Hello flower for case this sketch

Four You for Unscripted Sketches

Hi Everyone.  Happy Monday.

A very quick post for you tonight.  I wanted to share a card I made for unscripted sketches.  I LOVE this sketch.  For my card I turned it on the horizontal instead of the vertical.

Isn't that a great sketch?

I decided I would bring out some much neglected, but much loved, Summer Starfruit cardstock.  I know that this isn't a popular color, but I love it!

I paired it with my favorite SU "hello" sentiment from Four You; some Sweet Sorbet DSP and a couple of Wooden Essential Elements.   I also added some twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories SAB item.   I LOVE that all of these things work together so beautifully!

Here's my card:


I'm totally in love with this SAB paper and the fact that it's a freebie option with the upcoming Sale-a-bration is awesome.  I think I'm going to be getting some more!   I tied the Sweet Sorbet Accessories twine around the left side, embossed the "hello" from Four You inside a stamped word bubble from the "just sayin'" stamp set.  I masked off the sentiment that comes with the stamp, because I wanted just the outline of the sentiment.  I then used the Word Bubble matching framelit to cut out the sentiment.

The chevrons are from the soon to be released Wood Essential Elements, which were colored with my Summer Starfruit marker.  I adhered them to the card base using some Crystal Effects.  The perfect glue for these sorts of elements.  The whole thing was backed onto a piece of Whisper White and then mounted with double sided foam tape onto a Summer Starfruit card base.

I must admit, I was pretty happy with how it turned out!

I'll be back with another card for you tomorrow.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Great card, Jaydee! I think we're in the minority, but I happen to like Summer Starfruit, too :)
Love the use of the Wood Essentials Elements. Thanks for sharing how you colored and adhered them. And thanks for playing along with us at Unscripted Sketches!

Hi Jaydee! I love your card! So simple and delightfully cheery. The spot of blue is just the right contrast. Hope you are staying warm. We have another very cold night tonight. I've been feeding my birds twice a day and the bunny comes at night or early morning. He's eating the seed too. My heart just breaks for them in minus temps!


I'm with you, Jaydee: I am the world's greatest Summer Starfruit fan. It is so happy and soft. I can hardly wait to see this whole pack of Sweet Sorbet DSP. Great card! BTW- southern Indiana got 6 in. of snow today, and they closed down I-65. No school! Yay!


Love this Jaydee, the sentiment in blue gives great contrast x

beautiful; bright and cheerful CAS card.

Wishing you and Lou a wonderful week


True, true, I'm not a fan of Summer Starfruit, but you always make it look wonderful. :o)

I really like the contrasting color of the sentiment with the SS.

I hope you guys have a wonderful evening and day tomorrow!


P.S. Howday Lou!
