A Different Sketch

This was for yesterday's sketch challenge on SCS. This was definitely a different sketch for me. You had to cut out that half circle piece, kind of like a puzzle. All in all, the card is very simple, but my brain seemed to think the layout was difficult when I was trying to decide WHAT to stamp. I colored the bee image in with various gel pens and added some dry embossed dots with my Shapes Classy Brass template. I found the ribbon at my local craft store for $1 a roll! A roll is 3 yds . . .is that a good deal? It looked like one to me. The ribbon is 5/8" wide, satin and DUO!! The other side is a So Saffron color. I LOVED it all so much, I got some that is Purely Pomegranate/Old Olive and Chocolate Chip/So Saffron (at least these are the Stampin' Up colors I can compare them to). I just really love it. For those of you who "price" ribbon, don't tell me if it's not a good deal! LOL Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Daisy Bee, Stampendous, sentiment, Verve Visual; Paper- Wild Asparagus, DCWV orange, turquoise, Whisper White; Ink- Palette in Noir; Accessories- white gel pen, paper piercer, horizontal slot punch, ticket corner punch, Shapes Classy Brass Template, Mega circle punch, various gel pens, satin duo ribbon.

This card is adorable. My brain overthought the sketch and I was going to skip it. I think I "get it" now, and am ready to give it a go. The ribbon sounds like a great deal - and in such scrumptious colors!

This is too cute! I have not done the sketch yet but want to give it a try, maybe yet this afternoon.
Sounds to me that you got a good deal on the ribbon, and the colors sounds great!
