Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 185

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

It’s so exciting!! the start of another Year. The start of another year of adventures with the Stamping 411 Operators. It’s always fun and exciting to see what they all come up with. Don't you think Selene came up with a fabulous team of Operators…..I know I’ve said it before but I am thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful group of ladies. Here’s to another Year Girls!!! Cheers!!

I’ve made some New Years Resolutions and hope to keep them all….especially the staying on my diet one!!! hehe…think I’ll make it? You know I love to cook and love good food….so that makes it tough….but I’m going to try.

Here is the sketch for this week…

……and my interpretation……

January Cards and Sketch 185 020

The Image is from the new Nature Walk Set and is a favorite of mine. I used the flower image and inked it up with two markers….my Rose Red and Old Olive.

The Card Base is Very Vanilla and cut to 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half. The embossed mat has been run through the Big Shot with the New Tulip Embossing Folder…..and it was cut to 4 x 5 1/4. The Rose Red mat was cut to 3 x 4 1/8 and fits nicely into the center of the frame…..the image piece is 2-7/8 x 4 which when place on the rose red creates just a tiny smidgen of color. I created my bow using the Rose Red Seam Binding and made my double bow. This Ribbon is GREAT for multi loop bows. The Happy Birthday saying is from the Create a Cupcake set and inked up with my Old Olive Marker…that’s it. Quick, Easy and Elegant…hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping in and don’t forget to hop on over to the Stamping 411 Blog and play along.
