Saturday Sketch Challenge

It's time for another fabulous sketch from the wonderful operators at stamping 411.

I admit that I didn't make my card until tonight, and I had 20 minutes from the time i finished prepping for my class tonight and the time when my guests arrived. Within that time, I made this card, photographed it and had it named and in the right folder for posting.

As I was making this card I thought that the whole think might end up being made from one sheet of whisper white card stock, but when I got to the top layers I decided to add some Designer Paper from the mini catalog.

My Base layer is 4 1/4"" x 11", scored at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 x 5 1/4"
Layer 3: 2 x 4"
Layer 4: 1 x 3 1/2"
Layer 5: punched ornament.

I used snail adhesive to attach a ribbon to look like the ornament was hanging from the ribbon.

Next I mixed some champagne shimmer paint, with rubbing alcohol and sprayed the mixture over the card twice. The shimmer is so subtle, but it's so beautiful in real life.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope you have time to stamp something quick and simple with the stamping 411 crew this week!
