Happy Hellos (SC182)

Today's Sketch Challenge was a tough one for me for some reason. I had a hard time deciding what to put in that center square. Since the motifs are circle designs within squares, that's what I decided to do.

I went to a thread on SCS where you can get stamped images from other people; then, you post your list of stamp sets and someone will "snag" something from you. I did it twice; one was for a Riley image that will be great for next St. Patrick's Day, and the other I can't even remember because it never was sent to me. The lady who sent the Riley images included a couple of scalloped and embossed shapes probably done with Nestabilities which I don't have. One of the shapes was the scalloped square in the middle of this card. I cut a 2" X 2" square to go in the center of the die cut piece and sponged it with Groovy Guava. I stamped the sentiment with Close to Cocoa and punched it out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch. I used the Scallop Circle Punch to punch out a Groovy Guava piece to use as a mat. The scalloped circle is popped up and the scalloped square is also popped up. I got those motifs with a bunch of scrap booking stuff that I got on eBay several years ago. They just happen to go well with Groovy Guava and Close to Cocoa card stocks!

This looks fantastic!! Love the colors! I've seen that thread on SCS but was afraid to get involved. I had purchased the lg Nesties and will be picking up the sm sets on Friday so you'll be seeing more of those on my gallery I'm sure.
