Wednesday Sketch Challenge

Fortunately I had time to play with the Wednesday Sketch Challenge. My car is back in the shop (again, hopefully they'll get it right this time - 4th time is a charm?? LOL) so needless to say, I'm stuck at home today. I suppose I could be cleaning something but it's not quite as fun as stamping is!!! LOL

I have been having LOTS of fun lately with the sketches that have been posted. And I know, I've made a lot of cards using this Stampin' Up! "Kind & Caring Thoughts" set. It's just such a fun set to play with. I found some other fun layouts for this set that I'm going to have to play with too. I will try to give this Rich Razzleberry color a rest for a bit. As much as I LOVE it I should move on to another color!!! No promises there though!!! LOL

For this card I did use the Cuttlebug "Dotted Swiss" folder. I sponged all the edges of the card stock except for the black of course!!!.

The flower was done using VersaMark and clear embossing powder. I sponged over the flower after it was heat set.

I taped a piece of ribbon to the back of the Rich Razzleberry piece on the card. Then I taped that to the black layer. After it was in place I took a small piece of ribbon and tied the bow.

The "Thank You" was from a custom stamp I had made for me. It fits in the oval perfectly and I will never retire it!! LOL

The original sketch does not show that oval piece but that area seemed to need a bit of "something" and that was just what it was calling for!!!

Now it's going to go out in the mail tomorrow to a very special friend of mine. It's a little late in being sent out but what's new in that area of my life lately?? LOL

If you have time go play with these sketches at SplitCoastStampers. Some of them really give you a way to use those scrap pieces of card stock and decorative papers!!! Gotta LOVE that!! I know I do! Especially now that I've been using them and not hoarding them!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
