Brighter Days! C4C, Sketch, and MORE!

Happy Saturday!   It is time for another Crazy 4 Challenge with the Crazies!   Check out the C4C blog for more challenge details with the crazies at Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C177).  

It is the 3rd Saturday of the 
Month so it is  
Sketch Crazy Saturday!

For my card I am using Verve's newly released Surely Goodness  and Calendar Countdown stamp sets along with Brighter Days, Swan Song, Borderline, and Learning to Sail stamp sets.   I am also using  Verve's Cut Above Goodness Flowers die, Mini Bookplate die set, Scalloped Trim Trio die, and Starry die. 

I stamped the focal image floral background in harvest gold ink using one of the larger flowers in the newly released Surely Goodness stamp set and die cut it with the coordinating Goodness Flowers die.  I then stamped the sentiment over top.  For the mini bookplate die, I stamped the coordinating frame using aqua mist and the numbers 24 and 7 from the new Calendar Countdown set.  I needed a backslash to make it look like 24/7.  I used one of the legs from the Swan Song for this look.  I did the numbers and backslash in Memento Love Letter red.  I once again used some harvest gold ink to stamp the sun from Learning to Sail behind it.  

I finished my card with Verve's Spring Fling Ribbon Collection in Sunshine!   

Check out what the rest of the team did with this week's challenge!
