Wednesday Sketch Challenge

I just LOVE this layout for this weeks SplitCoastStampers Wednesday Sketch Challenge. It was very fun and very easy to do too!

I did my words on the computer. I print out a full sheet of these so I can just punch them out as I need them.

I started out with the base of the card being a half sheet of Basic Black card stock. Then I layered a piece of Very Vanilla on top of that. I did run the vanilla through the Dotted Swiss Cuttlebug folder first. The Real Red piece was also run through the Dotted Swiss folder. The smaller layer (#3) is a piece of the new Stampin' Up! "Sending Love" specialty paper. Such a pretty sparkly piece of decorative paper. This whole pack is full of glittery papers. I tied a Real Red satin ribbon around the layers (this was done before that final large vanilla layer (#1) was taped on top of the black card stock. I tied a bow separately and taped it in place.

The words were punched out using the 1-1/4" circle punch, the red behind it is a 1-3/8" circle and then the scallop punch was used on the black piece. I taped it in place and was happy with the way it looked. That doesn't usually happen. But this time I did like how this card turned out. I think it's the decorative paper that sets this card off!

It's a pretty basic and simple card. Play with this sketch if you have time, it's SO worth it.

I have some fun things to show you starting Saturday. I will be attending the quarterly Stamp Share and I have some new things I will be demonstrating and then posting on here. It's killing me to not show you now but I want to have everything new and fresh for the Stamp Share. So stay tuned!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
