S & S Sketch Challenge #118

Happy Sunday to all of you out there in blogland.  I'm just coming to you today with a very short post for Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge found here.
Here is my entry for this challenge.


I changed it up a bit using Nestabilities Fancy Tags instead of scallops.  My sentiment is from a retired SU set and that is matted onto some Pacific Point blue cs.  The designer paper is one that I made with Alcohol Inks and the card base was embossed with a Sizzix folder that I inked up first to give it some dimension.  My photography leaves a lot to be desired today, sorry about that.   That will do it for me today.  Hope to see you again soon.Thank you so much for taking a minute to stop by and say Hello.

  1. Donna, I just saw this sketch and have a card in mind already. Love the papers you used and that you made the sentiment the focus. What a great job with the die cut tags. I may have to CASE that on my card. Thanks for the idea, my friend.

  2. You blow me away with the clever ways you use your supplies! I LOVE how you used those tags to create the borders around the image! Brilliant!! I love the weathered look of the main image panel too - it's a great take on the sketch and a cool card for OWH!!

  6. Hi Donna,
    Great idea ! Like you I also did not have the right punch, so I had to come up with something different. Good minds think alike!! It's also nice to see you have found a good way to spend this very cloudy and dreary day. I'm enjoying time in my craft room too!

    Sending Hugs and well wishes to you too!!

  15. Hi Donna, I am a bit behind on posting - I caught a cold and I haven't been doing much except making cards. I wanted to say how much I liked your card. Sometimes the sketches don't make it through my brain, lol, and it is nice to see it made up into such a terrific card. I love those stripes and the alcohol ink paper you made.
