Sketch Challenge





Hi there, I decided to work with a sketch from Priscilla's website-loved the challenge. I started this card by using my Scor-Pal to create the background. I then sanded the cardstock (CTMH) to expose the white core with a sanding bar. I then pulled out some of that reliable, lovely, elegant paper by Anna Griffin. It coordinated beautifully with CTMH's Chocolate cardstock. Now this challenge required a tag. Well, I knew that I didn't want to cover up much of this paper, but I did want to use it for the challenge. So, I decided to create a tag using a coordinating transparency by Anna Griffin. I used my big shot and flower die to create the flower and added an antique brad along with some ribbon from the ribbon stash. This was a happy ending-loved the sketch and loved the final product. Join me in the next challenge. Hugs, K
