Sketch Frenzy Friday 072911

Happy Friday all! You know that means another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and mini tour!! Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Tammy Fite.

I carried the scallop square a little further than the sketch! I love the variation of making these little square cards on occasion. I cut a Melon Mambo Scallop Square with the Big Shot for the base layer. The actual "card" part is behind that. The square is right around 4-1/4", so I cut a 4x8 and fold it for the card. On the Melon Mambo I stamped the new Distressed Dots background. Word of warning: either my pad was very inky, or it's very easy to get too much ink on this one! I had to do it a second time to not have marks where I didn't want marks!! The next scallop square is Daffodil Delight and is the larger of the two on the Scallop Squares Duo die. I layered a Tempting Turquoise square in the center of that and stamped "Live in the Sunshine" at the bottom in Tempting Turquoise. I wrapped around a Melon Mambo Scallop Dots Ribbon. Hmmm, a theme! Scallops and dots!! :) Above that I attached a flower made with the Raining Flowers set. Melon Mambo for the back layer, Daffodil Delight with Tempting Turquoise for the middle layer, and a Tempting Turquoise button with White Bakers Twine.
