It's a Free for All Friday!

Hi all! Just as in release week’s past — the week after release the design team hosts a free for all — where they pick up their favorite sets of the release and play with any or all! So, get ready for a feast for the eyes today! And, TODAY is the very last day to take advantage of the August New Release Bundle — when you can get all four sets for 10% off the retail price. Just click HERE to see the bundle in the store!

On to my creation!

This card started after I started playing around with my new Silhouette. I knew I wanted to use the new cut file for With Gratitude. (You can find it HERE if you want to purchase the download!) I cut out of Flourishes Classic White, stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento and then... grabbed these Copic Collections!




From there, I grabbed some scraps from my decorative paper bin, added some ribbon, some stitching, a matching button and then... using foam mount tape, I attached my main image to a shape cut thanks to Spellbinder's Lattice Rectangles.  On the blue strip, I did stamp the border from the set using Danube Blue Memento Ink. I love the look it created! 

Here's a closeup..... 
And that, my friends, is it! Now be sure to hop on over and see what the design team has in store!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have some fun plans for the weekend. This is my kids' last weekend of freedom.. School starts NEXT WEEK. I know I am going to sound like everyone else -- but I honestly do not know where the summer went! I'm praying for an Indian Summer -- so we can have some more nice weather before Old Man Winter arrives! How about you??? See you back here soon!
