SFF 012111

Good Friday morning everyone! Are we glad it's Friday? I know I am! But I just can't believe how fast this month is going! I feel like I am caught up with the challenges and I barely turn around and I have to get ready for the next week! So here we are again, with another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge. The sketch is brought to us this week by Melissa Hedine-Tootle.

Isn't this an awesome sketch? Just like yesterday, this sketch offers so many wonderful possibilities! So clean and simple! Just the way I like it!

So for my card, I started with a Blushing Bride card base. Then I took another piece of Blushing Bride and stamped the Medallion stamp in the corner with Blushing Bride ink. Then I took the "Happy Birthday" greeting from Bring on the Cake stamp set, and stamped it on top in Early Espresso. Then I took a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock and trimmed it with my Tasteful Trim die to get the scallops and layered it on the Blushing Bride panel. Then I layered that onto a piece of Early Espresso and popped it up on the card base. And the final touch was a flower punched from the itty bitty shapes punch pack in Pear Pizzazz and scrunched up. It is stuck onto the card with a glue dot. A basic pearl finishes it all off.

Super easy! Now it is time for me to send you on to Jennifer's blog to see what she has done with this sketch. Once you tour through I do hope that you will find time to join us and make a project using this sketch. Then upload it to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog so we can all see! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
