Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to the first Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop for 2024.

This year the wonderful crew have some great themes and projects to share with you. Below is an image of where the crew lives across the globe. it is so lovely to come together in this way and share creativity.

This month we have a fun sketch to work with. I love the square design and decided my card would be square. I have been playing with the Flight & Airy Designer Series Paper that is on offer during Sale a -bration! It is gorgeous and I decided to use it for this challenge.

I started with a Misty Moonlight card base which works well with the Boho Blue in the Designer Series Paper. I cut the DSp in a square then cut it in haf diagonally before gluing it to the card base.I cut two Basic White squares for the central focus piece. One 0.5cm bigger than the other. I embossed the smaller one with the Distressed Tile Embossing folder before gluing them together.. I then adhered this to the card front using Dimensionals.

I then fussy cut the sweet bird on the floral branch from the DSP. I used GlueDots™ to adhere to the bottom right of embossed layer. I cut a 2.5cm strip of Misty Moonlight card stock and stamped the sentiment in Versamark™ink before sprinkling with White Embossing Powder and set with the Heat tool. I bannered the end using the Banners Pick a Punch. I used Dimensionals and glue to adhere to the card front. I tied a small piece of Linen thread in a bow and glued it to the sentiment layer. The final thing was to add three Boho Blue Dots around the bird.
