Cards And Things Challenge ~ A Sketch!

Good Morning Friends!

I'm so VERY excited about this sketch challenge from my GF Krista today over on the cards and things challenge blog... I'm the guest designer this month, and that job is really easy with such a great sketch artist at the helm.

I can see this as a sketch I'll return to over and over again. Clean simple, and gorgeous... this went together in a matter of minutes.

This card is for a really wonderful long distance friend that I'm so grateful for... Of course I have lots of long distance friends. This one happens to be in my down line and she's been going through some stuff.. I hope this brightens her day.

Well I'm sure you're wondering what that paper is from... Well, it's a sneak peek from the new holiday mini catalog!! Isn't it gorgeous? Well, it's textured and feels like heavy duty card stock, it's not your standard designer paper.

The "Grateful" stamp is stamped in pear pizazz, on so saffron paper, then sponged all the way around with pear again.

I popped that entire 2 1/2" layer up on dimensionals and added a double bow with glue dots. I stamped the "for you" from the same stamp set... it was a long phrase, that I just omitted and used the "for you" by inking with markers. Then I punched the mini tag and attached it with a glue dot..

Easy peasy, rice and cheesy! :) (boy, I'm in a good mood!)....

I decorated the inside by adding an eyelet border punch across the top. I hope you're having a wonderful week!
