Saturday Sketch Challenge 166

Good Evening Stampers!

I'm so happy with this week's sketch on Stamping 411! I used the sketch to create a card for my newest downline Michelle, who had her first Stampin' Up! workshop this past Tuesday.

I just wanted to welcome her to the the team and let her know that I was thinking about her.

I started with the neutrals designer series paper, and took the polka dot pattern in craft. I cut an oval from my big shot and used the lattice embossing folder, knowing that I wanted to use an apple pie image for my welcome card. I used the "VERY FUN TO WORK WITH" new seam binding that is in the holiday mini. I added some sticky strip to my card and just worked the ribbon on. I used the largest scallop circle punch on either side of my oval, and my scallop edge punch for the layer beneath that.

Then I went a little crazy with the self adhesive pearls, but why not!?! :D

This Clean and simple card was a blast to make and I hope Michelle loves it!

If you have time this week, please play along with me and the other operators from stamping 411.. There are sketch challenges, and color challenges... weekly how to's and more! I hope you have time to visit!

As always, just beautiful. I enjoy stopping by to see what you are up to. Amy should be bringing home one of the shower favors and a wedding program to show you my handy work. Enjoy the favor as a thank you for your help with my order. THe papers were great.

I love all those little pearls and how you worked the ribbon. I also like the idea of the scalloped circles on both sides of the oval, how clever. I'm going to have to try that one! Great card.

Selene -- this card is fantastic. The contrast with that Cherry Cobbler seam binding is amazing and the pearls are a great finishing touch! You are an inspiration! Blessings, Gretchen
