EBTKS Sketch Challenge 17 & Wee Memories Challenge #11: Let's Get Sticky

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Good morning, everyone!  I'm coming you, today, with my take on Everything But the Kitchen Sink's Sketch Challenge 17.
I've, also, combined it with Wee Memories' Challenge #11: Let's Get Sticky to incorporate stickers, of any kind, into your project.  I, actually, made this card, before I saw Jenny's challenge and was thrilled that it fit perfectly :).  Here's what I came up with.
I started this card by cutting the cloud-like shape in the top center of a square of Basic Gray cardstock.  I, then, clear embossed the "Thinking of You" sentiment, in the center of the shape, on the Taken With Teal, cardstock, card face.  A white-threaded, straight, machine stitch was, then, ran around the outside edges of the Basic Gray cardstock, as well as it being wrapped, below the cut shape, with a sheer, white ribbon, tied in a bow, before it was adhered, with dimensionals, to the card face.  Last, but, certainly, not least, a gorgeous, dimensional, butterfly sticker was added, partially, with dimensionals, to the bottom left of my cut shape.
I know this next angle is much darker, but I love the way it shows off the shine of the embossed sentiment and the layers of the butterfly's clear, glittery wings.
We've got a fun morning, at the library, planned, to beat the heat, today, and my baby girl is beginning to stir from her sleep, so I've got to run.  But, please, come back, later this afternoon, for my take on Embellish Magazine's Babies Color Challenge; and in the meantime, have a spectacular day!
