Fun with Sketches

I love using sketches when creating cards, I have several favorites that I have used many times over. This card was created using SCS sketch challenge #82. I used the Delight in Life stamp set, this is a fun 2-step stamping set and gave me lots of practice with the Stamp-a-ma-jig. Colors for this card include Basic Black, Cool Caribbean, and Taken with Teal.

I used the white gel pen to add highlights to the scrolling at the bottom of the card. I used black 7/8" organdy ribbon and silver cording for a classy bow (I am truly more of a knot person).
There is also dazzling diamonds glitter on each of the flowers adding some extra sparkle (I just love glitter).

Just for fun, I have included another card created using this same sketch (SCS SC82). This card features Snow Flurries from the Holiday Mini Catalog, Holiday Thyme Designer Paper and Cranberry and Thyme stitched grosgrain ribbon. The sentiment is from Warmest Regards.
I did a little doodling at the bottom of the card using a white gel pen.

Have a terrific Tuesday, Enjoy!
