SFF 091611

Good Friday morning everyone!! It's a great day to do a challenge! Sketch Frenzy Friday has a super fun sketch challenge! This week's sketch is brought to us by Tammy Fite. Take a look:

So many wonderful possibilities for this one! But here is what I finally came up with:
I just had to use a new set of mine, Lean on Me. I love the sentiments in the set and I love the cute little kiddos! This set makes the easiest cards - ever! There isn't a whole lot of detailed coloring on these stamps. Love them!! And because the images are so simple, I decided to keep my card very simple as well. So I started with a card base of Confetti Cream and then cut another piece of Confetti Cream a little smaller and ran it through the Big Shot with the Stripes embossing folder. I glued this to the card base. For the focal point I stamped the image in black StazOn on a piece of Confetti Cream. I used Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Crumb Cake, and a little Blush Blossom to water color the image with my aqua painter. Then I took a piece of Not Quite Navy card stock and cut an oval with the ovals die. The image piece is glued to the oval and then popped up on the card. Since I already had my sentiment stamped as part of the focal point, I used three gold brads to finish it off (these were actually put on the striped piece before it was glued down - can't have those brad "butts" poking out the back). 

Now it is time for you to move along the tour to see what Jennifer has come up with this fabulous sketch! So click 'here' to move to her blog.
