Sketch Frenzy Friday 2/21/14

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

It's SFF time again and what a great sketch we have for you this week. Diane Eichfeld designed it and I thought it was a really fun one to work with . Here is a look at her sketch.

This is my interpretation;

I loved all the fun lines and circular shapes. I chose bright solid colors and used  lots of different Embossing Folders  for some interesting texture.I kept the background solid so as not to take away from the sketch's elements. I love it when a card creates it's self.

Card Stock;
Kraft, Tangerine Tango, Blushing Bride,  Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White .
Ink; Basic Black
I added a few strands of Calypso Coral Bakers Twine and made a cute little fringe star burst from it. The Banner was stamped and cut with the matching Die set  Bitty Banners.  I always add a touch of bling, this time with a few Pearls.  The circles were cut out from the Circle #2 Original Die. I hand cut the Wavy trim by first  using the Simply Scored Border Plate and following the impression. Additional circles cut from 1/4 " and 1/2" punch.
Embossing Folders;
Honey Comb, Fancy Fan, Square Lattice and Polka Dot.

Here is a look at the inside;

The inside sentiment is from the Feel Goods stamp set.

Well that's it for today. I hope you like our sketch and give it a try. We would love to see what you come up with.  Just add it to our homepage here.

On a personal note my honey Jeff has been in a ton of back pain this month. We thought it was one thing and he had minor surgery last Tuesday, but it appears that did not do the trick. We are scheduling an MRI and additional Dr's appts for this week. Please put us in your thoughts and Prayers we can use them to figure out what in the heck is going on with him?????

Have a great week and I hope you find some time to create something fun.

Chat soon,

What a fun sketch and fun card, Patrice! I love all of the texture. I will definitely keep your husband in my thoughts. I know first-hand the agony of back pain. Thank goodness my surgery took care of it.
