Okay first thing is first, IT IS FRIDAY!!! I spent yesterday afternoon not using my time wisely. I decided to go watch the high school baseball game. My best friends son pitched 5 perfect innings and we won the game 13-0. It was a double header and we decided to leave 2 innings into the second game because it seemed to be along the same lines as far as us scoring. When we got home, Taryn and I ended up walking a few pigs before doing barn chores. I did a quick dinner with Pork Chops that was ready right as Troy got home from a service call! PHEW!!! I still found time to create but it was before all of this above... I am a morning crafter!!!
This sketch killed me for an hour... I decided to set aside what I had started on initially because I couldn't make it work. I have a secret sister for an upcoming retreat and decided to work on a project for her, not realizing subconsciously, that it was our sketch! Let me show you what I have created!
Yes, this is not a card but still followed the sketch and was so fun to make! I have paired the Create with Friends with the Artistically Inked Bundle as well as the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. My color combo used is the Polished Pink, Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana. I chose these colors as they seemed to be the closest to the note pad inside. After stamping and die cutting the flowers from the Artistically Inked bundle I set them aside to work on the sentiment portion. The sentiment is from the Create With Friends and heat embossed in Silver over the top of a Coastal Cabana stamped background also from the Artistically Inked. It is die cut with a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies. I have accented this with the clear Elegant Faceted Gems. The Basic Black base is nicely matted with a layer of Polished Pink and Pattern Play DSP. To close this cute little notepad holder I have used the Black Glitter Organdy Ribbon. I have given a couple of different views below!
This is a perfect example of thinking a bit outside of the box for a card sketch! Its amazing how this great little notepad holder came together! I hope my secret sister enjoys it as much as I did creating this for her!
Now it is your turn to create with this sketch! I can't wait to see what you make!
Have an amazing weekend!
