A very happy Friday to you all! I do love me some Friday! Anything exciting going on this weekend? Will you be spending some time with you families on Easter? I’ll be going over to see my parents for dinner and probably see the child. Easter is so much more fun when you are a kid. Remember Easter egg hunts, Easter baskets and getting dressed up? I miss the Easter baskets the most, I do love some chocolate!
Every other Friday means that it’s time for Fab Friday! You guys had some great entries for our last challenge I can’t wait to see what you do with this one! This time around we have a sketch challenge for you…
Mt card begins with a base of Sahara Sand Card Stock. I used the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Whisper White for the background. The main panel is stamped with images from the By the Tide Stamp Set and backed with a piece of Midnight Muse. The background is stamped in Sahara Sand. I stamped the fish in Crumb Cake and used an eyeshadow applicator (bought especially for this purpose, LOL!) to color him in with Midnight Muse. He is fussy cut and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere him to the card. A piece of Sahara Sand that is punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch is adhered along the bottom and the whole panel is mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A piece of paper from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack is flagged on the left. On top of that is a piece of adhesive cork shelf liner. The greeting is from the From My Heart Stamp Set and is stamped in Midnight Muse. For a little sparkly bubbles I adhered some silver sequins that I had stashed away in an old craft bin. This will make quite a cool masculine birthday card for someone in the near future. I love the cork and the sequins, they are a nice way to mix it up! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for the Fab Friday Sketch challenge. Click over to the blog to see what my talented fellow designers have come up with and I look forward to seeing your card in the gallery. Have yourselves a fab Friday! 🙂
