I was creating in the wee hours of the morning after getting off work last night... wanting to play along with the unique sketch over on the CAS(E) this Sketch blog! I was also thrilled to see a good cyber friend - Petra - as their guest designer. I'm a big fan of her card making style, so a big congrats to her!
I'll have to say I was stumped at first with knowing what direction to take with this design, but this is what I finally came up with!
I don't have any huge letter dies, so went with washi tape for the slightly angled element. Had some extra Pretty Little Peonies (WPlus9) die cut flowers and leaves from a previous project, so quickly did some 3 step stamping and popped them with foam dots. Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana CS (SU) was used to layer the main panel. The sentiment is from WPlus9's Whole Lotta Happy set.
It's a day off work for me and I plan on traveling across the mountain to a berry farm to "pick" some strawberries again. No...I won't be on my knees. I'll be picking the basket up off the table - lol! Tonight I'll be going to the memorial service for a nurse who worked 2nd shift with me. She tragically took her life after severe depression set in while coping with a lymphoma diagnosis. This has really taken the wind out of us at work to say the least! To walk in one day and have this told really blindsided us all! I'm a crier, so this service will be a difficult one. Thanks for hearing me vent a bit today.
