Sketch Frenzy Friday 11/7/14

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

Well I made it, and Finals are over! My presentation on Rain Gutter Gardening was a hit! I am so relieved. Monday night I was in bed at 6:30pm! I was so brain dead lolol. I'm getting to old for college classes! But, it was fun and I learned a lot! Gardening, like Stamping there is always something new to learn. I am glad to be a perpetual  student of both!

This weeks sketch was designed by our fearless leader Kim Innis. It really is a pretty sketch and made for some very pretty cards check out our SFF blog.

Here is Kim's sketch;

This is was I came up with;

I received a card from a friend this summer who had another type of  candle on her card. I thought it was a great idea so, I came up with this rendition for this weeks sketch. Great idea Janice! I thought the Tempting Turquoise was a nice touch too! It added a bit of color pop to the Black and White DSP. I love adding a bright color to Black and White. It looks so dramatic.

The inside is very simple but carries the theme through as well.

Tempting Turquoise Embossing Powder.
1/8" Taffeta Ribbon.

I used a little retired SU Cup Cake Die for the birthday candle flames. I could have free handed them but I wanted them all the same size. That's what's so cool about dies I love the uniformity and clean cut lines made with them.

That's all there is for me today. I'm still kind of recovering mentally. But ,I saw a bunch of new sketches out there in blog land that are calling my name.

I sure hope you join us this week and create a card from this pretty sketch. We would love to see what you create so, post it on our blog here

Chat soon,
