Blogger's Challenge #93: Sketch


I've joined a group of stampers who participate weekly in a "Bloggers Challenge". It can take many forms; this week it is a sketch challenge, and I really like those. Here is the sketch:

For my card, I use a 6" x 6" piece of Rose Red card stock folded in half to make a 3" x 6" card, a great size. I chose the yummy Raspberry Tart Designer Paper to layer on that, then the wide Rose Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, which coordinates beautifully.

For the focal point I die cut four flowers with the medium flower on the Sizzix Daisies #2 die, three in Pretty in Pink and one in Cameo Coral, colors found in the DSP. I die cut one small daisy in Pretty in Pink for the top layer. I used a pewter Build-A-Brad for the flower center with a 1/2" punch of the same DSP used on the card.

The sentiment is from the Chit-Chat Rub-Ons package which has probably a couple of hundred sayings ready to be applied to your project! I'm really using and liking those!

For the three small embellishments I made small circles with my Signo White Gel Pen then spooned Dazzling Diamonds glitter onto them. I discovered that the glitter sticks to the gel and when it dries, it's permanent!

I am honored to get to participate in the Blogger's Challenge. You can click here to go to other player's blogs and see what they've made for today's challenge.

Thanks for visiting! Have a good day and some fun stampin'!
