CCMC235 - Sketch Challenge



Thought it was time for a challenge and I love the sketch from Connie and Mary for this week. I love what the other contributors have made too, go over here to see.
2012 Create Thursday-015
I have broken out of my usual style too, for a bit of a change, because these adorable little blossoms,(a sneak peek from the mini catalogue coming Feb 1st)were crying out to be used.The paper is Sycamore Street, a new DSP for Sale-a-bration (Free with your order of $100). The embossing folder was placed on one side of the paper and put through the Big Shot, then turned and matched for placement and sent through again. It left a flat spot, which would have been perfect for the greeting but this time I have layered some 2.2cm cotton ribbon (ending 31st January), some crochet trim and some seam binding which I have tried to crumple for the shabby Chic look. Not sure whether I have achieved that or not. I haven't added a greeting at this stage, will sort that out when I need to use it.





Just a close-up of the trim.


Thanks for looking
Rachel

  8. I can't wait to get my next order and be able to use those little flowers. I love the addition of those to the card and that you toned down the brightness of the Sycamore street paper! I'm so glad you joined our sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary!
