Just peachy

It's Friday! It's Friday and I'm feeling just peachy! Okay, enough of the bad humor. Sadly I think that's one of the reason's I love the Just Because Cards cartridge. I picked the peach cut to showcase today and used OCC13 sketch challenge for the format. Wow, this is #9 in the JBC series and I'm hoping to knock off quite a few this weekend so make sure to check back later. Remember, I'll be giving away all the cards I make in this series to 3 lucky blog followers. So if you like what you see than be sure to follow along!

On to the card...

This cut is a little tricky because the sizes don't correlate to the card size you want. I started cutting the peach at 5 1/4 inches and it was HUGE so 2 1/4 did nicely. For the word art I cut it using the fit to length button set at 3 inches which made the size 1 1/4 inches. Hopefully that will save some of you some wasted paper.

You can see here I used a green and apricot pen to highlight the peach as well as some lavender perfect pearls.
Okay so I've committed to using a cheap alternative to stamps and I don't know how long it will last... That's right, (or should I say write) using my little old hand to write the sentiments. I need to work on it because I hate seeing my printing but I'm much to lazy to fiddle with computers to generate them there. So if I don't have the perfect stamp, I'll do it myself!

This is the inside.

Supplies used : Cardstock: SU very vanilla, apricot appeal, green galore, bazzill bling, core'dinations whitewash Patterned: DCWV farmers market stack, Cricut, Just because Cards, Ink: green galore, apricot appeal, chocolate chip markers Bling: Ranger liquid pearls, prima flowers, SU ribbon, rhinestone brad, martha stewart punch, divine swirls folder.
