Sketch Frenzy Friday 6/29/13

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

Boy it's hot outside! It's a different type of hot than I am used to in So. Cal. We have dry heat. For those of you who don't know what Dry Heat is think of it this way. Walk out to your card after it has sat in a parking lot of a while and get in... Thats Dry Heat. Humidity is a strange thing it can be hot outside and yet be overcast and your sweating???.
On a cooler note we have a baby deer just on the outskirts of our property he/she? Stays just on the edge of the woods eating all the wild berries. We can hear the mom but she never comes out of hiding (smart girl). I tried to get a picture of it through the window but all I got was a great picture of the screen lolol. Maybe if he comes out today I'll give it a try again.

Now on to the reason you are here. It's Sketch Frenzy Friday time!!!!! This weeks sketch was designed by Deb Currier. I love her sketch. It made me think of Vintage and Shabby Shik (sp?) I think that is how you spell it?

Here is Deb's sketch

This is what I came up with

I used Very Vanilla card stock for the base and the tag. Then I distressed both. I made a Early Espresso Doily for the background piece. I cut a scrap of Pool Party and ran it through the Big Shot with the Chevron Embossing Folder for the flag piece. The edge of the tag was made by first using the Delicate Design Edge Folder and then I cut around the scallop  part I think it gave the tag some added character. I added a few Pearls and a thin strip of Pumpkin Pie and the sentiment piece to make the tag. I wanted to coordinate with the thin strip of Pumpkin Pie that is on the tag, so I added another strip as well to the card front. I made a triple layer Daffodil Delight Seam Binding Ribbon Bow for the top of the tag The Sentiment is from the From My Heart Stamp Set. I used the Large Scallop Oval and the Scalloped Oval Punches which I popped up with Dimensionals.

I hope you like my card and this weeks sketch. We would love to see your creation so please add it to our homepage here.

Chat soon and have a great week!
