Thursdays with Lindsay

Good Morning everyone!  Just a quick post here, I've got to get the kids and myself moving.  Brendan's school orientation is this morning.

I found sketch that I really liked, so that's what I chose as my foundation for this week's card.  It's from a challenge blog called The Wild Flower Patch and it's a super sketch!  I did tweak it a little to fit my images.  What do you think?


I used the an image from the Birds and Branches set and created my own sentiment.  I used the great border punch my sister sent me, but I haven't used my Studio in a Box yet.  I still need to read the directions and figure out where I'll put it.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Milled Ivory, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard
Paper:  Recollections
Copics:  E33, E37, YR16, YR23, YR20
Tools:  1 1/4, 1 3/8 circle punchs, Arch Lattice border punch (Martha Stewart)

I hope you like the card.  Head on over to Lindsay's blog to see what she has in store for you!  Have a super day!

I love that border punch! Looks great and your sentiment is perfect! I hate my handwriting when I try to write on my projects, that is why I always do computer generated journaling and such. but yours looks great!!!
