It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means… A new sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches! Our host this week is the always awesome designer, Rita Wright. I truly am in awe of her amazing talent. I LOVE all of her creations, and she’s one of the most modest people I’ve ever met. If I were her, I be holding everything up and saying “See what a great card I made?!” 🙂 Rita created a great sketch this week, too. Very easy to work with, but enough design to make a really great card and show off a great stamp or DSP.
Of those two items (stamp or DSP), I chose to highlight a fabulous background stamp, Something Lacy, heat embossed with Pool Party Embossing Powder on Early Espresso card stock.
The lacy background needed a border, so strips of Pool Party Cotton Ribbon, Island Indigo card stock and Gold Glimmer paper cut with the Scallop Border Punch came to the rescue. A Bitty Butterfly and some little flowers from the Itty Bittly Accents Punch Pack, all adorned with Basic Rhinestone Jewels added a little dimension.
I love the Banner Blessings stamp set, and I love how each of the four sentiments have a scripture on them. On this one, embossed with Early Espresso, I also colored in the large letters with a Island Indigo Stampin’ Write Marker.
If you’re looking for a quick and easy card (and one that’s mail-friendly), this one fits the bill!
Here’s Rita’s sketch…
I hope you’ll come play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
