Here is the sketch for this week:
Here is my card:
I started with Outdoor Denim Carstock, and used my bonefolder and scorpal to add dry embossed stripes on the cardstock. This just gives it a bit of texture. I then choose to use the New Arianna paper. I even used the Zipstrip from this sheet to add a sort of balance to the card. I colored some Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon(which is now retired, so sad) with Ruby reinker. The sentiment and flower come from the Love This Stamp Set(B1432). I used Sorbet, Sweet Lead and both shades from Ruby as well as my Alcohol Blending Pen to color the flower. The sentiment is stamped in Slate. The mat is Crystal Blue and I used my sanding file to distress the edges.
I hope you like my card, and will take the time to head over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see the design teams awesome creations.
