SFF 072211

Good Friday morning! Time for another great sketch challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday! This week's sketch is brought to us by Tammy Baldwin! Take a look!

Now, I have the hardest time with the diamond shape in my creations. I have a hard time getting them even and straight and centered. But something came to mind and here is what I finally came up with. Check it out!

Not too bad, eh! I am very happy with how it turned out! And may I say that I am SO thrilled that the cupcake set and punch are in the new catalog! Love them both!! I started with a card base of textured Wild Wasabi. Then I cut a square of designer paper from Just Add Cake and a square of Peach Parfait. The Peach Parfait square went through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and then got sponged. I also wrapped a piece of Baja Breeze narrow taffeta ribbon around that. Then it was popped up on top of the designer paper. On scrap Whisper White I stamped the bottom of the cupcake in Early Espresso and the top in So Saffron and then punched them out with the cupcake builder punch. These are popped up on the Peach Parfait square. Then I took the greeting from the same stamp set and stamped it in Early Espresso on Whisper White. This is layered on Peach Parfait that was notched on the ends and glued to the bottom of the card. The last thing I did was to punch a flower from Baja Breeze with the itty bitty shapes punch pack and add a rhinestone. There you have it!
