Comfort Cafe CCMC253 Sketch Card

Pursuit of Happiness sentiment set is one I have used many times so I was really sad to see it on the Retirement List, but glad I do have it.  I especially like this verse I used on my card for this week's Create with Connie and Mary CCMC253 Sketch Challenge.


The Designer Series Papers are from the Comfort Cafe package.  These are great colors to create with:  Pool Party, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit.  I thought they would make a great masculine card with this sketch!



The card base is Summer Starfruit as is the 1" Circle punchout behind the Designer Naturals button.

I stamped a layer of Pool Party with the sentiment in Cajun Craze and then scored three sides with the Simply Scored Board.  Look closely and you can see that I scored the chevron paper on the vertical between each column of angles.  It is more apparent in person and gives it a little "puff".  : )


Midnight Muse Ribbon
wraps around the top of the Pool Party layer and is topped with a Naturals Button tied with Linen Thread and layered over a circle of Summer Starfruit.

I hope you will chose to use this easy sketch to make a card yourself!  Just post it on your blog or other public site on the web then link up on the Create with Connie and Mary sketch challenge #253 post!


Thanks for visiting!  Hope you get to have some stamp time soon!
