The Stamping Baazar has another sketch challenge this week. So this is the card that I came up with using the Josie in the hat digital image.
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
Buttons & twine
Stamp: "Thinking of You" Close To My Heart
Ink: Memento, Dark Cocoa
Border Punch: Martha Stewart
Nestabilities: Small & Large Circles
Kraftin' Kimmie has a challenge for funky fibers. I used the new Claire image with the Nutcracker. My daughter has done the ballet for quite a few years, and I hate to say that I miss being involved in the production. I do not miss getting her hair in those ringlets! When you watch the performance I enjoy the rich velvet colors which is what I tried to portray in my card. I used several different stitches on my sewing machine. I left a white border around the image for a contrast since the card is so dark. For the layout I used Mercy's sketch which is her 100th one!
Patterned Paper: Little Yellow Bicycle
Embossing Folder: Sizzix
Cardstock: Bazzil & core-dinations
Ink: Memento, Black tuxedo
Ribbon: Wrights & Michaels
Nestabilities: Large Oval
I found a picture of the kids from December 2005 when they were both in the production- now it seems so long ago.
