SFF 030212

Good morning everyone! Thank goodness it's Friday! Are you ready for a great weekend? I am going to be visiting my friend Sherry this weekend! I know we are going to have a great time! Well, I hope you are ready for a great sketch from the Sketch Frenzy Friday team! This week's sketch was provided by Patrice Herrera. Take a look at this cute sketch!

A lot of different elements that took me a while to figure out what I might do. But then an idea came to me and here is the result!

I have seen quite a few projects that have these cute banners on them made from designer paper. So I went with that! I used the Everyday Enchantment designer paper to make my banners and attached them to linen thread and then to the card base of Very Vanilla. I ran a piece of Calypso Coral through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder and attached that to the card. Then I stamped the greeting from Outlined Occasions onto Very Vanilla in Soft Suede. I colored in the images with Pool Party, Calypso Coral and Poppy Parade markers. This is popped up onto the card. I cut two stars using the Stars #2 die and Pool Party card stock. I put a silver brad through the smaller one and both are popped up onto the card. Super simple!

I hope you find time to play along with us this week! Be sure to upload your creation to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog so that we can all take a look! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
