S & S Sketch Challenge #106
Hello - My card today is for the Sketch Challenge over at Stars and Stamps. I was very happy to see this sketch this morning because my mind immediately went to work and I knew exactly what I wanted to do. That doesn't always happen. LOL I used SU's Certainly Celery cs as my card base. The paper is from a pack of paper that I got at The Christmas Tree Shop and it does not have a manufacturer's name on it. It was another one of my great finds this past week, 48 beautiful sheets of paper for just $4.99. Anyway my strip was made by punching both sides of a strip of SU's Lavender Lace cs with a MS punch and then adding this pretty little ribbon that has been in my stash for years. As you can see I used the same punch for my end strip. The image is this beautiful dogwood from Gina K Designs set titled Dogwood and Butterfly. I can't say enough about this set. I just think it is gorgeous. I colored it with Copics and cut it out with a scallop circle Nestabilities die. It is not showing up in the picture, but the flower center was finished off with Yellow Stickles. I popped it up for some added dimension. I used my new Corner Chomper on both the card base and the punched strip. I decided to leave this one without a sentiment, but I think it would, maybe, make a nice Mother's Day card. Well I suppose I should get something done around the house today so I'm off for now. See you tomorrow. Thank you for spending some time here today. It's greatly appreciated.
