Sketch Frenzy Friday 123011

Happy Friday all! Not really feeling like Friday here, but that's what happens when the Holidays are around!! The creativity isn't really flowing here either, but I came up with something I could live with for the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge of the week :)

 Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Sharon Wheet.

My card base is Crumb Cake, with a Chocolate Chip accent layer behind a Real Red background. The strip across the center is Real Red DSP from the Patterns DSP Brights Stack. The flower image is from Faith in Nature (a Hostess set). I stamped the image on Naturals White in Chocolate Chip then added color to it. I sponged on Real Red (using a reverse masking technique), then added some Real Red accents with a Blender Pen. The stem was colored with Chocolate Chip and a Blender Pen, and the center with a little Daffodil Delight. I sponged the edge lightly with Crumb Cake before layering to Real Red and Chocolate Chip. A Real Red button with White Baker's Twine is the final accent. The "Thank You" saying is also from the Faith in Nature set.

Happy Friday all, and Happy New Year!! Continue on our mini tour by clicking HERE to see what Maria has created this week.

See you next year :)
