Tuesday Morning Sketches #545

Hello - thank you for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and this one was brought to us by Andrea.  It's a tall and skinny card although I made mine as a landscape card.

I have to admit this one was tricky for me - I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with all the elements on the card.  So I guess, technically I missing one of the elements which is the pink middle element (see sketch on TMS).

I love this card though.  It took me a while to figure it out - what I wanted to do.  I even went to Pinterest and couldn't mind much inspiration.  But after wearing my thinking cap for an hour and a strong cup of coffee (I blame this on Daylight Saving) I came up with my idea.

I did want to emboss the blue panel but it doesn't fit my Cuttlebug or Big Shot.  I won't use my Gemini because it's too much pressure - embossing tears the paper.  So it's a bit more plain than I wanted.  The clouds are from a stencil by MFT Stamps, the dies are from a small die monthly kit by Spellbinders and the sentiment is from Raisin Boat.

Thank you again for your visit and we'll see you over at the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog.   Be sure to leave the team some love!

Oh my goodness Melissa you never fail to use some kind of cool technique on your cards and I feel like you’re not really missing the element with the cloud background behind the front panel. You make me want to get in my room and start stamping again right now this turned out really wonderful
