{ippity} Where You Should Be

Hi there! It's Wednesday, so that means I get to share a new Ippity card with you today! Today I used a set that I haven't used before - Where You Should Be. I just love the quotes and simple images in this set.

I used this week's Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #123 for the layout. This is also for the current 1-2-3 challenge on the Ippity Challenge blog - 1 stamped sentiment/image, 2 colors of cardstock, and 3 patterned papers. My card fits perfectly!

I stamped my image in Memento Tuxedo Black and did some sponging around the edges. I layered it on a scalloped square. This beautiful patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye A Happy Heart 6x6 paper pad. I love these papers!!

I punched out the border with the EK Success Arbor border punch, and I added some Papertrey Ink ribbon and some felt flowers that I made using the My Favorite Things rolled roses dies. I was afraid my flowers might look a bit out of place there, but I was trying to follow the sketch, so I hope it turned out okay!

I know that the other lades on the I Heart {ippity} design team have beautiful things to share with you today, so be sure to hop over there and see all of the inspiration. Don't forget to check out Heather's {ippity} stock while you're there!

Have a great day!! :)
