Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #33...

Well I finally finished Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #33. Check out Beate's Blog if you want to do the challenge. For this challenge I knew I wanted to use Serendipity. It was a challenge b/c I am not used to doing cards this size, but I think I pulled it off. My base was Bamboo Textured CS and then I added a piece of Serendipity B&T on the base and added 3 Colonial White Bigger Brads on the B&T. Next I added a strip of Chocolate Textured CS down the middle and paper pierced the edges. Die cuts came in the Serendipity paper pack, so that is what I used for the flowers. They are Dutch Blue Textured CS Flowers! I also used some Bamboo die cuts and added a pewter spiral clip for the center of the flower. Then I added a big bronze brad to finish it off. I used some polka dot ribbon and made my tag with a 1" Circle Punch in Dutch Blue and a 3/4" circle punch in Bamboo. Then I used my For Every Occassion Stamp set to stamp the word "Hi" on the Bamboo circle. When I was done with the cards, I thought it needed something else...so I decided to sand the Bamboo and Chocolate CS! Hope you like!!!

Stamps: For Every Occasion (CTMH) Paper: Serendipity B&T, White Daisy CS, Bamboo Textured CS & Chocolate Textured CS (CTMH) Ink: Chocolate Other: Colonial White Bigger Brads, Pewter Spiral Clips, Serendipity Die Cuts, Chocolate Waxy Flax, Sanding Block (CTMH), Polka Dot Ribbon (Ribbon FX), 1"Cirlce Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Paper Piercer

Hiya Jenn

Hello and welcome to SBS11, they have officially listed all our names now, so I thought I would do some catching up as I seem to be a little slow in introducing myself. Your blog looks great, will pop by often to say Hi! Happy crafting, take care xx vicki xx
