Stars and Stamps Sketch Challenge #7

This week over at the OWH Stars and Stamps blog, Erika has a sketch challenge. I used an assortment of retired SU! Baja Breeze and Parisian Breeze dp's for this card. I cut the strips and embossed them with Cuttlebug leafy branch embossing folder (click the photo for detail), lining them up next to each other in the folder carefully, so the pattern is continuous. The sentiment panel was done with another CB embossing folder, and sanded lightly afterward to help the words show up a little better. The ribbon is Baja Breeze and I added a copper heart brad to coordinate with the sentiment.
I hope you're all having a fabulous Monday and enjoying some sunshine wherever you are!! Thanks for stopping by:)
