SFF 050611

Hello Friends! Are you glad it's Friday!!! I am! We will be leaving later this afternoon for Durango because Nick's soccer team is playing in a tournament down there this weekend. I am really excited because it has been a while since we have done a tournament. And the weather looks to be wonderful! But enough of that. It's time for a Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch. This week's sketch is brought to us by Sharon Field. Take a look:

And here is what I came up with:

There is a lot going on here! Not my usual style but that's what challenges are for, right? :) Anyway... I used the Strength & Hope set and started with a card base of Wild Wasabi. To that I added a piece of So Saffron that I ran through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. Then I added a piece of Very Vanilla taffeta ribbon and glued this to the card. I cut a circle from Confetti Cream cardstock using the 3" circle die. I stamped the flourish image in So Saffron several times lightly and then sponged the edges. This is popped up on the card. I stamped the butterfly in Regal Rose and then sponged the stamp with Rose Red to highlight the edges. The leaves are cut using Wild Wasabi cardstock and the Little Leaves sizzlet. I punched the little flowers with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and So Saffron and Rose Red cardstock and added some pearls. The leaves and flowers are glued down flat. The butterfly has an antique brad and is popped up. The last thing I did was to stamp the words in So Saffron on Confetti Cream and then the "Hope" in Rose Red right on top. I punched it out with the designer label punch and sponged it. I also punched a Rose Red 1 3/8" circle out to highlight the "Hope". This is popped up over the ribbon. And there you have it!

Click 'here' to see what Jennifer did with this sketch. Continue through the tour and see what the team came up with to get inspired. Then make your creation and upload it to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog so we can all see! I think the kinks are all worked out! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
