You're So Sweet! JUNEGKDJK

Today's card is for yet another sketch challenge (I *so* love sketches!!), this one at the Gina K. forum. Just like yesterday's card, I stayed really true to the sketch.

I bought this Gina K. set, How Sweet It Is!, a while ago and this is my first time using it. I don't know why I waited so long - it's adorable! I love all the funky cute images and the sweet sayings! Also, I really love that $7 from the sale of each set is split between The American Diabetes Association and the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation.

You have to check out the close-up shot to see that I actually cut out another vase with flowers in its entirety (yes, even the stem!!) and raised it up just a bit with a few layers of scrap cardstock for dimension. I also did some sewing around the entire layer of patterned paper. I just love the extra little touch the sewing adds, even if it's really subtle.

You can also see that I left the Nestie in place while I airbrushed a really light yellow all over the base image. I didn't need to mask since I just covered up the whole thing with the extra vase and flowers.

Other materials used: white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; Berry Sorbet cardstock, ribbon, and ink - Papertrey Ink; Graphite Black Brilliance ink - Tsukineko; Two Scoops patterned paper - Basic Grey; Copic markers and airbrush; Nestabilities.
