Sketch Frenzy Friday 02/08/2013

Hi Stampers!

It's Friday again, and you know what that means!!  Sketch Frenzy Friday time!!!   Yay!! We have a great sketch this week from Patrice:
And here is my card based on her sketch:
You'll notice that my card is NOT exactly like the sketch.  Honestly, I don't know what I was thinking when I looked at the sketch, except I wanted to make a Valentine card.  I knew I wanted to use the new doilies from the Spring Catalog, the Hearts a Flutter Framelits and the Honeycomb TIEF. By the time I folded, sponged, and placed the doilies, it wouldn't fit on a regular 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" card, so I decided to use a square card.  Here's what I did:
  • Cut Primrose Petals cardstock to 5-1/2" X 11"
  • Embossed the front of the card with the Honeycomb TIEF
  • Sponged 4 doilies with Soft Suede ink, folded each in fourths, and adhered to the card front with Mini Glue Dots
  • Cut 4 small hearts from the Print Poetry Paper Stack with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, sponged each with Soft Suede, popped up one on each quarter circle with Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered a large pearl(largest of the ones that come in the multi size package of pearls) to each heart.
  • Stamped " Love You" from the Seasonal Sayings set--carried over from the Holiday Catalog--in Soft Suede on Very Vanilla card stock and Colored the heart in the middle with the Raspberry Ripple marker, cut it out with the banner framelit from the Hearts a Flutter framelits set, sponged the edges with Soft Suede, and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Added a ribbon and bow made with the Primrose Petals stitched satin ribbon
Here's a close up view of the heart and sentiment section:
That's all from me today.  I am linking you to our main SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY blog, where you can look at all the other designers' cards based on this sketch.  Why not join us?  You'll find the Linky tool on our main blog also.

I really like how your card turned out. I attempted a card similar to this and couldn't pull it off. But You
Did! Love all the little elements and distressing you did to it too!
