I LOVE participating in Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenges. I guess I like the 'safeness' of having a sketch to work with (you can't really go wrong with a sketch), but the freedom to come up with your very own creation, and it allows you to try things that you quite possibly wouldn't normally try. So, having said all of that, here is the Sketch that Karen had for us this week.
And here is the card I created:-
I'm giving my current In-Colours one last hoorah!!!.. I figure I best be using them up now while I still can, I sure am going to miss them when they've gone!!!! Might have to keep a few bits and pieces as a momento...LOL!!
I've started with a base of Really Rust and then added a layer of River Rock and then some Apple Cider DSP (now retired). I then added a square of Really Rust which I attacked, well ok I didn't really attack it, but I did use my Scallop Edge Punch on it!!! and then added another piece of DSP from the Apple Cider Pack, this time River Rock Polka Dots, to that another strip of Really Rust and some Wild Wasabi Double Stitched Ribbon. To make the centre piece I've used a piece of Wild Wasabi paper, again from the Apple Cider which I cut out using my scallop punch then added a circle of Really Rust and one of the flowers from the recently finished Sale-a-bration set Polka Dot Punches. The little piece in the middle I cut from a piece of DSP (yep Apple Cider) and added a Brad from the soon to be retired Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware. The sentiment is from my also soon to be retired hostess set 'So Many Sayings'.
Now... there are a lot of retiring products on this little card, sooooo if there is anything on here that you would love to have before they disappear for good, then please email me to place an order.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you like my card. Don't forget to leave a comment to let me know!!!
