SRM Stickers, Silhouette and Unscripted Sketches Unite

Disclaimer - the pinks match much better in real than in this photo.  OK - back to my regular scheduled post for today.

Yesterday I had a fun day just playing with paper - decompressing from work - rough part of the year for me so anytime I can decompress helps lots.  

This card is based on the weekly sketch from Unscripted Sketches.  I changed the orientation of the rectangle and sentiment from the sketch as you can see.

I cut the white flower with my Silhouette, adhered it to the pink background.  I added the sticker and the pink background to the white accent mat and ran everything through the Cuddlebug to emboss it.  I always like the way your cutout seems to just melt into your paper.  I cut out a flower from another set of stickers after I had adhered it to a piece of paper and then pop dotted it on the center of the die cut.   I decided I needed a little ribbon on it to bring in some of the black in the sticker.

Everyone enjoy your Sunday - I am going to go into work for awhile - it is quiet and I can accomplish so much during this time.

I like it..the black and white bow sets it off very well.

I really like this effect of adding the embossing to all the parts and melding them into one. The black & white stripe is really crisp. Nice choice.

I can totally relate to how much more productive a couple of uninterrupted hours at the office can be. Hope it was worth your effort.

I know what you mean about decompressing ... so glad you took some *me* time ... love how the overall embossing really ties everything together ... glad you joined us at Unscripted Sketches.
