Sketch Frenzy Friday 062813

Happy Friday all! Hope you've had a good week! A little too warm & humid here for my taste, but not much I can do about that but live with it!! :0) Hopefully a little cooler for the weekend.

Friday means another round of Sketch Frenzy Friday, and one that I actually played along with!! Still trying to get back on track and starting to feel a little better about it!

Here is my creation

based on this sketch by Deb Currier

I wanted to try a new color or two, and after looking for a bit, settled on Pleasant Poppies as the stamp to use. I just put it together the other day! It isn't new this year, but recently new to me. I settled on the Strawberry Slush for the main color, and Basic Gray and Whisper White to compliment. I'm still operating without much new stuff, although it is arriving soon! My ribbon and accessories are very limited, and I don't have the new Color Coach yet for color suggestions. I stamped the big image in Strawberry Slush on a background layer of Whisper White. That was layered onto Strawberry Slush. Near the bottom I attached a strip of Strawberry Slush DSP from the Quatrefancy Specialty pack. Over that and around both layers is a Basic Gray 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain ribbon. Over that, I added a 2-3/8" Basic Gray Scallop Circle. On that I added a Whisper White circle that was cut with the Circles #2 Bigz Die. On the White I stamped more Poppies in Strawberry Slush and added the saying "Imagine" in Basic Gray. I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement I wanted as I cut the circle first. I added a ribbon bow of Whisper White Taffeta at the bottom of that element, and attached the entire circle with dimensionals over the DSP and ribbon. All of that is attached to the card base of Basic Gray.

Thanks all for stopping by today! Make sure you stop over at the main SFF Blog to see what the rest of the team created, and to play along!!
