thinking of you in blue

Happy Friday, to you!  I hope this week has been inspirational.  If not, grab a coffee/latte/tea/coke, whatever the beverage of your choice.  The talented Tammy F. from the Sketch Frenzy Friday, has a fun and creative sketch for you to try this week.  Here is her sketch:


For those of you who visit, know that I trade shapes for shapes.  This sketch has four squares clustered together.  And, I didn't use four squares.  Here is my card:


The card base is very vanilla cardstock.  The main panel is pool party textured cardstock.  I just love this paper.  It's new and in the mini catalog.  You can sand the cardstock to reveal the white core.  Very fun!  I used my framelets to cut the basic black cardstock.  I inked the text background stamp: En Francias in VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder and heat embossed the text.  I used my trio blossom hand-held punch to create the blossoms.  I used First Edition DSP and a scrap piece of the pool party I used for the main panel.  I added a pearl center.  For the fourth 'square' I opted to create a sentiment banner.  Can you guess, that I just love these?!  I cut a scrap piece of very vanilla cardstock to 1/2" wide.  I stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in basic black classic ink.  I used a square hand-held punch to create the banner end.  I used my sewing machine to secure the banner to the decorative label piece.
I hope we have inspired you to play along with us this week @ SFF.
