Sketch Challenge Time Again July 5, 2008

Filed under: Card Creations,Stamping,SU Creations — Jo @ 11:58 pm

I had time to complete this week’s sketch challenge over at 2 sketches 4 you.  This is a fantastic blog and I’m finding it really inspiring.

This week’s sketch was so pretty, I thought it would make a great  wedding/bridal card.  This is what I came up with

The card started out as being 8″ x 4″ (and fits into a standard DL envelope), however, I found it to be a bit too tall for what I wanted, so I trimmed a little off the top and it’s now 6-5/8 x 4.  I’m really enjoying making these non standard size cards.  The base is Very Vanilla and the patterned paper is from Spring Silhouettes.  The frame is from Frames with a Flourish and the sentiment (which reads now & forever) is from Occasional Greetings.  I used my Chocolate Chip marker to dot around the scallops to tie in with the frame and some Chocolate Chip 5/8″ Grosgrain ribbon.  The blue pearls are from KaiserCraft (Bliss).  I really love how this turned out!

Hope you’re all having a great weekend, thanks for looking!
