I took a little time today to work on Kazan's sketch today. I used some K&Co paper, a MM journaling tear out, a Martha felt cupcake sticker, a Hambly acetate journal spot, Bobunny green paper that I cut with my cricut into two different scallops, and I cut out some Scenic Route graph paper that I cut with scallop scissors into a circle. The letters are some Martha flocked brown ones ( small) and Around the Block gem letters- they have spaces for the gems, and came with them so i used pink and lime green. REALLY love this bright card! the background is espresso cardstock.This card I made for the USE IT challenge this week. This card turned out very busy for me- as tried to include all the challenge parts.
Challenge- use scraps, punches or diecuts, two different ribbons, and something you used to use a lot but haven't in a long time. ( my synopsis- check the site for the real wording)
I used all scraps, added some KI rubons to the strip of white going across, as well as the middle of the flowers. I punched out the circles in the middle of the flower as well as the flowers, . I used a scrap of bobunny ribbon, and a bow of DMC floss. I used bobunny love shack paper, double dot cardstock, some Scenic Route lined paper and a teeny bit of orange cardstock. I haven't used book plates in a long time, so I used this pink one here.
I used MM tiny type letters, and some AC thickers glitter letters as well.

thanks for stopping by! have a great night!
