SFF 093011

Good morning, Friends! Thank goodness it's Friday!! I can't believe that it is the last day of the month! Where did it go? We are headed out of town for a soccer tournament in Vail. I am looking forward to it! The fall colors should be gorgeous! I better remember to bring my camera! So it is time for another super fun challenge from the team at Sketch Frenzy Friday! This week's sketch is brought to us by Patrice Herrera. Take a look!

I told you it was super fun! Here is what I came up with:

I got my color scheme from the Color Coach. I really like these colors together and I wanted to use the hot air balloon set - too fun! I started with a card base of textured Not Quite Navy. The I added layers of Poppy Parade and a piece of Sahara Sand designer paper along with two strips of Poppy Parade. Then I made my tag of Not Quite Navy with a layer of Sahara Sand that was run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and sponged on the edges. I punched a hole and threaded a piece of Poppy Parade poly twill ribbon through and tied it off with some linen thread. The tag is popped up onto the card. I stamped the greeting from the Up, Up & Away set in Not Quite Navy onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1 3/8" circle punch. This is popped up onto the tag. Then I stamped the balloon basket in Sahara Sand, The balloon in Not Quite Navy and the strip of flags in Poppy Parade onto Whisper White and then cut them out. The pieces were put together with glue dots and then popped up onto the tag. And there you have it!!

So now it's time for you to go and see what Jennifer has done with this fabulous sketch! Click 'here' to go and see her creation.
