Sketch Frenzy Friday-I Love Strawberry Slush!

Hi Stampers:

Strawberry Slush is such a fun name for this color, and I love it!  It kind of brings to mind hot summer days, and cool, icy, slushy drinks to sip on a shaded porch!  Welcome to Sketch Frenzy Friday this week!  Wish I could have you over for a cool drink, but since I can't, I hope my card this week helps you envision sunny summer days!  Our sketch this week was created by.....ME, and here it is:

Sketch Frenzy Friday 03-07-14 Almost Monochromatic

Hi Stampers:

Well, it's been a while since I posted for Sketch Frenzy Friday.  If you missed me, I'm sorry.  Let me just say that February was a horrible month for me, but I am back and ready to entertain you with a new SFF post.  Our sketch this week was created by  Marisol:

And here is my creation based on the sketch:

As I said at the top, this is almost a monochromatic look.  I used Crisp Cantaloupe card stock and cut it at 4-14' X 11'.  I cut another piece of Crisp Cantaloupe 4' X 5-14' and used that piece for may stamping and embellishments.  The Crisp Cantaloupe thick bakers' twine and the cork flowers are part of the Sweet Sorbet Accessories that are a FREE item with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-Bration. I love that the flowers are self-stick--makes it easy to just pop them on the card. I also used another FREE SAB item--the Petal Parade stamp set--and stamped the uneven scallops border accent in Early Espresso.  The sentiment is from Sweet Essentials, and is also stamped in Early Espresso.  After stamping and embellishing I mounted the piece of Crisp Cantaloupe with dimensionals onto the base card.  I like this layered monochrome look.
