Super Sketch Sunday #13



Another wonderful sketch from Amy over at Heartfelt Greetings! I am addicted! I look forward to every Sunday. Even if I don't have time to actually do them on Sunday, I at least HAVE to check to see if it's there! LOL I didn't have any sentiments that were big enough to fit in the "sentiment block" on the sketch, so I decided to fill the sentiment block with a cut out flower from Big Blooms with the sentiment as the center of the flower. I think it worked well. If you have the Big Blooms set, you know that the largest flower's center isn't perfectly round, so when I punched out a large circle to fit over the center, there were a few white spots showing on a couple of the edges, so I used Purple Stickles to "cover them up", and add a nice bit of sparkle to the flower. The large flower grommets are part of a new toy I just got! The Making Memories Grommet Set! I have seen this in different scrapbooking magazines and have LOVED it! I was browsing through Michael's one day and there it was! You can imagine how happy I was. . .especially when I had a 40% off coupon! :) I got the grommet setting kit and an extra pack with these flower grommets in it. If you can believe it, these are the "smaller" grommets of the bunch! There are HUGE circles that I haven't used yet! I thought this sketch was the perfect time to use these flower grommets though! To finish the card off, I did some faux stitching around the edges of the layers. . .bet you can't tell I LOVE faux stitching, can you?!! I'm really happy with how the card turned out! Thank you, Amy, for another WONDERFUL sketch! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- In My Thoughts, Big Blooms; Paper- DCWV Glitter Stack, Light Blue, Certainly Celery; Ink- Regal Rose, Basic Black; Accessories- Paper piercer, white gel pen, Purple Stickles, large circle punch, Making Memories Glower Grommets and Grommet Setting kit.
