Mixin' it Up!

Lately the weather has not been very spring like - it's been a little more 
like fall here which is probably why I was drawn to these papers today.

I used the sketch challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch and the theme of 
mixing two patterned papers from Seize the Birthday to inspire me.

The sentiment is a dies set from Penny Black called Celebrations. I die
cut it with early espresso cardstock and added it to some foam sheet.

TIP for diecutting sentiments with craft foam:

1- die cut the sentiment with the cardstock
2 - die cut the sentiment with the craft foam sheet and don't remove it.

3 - apply glue to the cardstock sentiment and add to the foam

4 - place a clear block on top for 10 minutes or so to set the glue

Now go check out the challenges and have some fun with them.

Happy Stampin'
and thanks so much for visiting!
