Stamping 411 Sketch 234

Hi Everyone,
Welcome to the latest Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411!!!
I Hope you will find time in your busy days to play along with us this week. It’s really a stress reliever….really!!
For this weeks sketch I used the lovely Simply Soft Hostess Set. I so adore this set. It’s so easy to work with.
Here is my take on the sketch….hope you like it.
CTC #9 and Sketch and horses 035  Crumb Cake is the base of the card and is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 The Vanilla Mat is cut to 3 3/4 x 5 and run through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
I added a strip of Crumb Cake and punched with the Scalloped Edge Punch. On that I added some Melon Mambo Designer Paper….cut to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2.I attached the double loop bow behind the mat with adhesive.
The image piece is stamped with Black Stazon and colored in with Pretty in Pin, Rose Red and and Melon Mambo Markers. I used Old Olive for the branch and leaves. there is just a hit of shadow created using the Sahara Sand Marker going lightly around the image. the little just for you is stamped on scraps and cut with scissors. I did pop that up with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping in….hope you’ll catch your breath and play along.

Beautiful card, soft and pretty but am sure it can be changed up to be more masculine too. TFS!
