Laura's Sketch #23

Happy Friday! I've got today and Monday off, so I'm looking forward to lots of crafting time. Plus, some of my birthday purchases are starting to roll in, so you'll start to see lots of new goodies being used.

First up is this yummy Prima I got from Two Peas. It was my starting point for Laura's sketch this week over at 2S4Y. I'm very proud of myself, because I also used up something old (dp & Purely Pom cardstock) and something hoarded (ribbon slider). And I used my MS scallop dot punch again--it's my favorite tool right now.

Stamps: A Little Birthday Cheer (SU)
Paper: Bashful Blue, Purely Pomegranate, Basic Black, SU dp
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: flower & rhinestones (Prima), scallop dot punch & ribbon (Martha Stewart), ribbon slider (The Paper Studio)
