SFF 031513

Good morning, Friends! Are you as happy as I am that it's finally Friday? Woohoo! The Sketch Frenzy Friday team has a fabulous new sketch for you all to try! This week's sketch was created by Jennifer Weide. Take a look!

After seeing the sketch, I had an idea of what I wanted to try. Then I looked in the folder and saw that Tammy had the same idea (and she has a fabulous card!). So I tried really hard to make mine different than hers. Here's what I came up with!

I adhered a piece of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper to a card base of Melon Mambo. Then I punched a flower out of a piece of Daffodil Delight with the Blossom punch. I purposefully didn't punch the whole flower. Then I carefully sponged the inside edges with Daffodil ink and drew some dashes with a Basic Grey marker to try and define the flower shape. I stamped the sentiment from Sweet Essentials in Basic Grey. Then I tied a piece of Melon Mambo 3/8" striped organdy ribbon around this and popped it up onto the card. Finally I added a flower that was punched from Melon Mambo using the Boho Blossoms punch. This is adhered to the flower center. I tied a piece of white baker's twine through a vintage faceted designer button and added it to the flower center. 

Be sure to visit the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog for more wonderful inspiration! I hope you will join us this week for some fun by uploading your creation to the site! We always love to see what you do with our sketches! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

  1. Great card and love that background paper.

  2. I like all the attention to the flower focal image. The shading around the inside edges really gave it a great look, and grey dashes are a super cleaver touch!

  3. Love the card, Deb--especially the punch out of the flower. I'll have to try this since I've never done anything like it!

  4. I love this bright and creative card you did. just beautiful! I love the patten paper you selected to work with. and the cut out of the blossom is really creative and beautiful! LOVE IT!
