Sketch Frenzy Friday 040111

Happy Friday all, and best of luck with April Fools Day tomorrow. I've already heard of one great prank being played on a boss by employees. Just hope at my office tomorrow, all is as usual!!

Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge! My brainpower was quite low tonight, when I finally got around to making my card. I really need to do them earlier in the week when I'm supposed to!! Anyway, here is my card


based on this sketch brought to us by Kim Innis. We do hope you'll stop over this week and play along!!


This card features a new set from the upcoming catalog called Four Frames. It can be yours today with a purchase of just $20 from the catalog! View the details online HERE.

Back to the card! I decided this little bird element looked like it should go with the Botanical Gazette DSP in the Occasions Mini. Well, it didn't go together quite as easily as I had hoped, but I finally got something I can live with! Card base is Cherry Cobbler. Background is the birdcage print from the Botanical Gazette DSP. Along the left edge is another DSP print with the ruler on the edge, layered onto Not Quite Navy. I tried several pieces of DSP here before the ruler caught my eye. The Bird label was stamped in Not Quite Navy on Very Vanilla. I then added the words from Fundamental Phrases in Cherry Cobbler before punching out. I layered the Bird label onto two punched from Cherry Cobbler. Lastly, a Crumb Cake button with Linen Thread accents the corner.

I think the little bird is great with this DSP paper. I can't wait until the man in brown brings the Four Frames Stamp Set to my house.What a great card!

Great card! I think it all works great! And I really like how your decorative label is the focal point and how you used a button for the circle element! Very creative!

What a great combination, the DSP and the bird stamp! TFS!
