Card Sketch Fun

Happy Day friends!  I hope you're all enjoying the season and getting into the holiday swing of things.  I'm woefully behind but hey...I'm still here so that counts for somethin'.

This month was my turn to create the sketch for the December Card Sketch Challenge on the Club Scrap Forum!



This was the sketch I created!

It's a great sketch to use up leftover cut-offs, ribbons, border strips, etc.

And here's what I created....



This card actually utilizes two different pattern papers from the Girlfriends kit.  The first is the flower/chevron paper - so easy to cut short strips from the paper.  They were mounted onto the blue background which amazingly enough already had the horizontal dot stripe!  That stripe looked to me like a piece of ribbon which worked out perfectly!  The sentiment was stamped with Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer ink (really beautiful IRL). 



My second card uses materials from the Paradise kit including a piece of flamingo ribbon, hibiscus border strips and some fun stamps.  The images were stamped using a variety of Memento Dye Inks and I finished it off with a bit of ribbon.

A bit later this month I'm going to share a couple Christmas cards I made using this sketch as well.

Also, several people have asked about the technique calendar which I usually start in January sometime.  I have already started planning and I think I'm going to start it a bit early - shortly after Christmas so if you'd like to play along be on the lookout :)

    1. WHEW! I'm glad it's fixed. I saw them just fine but apparently nobody else could. I deleted the pics (I could see) and added again. Thanks Melanie!
