Sketch Frenzy Friday 08/17/12

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

It is Sketch Frenzy Friday time! I thank my father in heaven every day for these SFF sketch challenges. Things have been so crazy the last few months my time in the craft room has been almost non existent, so I am extremely grateful for our Friday challenge. I made a commitment to participate in these weekly sketch challenges and thank goodness I did.

However, next week I will have an announcement that will cause me to be away for about a month in the near future. So stay tuned as I still have a few things to take care of prior to letting the cat out of the bag.
Thank you ladies for counting on me and for allowing me to be a part of this talented group of amazing designers. You all Rock!

Now, let's get on to the important stuff... our challenge! Tammy F designed this weeks sketch! I was so excited when I pulled it up. Most of the time I do not look ahead at the sketch line up. That way I will totally have to work off the cuff so to speak. This week's sketch was no exception and it was an amazing surprise. Good job Tammy!

This is my version.

I love, love, love one of this years new SU In Colors called Gumball Green. It is such a rich and cheery color. I paired it with the International Bazaar DSP. Then matted a few of the Framelets Labels Collection Dies for the focal image. I really like how the white piece around the DSP piece made the center piece pop.  The sentiments are from the Apothecary Art and My Friend stamp sets. This is about as clean and simple as I can get. Here is a look at the inside.

I hope you enjoyed my card and get inspired to create something fun for yourself. Then you can download it on to our home page so we can see what you have come up with. Use this link to do so

Great card Patrice. Gumball green is definitely one of my favourites of the new in colors as well. Love the simplicity of the card, yet it has a "pop" because you used the framelits. I'm on tetherhooks now waiting for the big announcement.
