I am sorry my posting is so  sporadic. I like to post every morning at 8:30 a.m. I like order. LOL  But life/work is busy right now and I don’t know if I will be able to post everyday and not sure when I get to post when I do have a chance.

Here is the first sample I made for my weekend sketch challenge. I thought I couldn’t show this for a while, but I decided I could after all. Now….most of this is non Stampin’ Up! So if you don’t like anything but SU, look away ( 😉 don’t look away…)


The card measurements are just like yesterday’s card.

The card base is a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Close to Cocoa cardstock. It was folded in half, the front was stamped with the En Francais background from Stampin’ Up! and the edges were sponged.

The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Blush paper pack. It was layered on Shimmery White cardstock. The photo corner was punched out of Basic Black cardstock with Stampin’ Up!’s photo corner punch. Martha Stewart self adhesive half pearls were added to the corner.

The 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip of Shimmery White cardstock was punched with Martha Stewart’s Lace Edge Punch. I went to the newly reorganized Michaels here in Destin and couldn’t help myself. That punch is just too pretty! I also had to pick up her 24 different color assortment of glitter. It was just begging to be coming home with me. LOL

The 1″ x 4 1/4″ paper strip is from the Blush collection of BasicGrey again. The bottom edge was paper pierced.  Two May Arts ribbon were tied around the horizontal strips.

The image is one of the new JustRite stamps. It’s from the Classic Circle III Ensemble. I stamped it in black Palette Ink on Shimmery White cardstock and colored it with my Copic Markers (R81, R83 and R85). It was cut out with my circle Nestabilities and layered on a Black scallop circle that was also cut with out with Circle Nestabilities.

To finish it off I adhered a tiny prima flower with Crystal Effects to a clear round button and adhered that with dimensionals to the card.
