Sketch Frenzy Friday 051311

Friday! and pardon our bumps today. Blogger has been down, and may still be on occasion. For now, it appears to be working, so here we go with another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge! Here is my card

based in this sketch brought to us by Patrice Herrera.

My colors are Certainly Celery and Rose Red. Pretty simple as it was VERY late last night! I thought of the wide striped ribbon when I saw the sketch, so I looked at the colors I have. Certainly Celery was unopened so I picked it. I love Certainly Celery and Rose Red together so there we go!! I chose the single stamp, For You Flower as the focal element. The card base is Certainly Celery with a Very Vanilla layer behind a combination Certainly Celery & Rose Red layer. The Celery side is just card stock that I textured with the Perfect Polka Dots folder in the Big Shot. The Rose Red side is card stock stamped with the Pretty Pattern background stamp with Very Vanilla Craft Ink. The flower was inked first in Rose Red, stamped on Very Vanilla card stock and punched with the Fancy Flower punch. I cleaned the stamp, and inked just the center with mostly Certainly Celery, and Rose Red one 'for You' to stand out. I gathered the ribbon under the flower by tying a piece of thread around it. I then attached the flower over the ribbon with dimensionals.
