Freshly Made Sketches: Bright Hopes

My last card used the Stampin' Up set Bright Hopes which I used while "playing" at a friend's house.  I was visiting again today and used the same set.  I'm thinking I should put this one on my wishlist!!



The layout comes from this week's Freshly Made Sketches.  I did take some liberties with it as I needed my "door" to go all the way to the bottom of the page.

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up Bright Hopes and Tiny Tags
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Silver, Frostwood Lodge dsp
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Garden Green, Real Red
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up Tag Punch, Scalloped Circle Punch and Scalloped Border Punch, Real Red Taffeta

I bought this set and haven't even mounted it yet! I think I'm sufficiently inspired to sneak upstairs and grab it.
