OCC Sketch Challenge

From The Funkie Junkie
A quick post today as I am getting ready to head out for a weekend trip. My huband and I are visiting our daughter who is a college student at Florida State University. She's in her third year there and this is the first year we have had the opportunity of being with her for Parent's Weekend. So I skimped a bit on my card this week too. You will notice that I didn't decorate the inside of this card as I usually do. It feels unfinished to me so next week when I return, I will get going on the interior panels.

I've had this delish Cosmo Cricket designer paper in my stash for a few months now and finally got up the courage to cut into it - LOL!! I know all you paper horders will understand that feeling! I really love their papers and want to hang on to them instead of using them. Our hostess, Lori Rider, has designed this sketch for Our Creative Corner which really challenged me. I actually had all the paper cut and an image colored for a completely different card, but it just wasn't coming together. I wanted a more clean and simple look for this sketch than what I normally produce. So here it is - the best I can do for CAS! I just very lightly sponged the edges with Antique Linen Tim Holtz distress ink and no frayed edges!

The card is mounted on a base of Mellow Moss and Very Vanilla. The filagree frame is Inkadinkado and the defination stamp is SU's Lexicon of Love. The filagree frame was stamped with Versamark and Real Red and clear embossed on a piece of vellum. I trimmed both out and mounted the definations (oval cut with Nesties) on the back of the vellum pieces. And that was that for the moment. Check back next week if you want to see the interior of the card.

Thanks for visiting and maybe even leaving a comment. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.



Update: This card was featured on Card of the Week.
