Heartfelt Thanks Sketch Card

Good Morning Everyone!

We have another Sketch today from Stamping 411

It’s so fun playing along with these sketches…..why not give it a try.

Here is the sketch:ssketch104

and here is my card:Heartfelt_Thanks_Sketch_thumb[2]

I used the Heartfelt Thanks Set from Stampin’ Up! It’s one of my favorites and I haven’t had it out to play for a long time. I used Regal Rose for the card base and black and white cardstock.

I thought En Francais’ was the perfect touch for this elegant card which is on the strip behind the image. I colored in the flower using blender pens and pastels for that soft look. I used the Just a Note stamp from “Elegant Greetings” and the “Itty Bitty’s” Stamp Set for the speckles around the flower. I don’t know what I would do without my Itty Bitty’s!!!

Card Dimensions:

Base: 4 1/4" x 11"

Black Mats: 1 1/2" x 5 1/2" and 3" x 4 1/4"

White Image Pieces: 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 2 3/4" x 4 "

Tip: Itty Bitty’s really fills in and make images pop a bit more…fills in spaces that just need a little something and makes it look more real. Can you tell I love it?

I hope you enjoyed today’s Sketch Card and will visit Stamping 411 to see the other Operator’s cards.

As Always….

Have a Stampinglee good Day!
