Another Super Sketch Sunday



Another WONDERFUL sketch challenge by Amy Westerman on her blog, Heartfelt Greetings. She gives me such inspiration to create some neat cards! Thank you, Amy! I used some Basic Grey Scarlet Letter paper on this. I liked the distressed look of it. I was going to try to "distress" the elephant a bit, but I decided not to just in case I screwed it up. . .and this was the first time I got to stamp today, so the time was precious! :) I added a little faux stitching around the edge of the card to match the stitching on the May Arts ribbon. This card was a lot of fun to create. When I look at a sketch challenge, the most difficult part for me is deciding which stamp set to use! I hadn't used Wild About You in a little while, so that's how I made my decision this time. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I hear we're supposed to get snow here later in the week, so I'm hoping they're wrong! :) I was starting to pull out some of my summer sets! Wishful thinking! Have a great night! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Wild About You, A Muse small oval; Ink- Basic Black, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Buckaroo Blue; Paper- Basic Grey Scarlet Letter; Accessories- circle punches, May Arts ribbon, paper piercer, white gel pen.
