Yippee Skippee! CCMC291

After missing out on the Create with Connie and Mary Challenge last week due to illness, it feels good to be back (and feeling better!).  This week is a cool challenge featuring a sketch which easily lends itself to a multitude of interpretations!

I chose to turn the sketch on it's side then flip the focal image to the top rather than the bottom... clear as mud?  lol!  I used this pattern from the beautiful Sweet Sorbet DSP (a Sale-a-Bration bonus product) and accented it with a strip of Summer Starfruit cardstock embossed with the new Arrows embossing folder which echoes a similar design.

"You can never have too much happy" is from the expressive sentiment stamp set Yippee Skippee; it was stamped with VersaMark then heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  I layered this Crisp Cantaloupe Starburst die-cut over a Whisper White Starburst die-cut of the exact same size and rotated it just a tiny bit so only the white points could be seen.  Next I die-cut a third same-size Starburst from Calypso Coral, cut it in equal fourths and attached them to the back, extending them from the edge a bit to accent the sentiment.  A Silver Button tied with Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine accents the bottom.  Basic Pearls colored with a silver Sharpie marker are the final accent. 

Stamps:  Yippee Skippee set
Ink:  Versamark
Paper:  Sweet Sorbet DSP (SAB); Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Calypso Coral
Accessories:  Silver Button from Basic Metal Buttons assortment, Basic Pearls, Summer Starfruit Baker's Twine (SAB), Silver Embossing Powder

Here is the sketch for this week, simple yet offering lots of possibilities:

Love how you added a larger Starburst by cutting it in fourths! Marvelous idea! Great job with the Create sketch this week! Glad you are feeling better!

I love how you made the starburst as a background behind your sentiment! So clever. Thanks for sharing. :)
