2 Sketches 4 You Bonus Sketch

You all are amazing! I can't tell you how much your comments have meant to me concerning my new venture! I really can't wait to show you all my first set. January seems so far away! However, sneak peaks will be coming right after Christmas! Thanks again... you've all made my month! And I'll pick a winner on Thursday.

It's been awhile since I've done a 2 Sketches 4 You sketch, and I knew I wanted to use one of my Hambly Screen Prints overlays. I thought Ashley's bonus sketch would work really nice. Here's her sketch:


And here's what I came up with (and check out all that color):


 
Cardstock: Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Pattered Paper: Aqua Mist Bitty Box Basics (Papertrey Ink); Twigs & Weeds (Hambly Screen Prints)
Stamps: Thanks (American Crafts)
Ink: Onyx Black VersaFine (Tsukineko)
Ribbon: Aqua Mist Twill (Papertrey Ink)
Buttons: Lemon Tart (Papertrey Ink)
Die Cut: Large Rectangle Nestability (Spellbinders)

I started with my folded 5.5"x4.25" card base, die cut my rectangle with my Nestability (use a craft knife if you don't have a die cut). Then I adhered my overlay to the back and embellished from there.

Just a few other things I wanted to mention about my blog redesign. You can now search my blog. Just type in whatever you are looking for! I've tried several searches and they all worked great!

Also, I've added a contact me button. If you ever have any questions about a project or if your just curious about something ... please don't hesitate to email me!

That is so cute! I think after I finish with my mini album I'm working on I'm going to start making some cards to give as a gift and use your sketch. Have a great rest of the week! :)

Awesome card!! Love the color combo and the cut out window! Btw, thanks for stopping by my blog, Courtney :) The pattern on the toothpick was very simple achieved by rolling them over an inked woodgrain stamp.
