It's time for another sketch challenge from the talented Nicole Watt.
It took me a few tries to get a card that I felt met the challenge. But, I was able to use lots of new product and I believe that my card fits the challenge. What do you think?
The Best year Ever Designer Series Paper – (free with a $50 purchase before taxes & shipping) is just the ticket for a bright & vibrant card. With the variety of colors in the patterns, it makes it easy to pull accenting colors for other elements of my card.
For example, "thanks" was cut from a piece of Calypso Coral Cardstock using the new Hello You Thinlits Dies. These thinlits are available as a bundle with the Crazy About You Stamp Set. "Just Sayin'" can be found in this stamp set and it is what helped me to get by the most challenging part of the sketch. After stamping the words with Soft Suede Ink, I matted them with scraps of Calypso Coral c.s.
"Thanks" is matted on a piece of Whisper White c.s. that was stamped with several images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set. For this piece, I again used Soft Suede Ink but I stamped off for a lighter image.
After matting the above image with Crushed Curry c.s. that matches my card base, I attached a colorful Coastal Cabana Button that can be found in the Best Year Ever accessory Pack. Best part, you can earn this accessory pack for free during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order not including taxes & shipping.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Remember, if you have any questions about my card, I am only an email away.
