And Many More

TSSC322Okay…before I give you any details for this card I need to say…this sketch challenge from Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge ALMOST had me raising my hands in surrender!  Yes…I almost said…I GIVE UP!!!  I honestly didn’t know where to start and it’s been LOOMING over my head in DREAD each time I thought about sitting down to work on it.  Then I made the decision to use the Flashback dsp (a VERY FAVORITE of mine!) and then I decided to change up the sketch just a little bit.  But really all the element are there…just tweaked to work for me!

Here’s the details…

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Multicolored rectangles (Flashback dsp) – 2 3/4 x 5 1/2 and adhere to card base.
  • Real Red – two strips 1 1/2 x 3 3/8 – cut on angle.
  • Black Grid (Flashback dsp) – 1 3/4 x 4 – cut into banner, layer red behind and add to card base.
  • Stamp greeting using Memento black
  • Cut out a large circle and lay on card.  Place smallest rhinestones around the circle then remove.
  • Second to smallest star – cut out in Silver Glimmer, Crushed Curry striped (Flashback dsp) and Pool Party.  Add using dimensionals.

How awesome did that turn out?  I will have to say now I LOVE the card!

  1. You are funny! I know I was shocked when I seen the sketch–I was like what the heck was I thinking when I did that! I do like my card though too. Yours is just wonderful, love the stars and rhinestones mixed with that paper you can’t go wrong! Awesome job–proud that you did NOT give up! I am impressed with the whole team doing a great job with this sketch. Thanks so much for being a part of the TSSC team!
