SFF 102811

Good morning, Friends! Are you glad it's Friday? Well, here is another reason to get excited about Friday - it's Sketch Frenzy Friday time! This week's sketch is brought to us by Tammy Fite. Take a look:

And here is what I did with the sketch:

Great sketch, huh!! So many wonderful possibilities but I really wanted to try out this bat from a piece of ribbon. Isn't he cute?! I just love how it turned out! And it was so simple! I had seen a few people make this little bat from ribbon and thought it was the cutest idea! I just took a piece of Basic Black ribbon and tied a knot in the middle and clipped the ends. Then I used the 1/4" circle punch to punch out two circles from Whisper White and I used my crop-a-dile to punch the smaller circles from Basic Black. I glued them together and then used glue dots to glue them to the bat. My card base is Basic Black with a layer of Pear Pizzazz and then three strips of Basic Black. Then I cut three squares of Peach Parfait (two smaller and one slightly bigger) and stamped the bats from Wicked Cool in Peach Parfait on the two smaller ones. The middle square is sponged with Peach Parfait and matted with a square of Basic Black. The two smaller squares are glued flat to the card and the middle, bigger square is popped up. I glue dotted my bat to the middle square and then stamped the greeting in black StazOn right underneath. Very simple!
