Sketch Frenzy Friday 03/02/12

Hello to all my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

Yes, it's that time again FRIDAY!!!!! What a week! There is so much going on over here I can barely breath! I just have to keep putting one foot in front of the other! You ever have times like that?

Well thank goodness for our SFF Mini Blog Hop. I sure can use a distraction and stamping is a good way to do it.
This week our sketch was designed by me. I submitted several sketches to help fill in some holes so to speak and this was one of them. You will see several more in the coming months. We all share in the sketch pool so that not just one person has the entire responsibility.
Here is this weeks sketch and I have to be honest even though I made it, it was a bit of a challenge.

and here is my card
I was playing around with an idea on how to utilize the small space and for some reason the Elements of Style floral spray came into my mind. I created one with Very Vanilla CS  and one with a Whisper White CS and I thought the Vanilla panel blended into the beautiful background paper too much, so what you see is the white My attempt was to make it Pop. I also placed the horizontal strip behind the floral panel, I took my own creative liberty lololol. In addition, I  thought about making a Calypso Coral Bow but again didn't want to move the focal point away from the floral panel. There you have it. Ha I even challenged my self lololol.

Your next stop on our Mini Blog Hop is to visit Robbie's blog. Every week I can't wait to see what she come up with as it is always a delight.

I hope you like the sketch and have a chance to give it a try. We would love to see what your creation looks like so please upload it on to our blog here

Have a great weekend and maybe this sketch will get you into your crafting space for some crafting fun. Thanks for stopping by.

Fantastic job!! Your white space really adds so much to this card. I really like this. BTW the tornadoes were very close this week but they didn't get the Detjen homestead!! The town in Illinois that got it so badly is pretty doggone close. It is going to be a long tornado season. Sigh. We also had an earthquake (2.0) last week. I felt like I was back in CA.
