Thinking of You / ESS Sketch #40

This week seemed to have flown by and I was disappointed not to have had time to complete this card I started and finished in parts.

This is my take on this sketch:

Needless to say, I am too LATE to properly participate in this week Eat Sleep Stamp ESS Sketch #40 ; but I really do enjoy playing with ESS sketches and the group of very creative people who join regularly; so even though it is late, I am glad I played :) This past week, Tracy Clemente had a really FUN sketch that consisted of tag element! :) Not sure when the last time I used a tag on a card, so it was FUN to do so on this one!

I immediately thought of my Cricut and honed in on the Wedding cartridge and this tag with a swirl - so I gave it a try! :)

In keeping with the swirl idea; I chose this Inkandinkado Collage Expression set and this birdie stamp with swirls sitting on a branch; I used my new atyouspica soft colors to match the shimmer of the background paper. This card is a little outside my comfort zone, but I am happy with the results :)!

Have a good weekend!
