SFF 121412

Good morning everyone! Are you glad it's Friday? I hope you are glad for another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge! This week's sketch was created by Patrice Herrera. Take a look!

I apologize for the blurriness. When I uploaded the sketch to my post, it was really small. So I tried to enlarge it and it became blurry. But I think you can still see the main elements. I had fun with my card! Take a look!

I decided I wanted to use my new set, Affection Collection. I guess I wanted to take a break from Christmas cards. I will get back to them, I am sure but I thought I would have some fun with a totally different look! I took a piece of First Edition designer paper and gave it a rough look with some sponging and distressing. I tore the corner away and adhered a piece of Crumb Cake to the exposed corner which was sponged, too. I stamped the word with Crumb Cake. before adhering the panel to a piece of Basic Black.This panel is then adhered to a card base of Crumb Cake which was sponged with Crumb Cake. I Then took a piece of Crumb Cake and rounded the top with the 1 3/4" circle punch. I flagged the bottom end. And then I - you guessed it - sponged it with Crumb Cake! I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the image in a random pattern and then I stamped the word in black StazOn. To the top of my tag I folded a piece of Crochet trim and adhered it to the top. Then I threaded some linen thread through the holes of a bronze button and tied a bow to the back side of it before adhering it to the trim. Then I popped the tag up onto the card. I stamped the wing/heart image onto Very Vanilla using black StazOn and cut it out. I also stamped it again using Cherry Cobbler and cut out just the heart. Again, all of these are sponged. I popped up the Cherry Cobbler heart onto the the first one and then popped up the whole image onto the tag.

More fabulous inspiration can be found on the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog! Be sure to check it out! I do hope you will be able to play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
