Sketch Frenzy Friday 030912

Happy Friday all! Still crazy times here but I'm making a little time to spend in the stamp room!! Sometimes you  "have to" and that's not all bad!! :)

As you know Friday means a challenge at Sketch Frenzy Friday!! Here is my card

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala.

I struggled just a little (probably just because I'm not stamping enough) with what to put on the panels, but as soon as I saw this set, Sprinkled Expressions I knew it would work. The saying didn't work quite like I wanted, but I flipped one flower over and then it was fine! Who says they have to go which way??  

While looking at the sketch, I remembered the new colors of Baker's Twine that are in the Occasions Mini. New colors that I have yet to use. And I thought a button would work good where the heart is in the sketch. So, I set about coordinating buttons with twine and I ended up with purple-Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder. The card base is Elegant Eggplant with a textured background of Wisteria Wonder. Snowflakes work for flowers too, right? The panels are attached to the background with Mini Glue Dots. I wrapped the Wisteria Wonder Baker's Twine around the background 3 times. It is secured on the back with Snail. Then, I cut a separate piece and put through an Elegant Eggplant flower button and tied a bow around the wrapped twine.
