Blogger's Challenge #133: Sketch


This is the sketch we were to use this week for our blogger's challenge card.  This sketch lends itself to many ideas, a very simple sketch that I know I will go back to.  It was also a great sketch to use up some scraps I had in my scrap bin.



The two strips were pulled out of my scrap bin along with the green card front.  I had several of these for a swap that I never got around to using so I made a few cards last night with them. 



Card details:
Stamp Set:  Thankful Flourishes by Our Craft Lounge, Thank You Limited Edition set from Clear & Simple Stamps 
Cardstock:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, My Mind's Eye "Girl" Stripe/Lime Paper, 
strips from scrap bin
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics to color
Accessories:  Designer Mix Brads from Clear & Simple Stamps, paper piercer
