Sketch Frenzy Friday 3/14/14

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

It's that time again, another great sketch from the design team at SFF!
Let's take a look at it

What do you think? I really got into this one this week. Here is my creation;

Stamping Supplies used to make this card.

Card Stock
Crushed Curry, Basic Grey and Whisper White.
Designer Series Paper (DSP)
Eastern Elegance.
Stamp Set
Blessings from Heaven,
Banner Blast and Field Flowers.
Labels Collection
Embossing Folder
Fancy Fan.
Basic Black

I like that the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder I used matched the pattern of the DSP. I would never have combined the color combination that was used in the DSP but, what an elegant effect it had. I added two thin strips of the Crushed Curry on the sides of the second layer of the sketch because I felt the Basic Grey didn't pop the way I had hopped it would against the DSP. I think adding the extra bit of color did the trick. I saw that there was a bit of extra space on the bottom of the sketch so I added the little ("hi") banner which I stamped in Crush Curry and for me that did the trick there too.

I always try to add a little bit of something to the inside of my cards for an extra surprise to the recipient. Lets take a look.

I think just a little touch of color and a bit of DSP really makes for a extra special card. If I am giving a gift along with a card. I would dress up a white gift bag and add a strip or two of the matching DSP to make it more personalised.

That's all for me. But I wanted to tell you I created 4 new cards this week. I have been really having fun in my craft room. I hope you find some time to create something fun this week and use our sketch to do so. We would love to see  what you create!!! All you have to do is post it to our main page here

As a side note the injection that Jeff was given in his back didn't do the trick as well as we had hoped it would. He is still in pain but at least he can sit up for an hour or two now! Because it has been so long his Dr. has sent his records to a spine specialist and two nerve/skin Dr's (some big long name) for review we should know more next week. God I hope so, I really feel bad for Jeff. I don't know how much more of this pain business he can take.

Please keep your prayers coming. And Thank you so much for doing so. I believe Prayer works.

Chat soon,
