LFL June kit and TMS

It's been ages since I've played along at Tuesday Morning Sketches, but this week's sketch appealed to me. In addition, it was the perfect starting point for breaking in my June 2020 Love from Lizi kit, which was chock-full of ephemera pieces, such as this sweet girl and her cat.

I started with a strip of one of the 6x6 patterned papers included in the kit and added pink peel-off strips, also from the kit. To counterbalance the pink, I used Bellini ink (CP) to stamp a wavy border (PTI) on either side of my PP strip.
To keep my card CAS, I did not add an extra layer of PP. Instead, I embossed a line around the perimeter of the card using my Scor-buddy. I stamped a sentiment from the stamp set from the kit onto a die cut banner and popped up my sentiment and ephemera piece using foam tape. I had also added a bit of extra colour to the image using coloured pencils.

I'm playing at:

TMS #560

NBUS - #15 Anything NBUS goes

Allsorts - #578 So cute
