Hi there!! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I was in cleaning mode and I accomplished alot the last few days. I even made a few cards, one of which is this one for the unscripted sketch #22. I just stumbled upon this sketch challenge and decided to participate. I really like the sketches and all the possibilities. I used my new cosmo cricket early bird mini deck paper that I got at ellens store the other day. I love these mini decks. If you love cosmo cricket you will love these..... the same paper just scaled down to 6x6...perfect for us card makers!!! I used my favorite everyday button bits from papertrey and used buttons that I had that matched the papers. I stamped the sentiment on vintage cream in dark chocolate ink and then cut each word out and antiqued the edges with the lightest colors of the distress duo then matted the words on an aqua mist strip which I then antiqued. I stamped the kind part right on the image and adhered the rest of the sentence in front so that it flowed together. The other strip in the sketch I used dark chocolate satin ribbon. I got the card all done and was putting away my ink and I had a tad bit on my finger and I touched the card without knowing!!! So guess what I had this little tiny ink mark right on the top of the image!! I was so perturbed!! I mean it's one thing if you are just starting a card but it is completely another when you are finished!! So what is a girl supposed to do???? I got out my favorite martha stewart punch and punched me some brown butterflies and stuck one over the smidgen of a smudge. One didn't look right so I added two more to even it all out and saved the card!! Whew!! Any one else have that happen.... you get a card done or almost done and somehow you screw it up???? I hope I am not the only one!!
Well I'm off .......... Thanks for looking and have a great day!!!
