end adding some extra layers to help pop the images off that Paper Studio DP. I think I'm starting to get my mojo back and will try to tackle the Mojo Monday sketch tomorrow. I've just been having so much fun getting caught up on everyone elses blogs. It's so much fun to see what you've all been up to over the last few weeks. There is always so much more going on in the spring and summer that it's hard to keep up with everything. Anyway, hope you are all enjoying great summer like weather. I'm happy for every day that has sun and no snow!

Here are the details for my card: DP is The Paper Studio, black linen from Archivers, white from my stash and Groovy Guava from SU. I used 3 CB embossing folders, 2 of which were border folders. For the border folders, I brayered SU pumpkin in the folders before I embossed them on the white paper. I embossed dots on the edges of the flower border. I stamped the fruit from SU's Tart and Tangy stamp set, heat embossed them with Dazzle Versa Mark, cut and popped them with dimensionals and then added the tiny Basic Grey buttons to the centers. I really like how the border folders turned out with the brayering. I'm definitely going to be doing more of that. Inks I used were SU ruby red, pumpkin pie and Archival's bannana.

Thanks Karen for another great sketch! I'm really trying hard to find the "Clean and Simple" girl inside me, but it ain't easy:))))
