for you.../Wanna Sketch #6

Happy Friday! I'm back with another post. I was on a roll last night and started two cards last night, then finished them up today. I played along with Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch #6. I love the CAS-iness of this sketch. (Is CAS-iness even a word? It is now! LOL!) Here's what I came up with:

here's the inside:

and the sketch:

I have a bachelorette party/bridal shower to go to tomorrow, so I needed to make a card for that. I finally used this super cute raindrops stamp from Unity Stamps. I mixed it with some Paper Smooches stamps. (I think it worked out pretty good!) The umbrella was stamped on white card stock and two different patterned papers, fussy cut and adhered together. The raindrops were stamped in Teal Zeal, then I used an aqua blue marker to add a hint of color to them. I liked how they looked, but still felt they needed a little more. Out came the Stickles! Woo Hoo! I'm gonna need another bottle of this soon. I seem to be using it. A lot! Used a scrap of paper to stamp the sentiment. The inside sentiment I printed from my computer. Such a cute, sweet card, but when she opens her gift, she'll be surprised with how risque' it is! LOL!

Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate and read all of them! Hope you get the chance to play along with the Wanna Sketch challenge. You have plenty of time to play, as it's open until July 20th!
