2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan's Sketch #52

Hello! Here's a card I created using Kazan's most recent sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You! If you're looking for some serious inspiration, head over there and check out all of the amazing creations by the participants this time around---WOW!!!

Here's the sketch (Isn't it FABULOUS?):


And here's my creation:

I was so excited to have a chance to ink up one of my most recent purchases, "Just My Type" (Lawn Fawn)!!! This was my first time purchasing stamps from Lawn Fawn, and I have to say these stamps are wonderful!! They really ink up well and leave a crisp, clean image!

Of course I just had to paper piece that cute little typewriter---couldn't resist! And I love the way the sentiments fit onto the paper in the typewriter image!! So cool!


The background paper (that looks like a notebook) is from the "Basics White Paper Pad" by Basic Gray! Love it!!!


I created some of my own patterned paper with "Background Basics: Text Style II" (Papertrey Ink). Then, I cut the scallops using the "Medium Scallop Border Die" from Papertrey Ink. I felt like I needed a little pop of color/interest among the rufflies, so I decided to add a scallop border of polka dots and a scallop of black.


I honestly visualized this card last night while I was lying in bed having a hard time falling asleep. Does that ever happen to you? When do you get your best ideas for your cards and paper crafts?

Hope you're having a SUPER DUPER week! Thanks for stopping by!

I absolutely LOVE this!
The colors are fabulous!
I actually have that same LawnFawn set too... but i've been so busy, and I just haven't gotten around to using those stamps yet. :(
You are making me want to rushhh home to break them out! Haha!
Love this card!
And yes, that does happen to me too! I get ideas out of no where sometimes, and I even often have to jot them down on a post-it note or something, otherwise i'll forget!!! Ahh! LOL
