Sketch Frenzy Friday 010711

Friday :) It's been a long week! Even though I worked my usual schedule last week, aside from being sick on Friday, I feel this week like I'm readjusting! Holiday hangover I guess?? Anyway, Friday means another sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday!! This one was a challenge for me, and this is actually the second card I did (the first is hitting the circular file). I've come to the conclusion that simpler is better for me!! It's always good to step outside the comfort zone though, right? Here is my creation:

based on this sketch by Kim Innis.

The scan isn't the best, this card REALLY sparkles in person! This Red Glimmer Paper is Way Cool!! My 13 year old son saw it from the hallway as I was cutting pieces and had to come check it out up close!!

Card base is Real Red, cut to fold to 5-1/2" square. The set used here is Filled with Love that was in the Holiday Mini Catalog. It is available through January 24th as part of a special bundle including exclusive Love  Patterns DSP and FREE Bitty Buttons. (Click HERE for details) The next layer is a dotted print from the Love Patterns DSP, followed by Red Glimmer paper. WOW, right?? I also used a strip of it behind the layers. Finally a Whisper White piece is stamped with the "LOVE" stamp and several hearts. I punched a heart from the Glimmer paper and put in the middle of the "O". Red Glimmer brads are on the left side. Three more elements from the set are accents on the right side.

As usual, we have a mini tour for you among the Sketch Frenzy Friday team. Click HERE to go to Kim's blog and see what she came up with. Thanks for stopping by, and we hope you play along with us this week!! Remember, all blogs and the Sketch Frenzy main blog are linked in my right side bar.
