Fall to Layout #51- Take Two

Hello everyone!

This sketch may feel like a bit of a "throwback" for some of you. It features the Bigz Top Note die. For those that don't recall, this was when Stampin' Up! had just introduced carrying the Big Shot and had designed a few exclusive dies. Of course, feel free to use some other element for your card if you do not have the Top Note die.

Here's my card. Since I had to pull out an older Stampin' Up! die, I figured I would use other Stampin' Up! products with it. I used a few greetings from Bravo and some of the flowers from Flower Patch. I found my yellow base layer a little too plain, so I stamped one of the flowers from the same set repeatedly to make a nice simple pattern. 

Here's Chera's card:

Happy Sunday everyone!! Hope you had a great week!! Here's my take on this weeks sketch! Had to do a little digging to find that top note die from Stampin Up….might I add its the first stitched die I every owned! hehe!!

This card came together pretty quick (after finding the die of course). I decided to look through my patterned paper, something I don’t do often enough. I found this beautiful wood grain paper which led to me pulling out the Ellen Hutson stamp Bold blooms. I stamped the flower and leaves image then die cut them out with coordinating dies. I won’t lie it took me multiple tries to place those flowers. I even had the larger one on there as well…Once I got the layout together I pulled out a Papertrey Ink stamp “graceful greetings 2” and stamped get well. I added some wink of stella to the flowers (doesn’t show up in the picture unfortunately) 

Hope you like today's sketch and I look forward to seeing what you create!!
