Sketch Frenzy Friday: You’re a Gem… Truly!

With a color palate a bit out of my comfort zone, here is this week’s Sketch Frenzy Friday Design Team Card!  I think my inspiration came from the So Saffron Botanical Gazette Designer Series Paper with a honey comb pattern… and the rest of the card just happened!


Funny, I’ve totally neglected my Elegant Lines Textured Embossing Folder for quite some time!  Looking at the card now, I’ve got another idea for using it LOL! 

The “You’re a Gem” stamp set is one of those that can be earned free during Sale-A-Bration, and one that I had totally overlooked until recently.  Here, I’ve paired it with the Artistic Etchings stamp set.. Queen For a Day just wouldn’t be the same without a crown, right?

Basic Jewel Pearls were added to the crown, and on stamped images along the sides of Whisper White Card Stock… just seemed appropriate.

Today’s sketch was created/designed by Sketch Frenzy Friday Team Member Deb Currier using Stampin’ Up! My Digital Studio Software.  It’s a really easy way to create sketches for your scrapbook pages, cards, and of course custom scrapbooks for family and friends!


I really had to resist using the Baroque Motifs stamp set on this card… Deb made it so simple to CASE as is! 

Sketch Frenzy Friday is a mini blog hop, and next step is Tammy Baldwin’s delightful little blog!  Be sure to leave her an encouraging comment.. we all love that LOL!!

Sharon I love this card. It's probably the nicest one I've seen using this stamp set. All the elements work including the embossing folder which really adds a richness to the background and works well with the so saffron card stock. TFS. Very inspiring.
