Stampin' Up! Share What You Love

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love for FMS339

I have been sick for weeks with pneumonia so my crafting has been minimal. I'm so glad to be feeling better and able to do a few challenge cards. This one is from one of my favorite sites, 

I wanted to keep this card clean and simple just like in the sketch so I decided to use some Designers Series Paper (DSP) and a sentiment only. But once a started I quickly decided it needed a little something more. 

The DSP is from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper(DSP) Pack.
I chose Rich Razzleberry for the card base because it coordinates beautifully with the paper and the ribbon.

Once I adhered the DSP to the Whisper White card stock I felt like it needed a little something more so I decided to use the brand new 1/4 inch velvet ribbon. I used Tear and Tape to adhere the ribbon so it would lay flat. The ribbon and the paper are both part of the pre-release special bundles.. The bundle ends today May 31,2018 but the paper and the ribbon with both be in the new catalog that debuts tomorrow June 1,2018.

I wanted to add a little bling. My first choice was the silver adhesive backed rose from the Share What You Love embellishment box. The roses are only available in silver and I wanted it to coordinate so I used a Stampin' Blend alcohol ink marker to color it Rich Razzleberry. This is a quick and easy way to change an embellishment to the color of your choice.

I liked the way it turned out but it added too much bulk to the ribbon so I decided to add a few of the new Share What You Love Artisan Pearls instead of the rose.

Thank You for visiting my blog. If you would to see other cards made with this sketch, head on over to the Freshly Made Sketched website to see all the other entries in this weeks sketch challenge.
