Sketch Frenzy Friday 102612

Happy Friday all! Long week but I think I'm just about recovered from all the activity I had last weekend :) I always enjoy the time with my stampers but the work of it just about wipes me out!! Looking forward to a little more relaxing time this weekend!!

Here is my Sketch Frenzy Friday creation of the week!

based on this sketch by Tammy Fite.

My card base is Rich Razzleberry with an accent layer of Lucky Limeade behind the background of Whisper White. While running through ideas in my mind, I hit on this DSP print. It's from the Summer Smooches pack and I've always wondered what it would work good with. I decided it would be perfect for a couple of the "banners" on this sketch. I'm terrible at these by the way-if anyone has a great tip for cutting the corner ends of these straight, please let me know! I know I can't do it free hand, so I always reach for a square punch. But they never seem to come out quite right!!

I changed up the sketch a little again. I'm becoming quite the rebel aren't I? I'm usually one for keeping it as is!! My center banner isn't banner cut at all, I left both ends straight so I could fit more flowers on. I stamped the flowers/leaves from Bright Blossoms. Some I cut out, some I stamped direct. I added a couple Daffodil Delight brads and one Daffodil Delight button with some Whisper White Bakers Twine in the center. The saying is from Friendly Phrases.

The white background may be a little too white, but I didn't give myself any extra time to try something else! Probably should have made my "banner" layers just a tad wider! Oh well, it isn't terrible!

Happy Friday all! Hope you have a GREAT weekend on tap and you find some stamping time! Make sure you stop over at the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog to check out the creations of the other Design Team Members. AND, play along with us!!!
