Sketch Frenzy Friday – SFF0716

Good Day!  It’s time again for the Sketch Frenzy Friday Card Challenge and Mini Blog Tour!  The girls have been working diligently to bring your fresh and fun card samples and a great sketch this week too!


I’m really excited about this sketch.. it’s quite different, with a fun torn edge designed by Sketch Frenzy Friday Team Member Kelli Waters!sff0716Sketch071610

I had a lot of fun with this sketch… and with my Champagne Shimmer Paint, Pretties Kit, News Print Designer Series Paper and Scallop Circles Die.  Are you ready?

SFF0716 Created By You

I love the torn, curled, and layered Newsprint DSP on this card!  This greeting is from the Perfect Punches stamp set found on page 131 of the new Idea Book & Catalog… It’s one of my favorite images, and works well with the scalloped oval punch.  The flower from the pretties kit was daubbered with Champagne Shimmer Paint and carefully dried with a heat tool before attaching to the card.

Here’s the inside of the card:


Do you like seeing the inside of the card too?  Just wondering!
