Sketch Challenge

I can't believe I haven't inked up my hostess set, Sidekick Sayings yet! Now that Stampin' Up! has 2 catalogs a year, I can't keep up and this poor set was retired before I even cut the rubber. Poor thing. Today over at Splitcoaststampers is the Wednesday sketch challenge - one of my favorites because that's the most difficult part of getting a card together for me. So here is my entry - I love the Fall Flowers double sided paper and it adds so much to a card acting as a background. I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive and then the flower again in Soft Sky. This is such a simple way to add dimension to your projects without a whole bunch of work. Got to love that! I used a sponge dauber to sponge on Soft Sky around my Whisper White to soften the edges a little bit. I like those subtle touches. The ribbon is Soft Sky double stitched grosgrain. What am I going to do when this color is retired?! All in all, this is a very quick and classic card - enjoy!

Go check out the Wednesday challenge here and post a comment with a link to your card. I'd love to see what you come up with!


  1. I just love your photos! You are doing a great job with your blog. Beckie C. (ladystamper) got me hooked on blogs, I just love reading about what everyone is doing and seeing their samples.
