Livin' the Life!

I have had a lot of fun with the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #119 this week! It has taken me a few days to complete this card. I had actually started with another design and it was not working out. When I saw FMS, I knew I could make it work! This card is for my friend who has started the Disney College Program and I am so excited to be sending her some Disney themed cards.

I decided to flip the sketch and I also decided to try the Undefined Kit for the first time. This is a kit sold by Stampin' Up that allows to you design and carve your own stamp. I made a Spiral design. I used it to stamp a background where the Minnie head was placed. I also added it to the black and white banner as some contrast. This was a lot of fun and very forgiving. I liked the fact that this stamp wasn't PERFECT but perfect for ME!
I wanted to add a little pizazz to the sentiment so I colored the sentiment with my Stampin' Write Markers. I love how well this works. I used some circle punches for the Minnie head and hand cut the bow.

If you haven't tried the Undefined Kit yet, I suggest you give it a whirl! It opened up a whole new world for me!!
