Paper Crafts Go-to-Gal & Friends Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Hop! My friend, fellow Cover Girl and ever so talented Go-to-Gal: Jessica Witty, has asked me to join her and her friends in today's Paper Crafts Go-to-Gal & Friends Blog Hop. To celebrate the release of the brand new and fantastic special issue called Go-to Sketches. If you haven't seen this issue yet, I highly recommend picking up a copy for your self as soon as possible! You can find it here. Also, be sure to stop on by the Paper Crafts Connection blog for a chance to win an issue and to join in on all the exciting festivities happening this week. As you probably already know, this issue is filled with 66 fabulous sketches all designed by the 6 Paper Crafts Go-To-Gals. Today I created a card based off of the sketch below, which was created by Jessica Witty her self!...
Here is my take...
I didn't stick to the sketch exactly, I made a few minor changes here and there, but any of the changes made were based off of the original sketch. Stamped the largest label (from Vintage Labels) in New Leaf on to Kraft cardstock and then textured it using the Picnic Plaid Impression Plate. The flower is my take on the rectangular element, cut the layers using Beautiful Blooms II #2 Die Collection (2 large & 1 medium), stamped Sweet Blush polka dots (from Polka Dots Basics) and topped it off with a button and silk ribbon. Here's a fun little tip: using Copic markers, color white silk ribbon to create a perfect match to your projects. The leaves are supposed to be the three embellishments pictured on the left in the sketch, used the leaf dies from Delightful Dahlia Die Collection to cut them from New Leaf cardstock.

This card ought to work perfectly for a wedding or a new babies arrival.

There is plenty more to see! Check out what Jessica and her other buddies have created:
And here are the other Go-To-Gals:

Enjoy the hop and thanks for hopping on by!
