Saturday Sketch Challenge

Good Evening Friends!

Tonight ~ operator Gretchen Barron took a turn at the sketch board and oh what a beauty it is!

I was very inspired by Robin's post over on stamping 411 this week, and her most AWESOME rendition of one layer cards... So following her lead, I made a one layer card!

I know I'm usually doing measurements for you.. but tonight ~ there aren't any! :D

This looks like there is a little more going on than there is here, but Stampin' Up has made it easy for their customers to purchase pre-printed kits. The stamp set that goes with this is a happy birthday and thank you, and provides a low cost solution for the new stamper. (and for some of us who have been around a while too).

Anyway... I took out the ready made note card. Embossed the bell, (from the Bells and Boughs stamp set) colored it with crumbcake, artichoke, and cherry cobbler markers. I added some top coat shimmer a few self adhesive pearls and tied a cherry cobbler ribbon on... I think the whole thing took me 5 minutes!

I love simple, what can I say?

Have a great weekend!

Wow, that is a great way to dress up that premade note card. Love the ribbon and the stamped image just makes this card so elegant looking without a ton of work, excellent way to dress it up!
