Bravo!! June Card Sketch with SSInk

Good Monday morning!  Its the second Monday, and you know what time it is???  It's card sketch time over at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration!  Challenge time is always a favorite time for us design team members, cause we can't wait to see what you, our followers, are gonna create along with us.  So be sure you head on over to our main page, check out the rules and play along!
So here is our fun sketch.  Lots and lots of cute little for my take on it.
So the one thing I did was flip it to its side.  I am so super excited for June to be here, because that means our new Stampin' Up! catalog has went live and everyone can now get new toys!  All what comes with new toys, but "play time" of course!  And play, I have!  I pulled out a lot of new items for this little cutie.  First I started by picking what DSP I wanted to work with to create all my little banners with.  I decided to go with, Lullaby.  Then I pulled my base color from that, Hello Honey.  I layered with baked brown sugar and embossed my white layer with the returning decorative dots folder.  I stamped "con grat YOU la tions" from the new photopolymer set, Bravo!  This is a special set, that I got to earn for FREE thru a Stampin' Up! promotion.  One of the wonderful perks of being a demonstrator with this wonderful company.  They are always giving us extra ways of earning new toys for FREE!  Now the fun part came in when I decided to do a little different with the coastal cabana twine.  I decided to braid it, kinda like a rope or someone's hair and wrap it around.  Fun idea, huh?!  Yea, I thought so too!!

On the inside, I embossed a small area, on angle, at the top and bottom with the matching dots folder.  Then I used some left over banners that I had cut out for the front and placed them at the top and bottom as well, but making sure to leave room for that hand written message that needs to go inside.

Supplies Used
Cardstock ~ hello honey, whisper white, baked brown sugar
Ink ~ baked brown sugar
Stamp Set ~ Bravo!
DSP ~ Lullaby
Misc. ~ decorative dots folder, coastal cabana twine, neutral candy dots, coastal cabana blendabilities to color the white candy dot.

Love your card! The stamp set is on my first order and what a great idea to braid the twine for a rope look.
