Hello Sketch

It's a sketch this time around at Hand Stamped Sentiments and I didn't stray a bit!

Here is my card:

These colors were on my desk from a previous project and I love the trio:  Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral. 

I started with a piece of Mambo Core paper.  I used a new emboss folder, sorry name eludes me, that has quickly become a go to.  I chose to use only one design from the Six Sided Sampler set so the card didn't get too busy.

Like I said I stuck to the sketch!  I took out a couple of other framelits and punches for the sentiment and I just didn't like them.  I have to admit this Modern Label Punch was probably cheering to get some use...it's been a while!

I added the Coral bakers twine, but thought it needed something more.  I found this little bubble clip and thought it worked perfect!  Sometimes I don't like how they wiggle around, so I added a glue dot and then another on a Melon button to cover it up.

Now go over and check out the other projects.  I'm off to finish packing for our family trip to the Gulf Shores!  We leave Thursday, and I can't wait!!
