Beate's Treasure

Beate's weekend sketch challenges are one of my favorite things to dao. They always make fabulous cards, and this week's was no exception. This card uses Weekend Sketch #16.

I started by stamping the Penny Block Dotted Flower on white cardstock and coloring with Prismacolors and Gamsol. I then sketched a frame around the panel and colored around the edges with a Summer Sun Watercolor Wonder Crayon and an Aquapainter. This panel is matted on Pumpkin Pie. The orange strip behind is a wide May Arts ribbon. I cut a small circle of the Basic Grey Mellow floral paper and matted on an Always Artichoke Extra Jumbo Scallop circle punch. I then added some dots to each scallop with a White Glaze pen and cut the circle in half for the two half circles on the sketch The background dot paper is also from the Mellow collection and is matted on an Always Artichoke base. I stamped the A Muse I Treasure Your Friendship stamp in black on Always Artichoke and punched out with the large oval punch from Stampin' Up!. I then glued on Pumpkin Pie and trimmed the edges with my ProvoCraft mini scallop scissors. I finished off with some Stardust stickles on the flower center and then just for the fun of it, I stamped a matching envelope for the card.

There you have it... Beate's sketches make things so easy, and then you can just stamp for the sheer joy of stamping! :) And don't forget to enter your card in my 75K Card Sketch Contest for a chance to win a Super Jumbo Scallop Squaree punch or an Extra Jumbo Scallop Rectangle punch! For that one reader(you know who you are) who has been commenting on a certain other person's blog about my lack of Sprinkle cards lately, be sure to tune in tomorrow. I might just have a little something swanky for ya! ;)
