Today’s sketch included something new for me. A tassel or as Claire told us, a dangly bit. 🙂 As inspiration I used  the image for this weeks Trigger Target, the Polka Dotted Hullabaloo.

I love the Gray/Yellow/Red/White combo of the fabric and used that as my color combo. The circular shape I tried to incorporate with my pearl accents.

My card base was cut out of Basic Gray cardstock with one of the Grand Nestabilities Label Eleven dies. A piece of Pink Paisley Hometown Summer paper that was cut with the next size smaller die. A piece of Solar White cardstock was hand cut to a slightly bigger layer. The layers were stitched together after a piece of lace was adhered to the left hand side.

A few pearls and glass beads from Stampin’ Up!’s Pretties Kit were tied to a piece of white Organdy Ribbon. That ribbon was stitched to the top of the lace.

One of the stamps from the Vintage Label Four set was stamped in Fired Brick Distress ink on Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with a Label 4 Nestabilities dies. The swirl is from the same set and was stamped into the label with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases and was also stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

A Recollection Pearl swirl was adhered to the upper right hand side of the card. The label was adhered to the lower half with dimensionals. Two black Kaisercraft Pearls on the label finish off the card.

I hope you have time to play with the sketch this week. Have a great weekend!
Hugs and smiles
