Tuesday Morning Sketches - Still Celebrating

Hi blogger friends. We are still celebrating our birthday month at Tuesday Morning Sketches with another "oldie but goody" sketch from our past. This is our sketch for this week's challenge:

I believe the first time we used this sketch was during the fall or winter (originally #169) and the DT all did wonderful Christmas and fall cards to inspire you. This time we are in the middle of a heat wave (smile), but our talented DT members have provided equally inspiring cards to pique your creative talents!

We are also being sponsored this week by CC Designs, and I believe there is a prize of 3 digital stamps for some lucky person.

My image (Swinging Love by LOTV) is on X-Press It brand card and colored with my Copic markers. Isn't that just the sweetest image? I cut the image using a Spellbinder circle die and then cut a blue mat using the Spellbinder scalloped circle die. My two designer papers are from My Mind's Eye "Playdate" 6 x 6" pad, and the scalloped border is from the KaiserCraft "Save the Date" 6.5" square pad. I've started (as I usually do) with a white base, matted the first DP with blue card. I then cut my second DP, which I also matted with blue, and adhered the scalloped border to the bottom. The blue and yellow roses are by Recollections, and the two small red buttons are from my stash. I typed and printed "BFFs Forever" from my computer and cut it into a fish tail banner shape which I "waved" by rolling it over the barrel of my craft knife before adhering to my card.

I hope you like my colorful little card, and I also hope you will visit the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to have a look at what the other DT members have done. Then, as always, we hope we'll inspire you to join in this week's challenge. We always enjoy seeing what everyone else does with our sketches.
