Today I have got my inspiration from the Strawberry Sketches #SS010 Challenge. When I first saw this sketch, I thought it was a bit boring & I needed a birthday card for my son's friend tomorrow, so I have been procrastinating all day about what to do with it lol but I am so happy with how this card has turned out & I just love the layout Sarah has provided as the background to this really sweet little card! I hope you like it too!
I have used a Dapper Denim cardstock base with the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack. The sky print is the front side of the dotty print & I thought it worked perfectly for this little idea of the elephant from the Lots of Love hostess stamp set with the balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set. I can't remember where I got the idea from, I spend way too much time on Pinterest haha!
So even though Dapper Denim isn't a coordinating colour of this DSP, I thought it went really well together. I have layered over the top 7cm squares of Gold Foil & Pool Party cardstock. The elephant is inked in Crumb Cake on Whisper White cardstock & fussy cut with Dimenstionals behind. I've cut the balloons using the Balloon Bouquet punch & the smaller three are also up on Dimensionals. Then I have looped the Gold Metallic Thread around the elephant's trunk & stuck it in place with a Glue Dot, covered with the little bow I've made from more Gold Metallic Thread.
On the inside, I have used a layer of Whisper White. The mouse is from the Love You Lots hostess stamp set & inked in Crumb Cake. The 2nd is from the Number of Years stamp set & also inked in Crumb Cake. The sentiment & balloons are from the Balloon Celebration stamp set & inked in Dapper Denim & Pool Party.
