Stamping 411 Sketch #235

Hi Everyone,
First I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully Happy and Healthy New Year!!! Where has time gone… soon will be 2012!!! Hard to believe isn’t it???
Today I’ve got a fun card for the sketch challenge. Hope you like it and will take a minute out of you busy day to play along with us over at Stamping 411 .
Here is the sketch:
…and my interpretation.
Sketch 235 002  
Isn’t this a fun card? I had tons of fun playing with this new set soon to be released.  The set is called Bordering on Romance. I decided it would look good in Black and Vanilla with just a splash of color. Oh Yeah!!! How about that fun thin Ribbon??? You can get that during Sale-a-Bration. It’s just the coolest.
Anyway I colored in my image with my aqua painter and watercolor crayons. I used the Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine Tango for the mix of color. The leaves are done in Old Olive and Wild Wasabi.
The card base is stamped with one of the images to make my own background. I used Black Stazon for that. The first Black Layer is cut to 3 7/8 x 4 3/8 and then I cut a mat of Newsprint that is 3 3/4 x 4 1/4 to lay on top. The next black mat is 2 7/8 x 3 5/8 and the image piece is cut to 2 3/4 x 3 1/2. I stamped the image in Black Stazon and colored in. The final touches are the small pearls and the fun ribbon from the soon to be released Sale-a-Bration Catalog. I couldn’t decide on which ribbon to use so used them both. hehe
The sentiment is from Just Believe. Doesn’t it just fit the card perfectly?
I hope you’ve enjoyed my share today and will come back soon. Don’t forget to check out the Stamping 411 Blog and see what the other Operators are up to.
Have a great weekend.
