Hello Stamping Friends:

Another Friday, another Sketch Frenzy Friday.  How has your week been?  Mine has been busy.  I am singing in a concert today and tomorrow that is being done by my church choir combined with another church choir.  We are performing Requiem in D Minor by Gabriel Faure and a selection of favorite church anthems.  Needless to say, we have been rehearsing long and hard!  I am so glad our sketch this week was simpler than last week's!!  And here is the sketch Patrice Herrera provided for us:
Here is my card:
Although I like the card overall, I am not sure about the Bermuda Bay sequins in the middle.  I thought I would try to tie a bow, but that may have been a big mistake!  Anyway, here's what I used:
  • Whisper White card stock
  • Calypso Coral card stock
  • Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper
  • Lovely Lace TIEF
  • Bermuda Bay sequins
I did not stamp a sentiment because I haven't decided which one to use!

Our blog, Sketch Frenzy Friday, has more samples from our designers, so go check it out!

Here's what I created to match the sketch:
I don't know if I had the card in mind when I created the sketch, but once I made the card, I just kept looking at it over and over.  It just made me so happy.  I love this card, and I hope you do also!

Here's what I used:
  • Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Sahara Sand cardstock
  • Painted Petals stamp set
  • Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, and Early Espresso inks
  • Lovely Lace embossing folder

Sketch Frenzy Friday--MDS Painted Petals

Hello Everyone!

It's time again for Sketch Frenzy Friday!  I chose to go with MDS this week simply because MDS is going away on May 31, 2015.  I am a little bit sad because I like using MDS, but as we all know, all good things must come to an end, and this is one of them.  I am sure there will be new and exciting things coming from Stampin' Up!. so don't worry!  We'll still have plenty of things to play with.

Here is our sketch from Jennifer Kay:
And, here is my MDS creation:
Such a pretty sketch, and I love how it came to life with MDS.
