Sketch Frenzy Friday 071511

Friday! another week gone! Not looking forward to the hot weather on the agenda, but I am looking forward to the weekend and my New Catalog Open Houses! A house full of Stampers-it doesn't get any better than that!!

Anyway, as you know, Friday means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini hop. Here is the card I created

based on this sketch by Sharon Field. Sadly, this is Sharon's last week with us. Make sure you stop over and tell her thanks for all the great creations she's shared with us!!

I loved the Well Word DSP in the catalog, and it didn't disappoint in person!! The card base here is Early Espresso. A Cajun Craze layer accents the background of the DSP square background. On the left, I used two of the Ribbon Scallop border punches for my bottom layer, then Crumb Cake 3/8" Taffeta & 1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta. Crumb Cake is not one of the colors listed with this DSP, but I think it coordinates just fine. At least with this print. The main element is the pheasant from Autumn Days. I knew he'd be a perfect fit for the 2-3/8" Scallop Punch. I punched that out of Not Quite Navy and layered on a Naturals Ivory 1-3/4" Circle that I had stamped with Crumb Cake and one of the stems from Autumn Days. The pheasant was stamped on another piece of Naturals Ivory and cut out. The pheasant was inked with Cajun Craze, then thumped with Not Quite Navy, Soft Suede & Early Espresso. Lightly with all. Dimensionals were used to attach the pheasant to the circle, and the scallop circle to the card. The saying is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. I stamped it in Cajun Craze on Naturals Ivory, punched with the Word Window punch, and layered onto an Early Espresso Modern Label punch. At each end of the Modern Label, I added a Crumb Cake brad. The elements is attached to the card wit dimensionals.
