I love sketch challenges. Sometimes my design "eye" needs help. The sketch challenge over at CAS(E) this sketch #130 is so much fun, and I really wanted to play with some baubles for the challenge at Shopping Our Stash this week.
My sweet and talented blogging friend Greta has sent me some felt strips awhile back, sometime around when I last reorganized my crafting area. You guessed it, they were put away so well I couldn't find them. This morning I put in an effort to find them. They were put in a stainless steel box I have on my crafting table RIGHT IN FRONT OF MY NOSE!
I used my long owned but rarely used MFT rolled roses. I don't have good sized leaf dies, but I do have a little surfboard from MFT's sea charms. I added another leaf in the form of a stick pin, and another stick pin with green glass beads---these are my baubles.
I wanted those roses to be towards the center of the card where the bracket edge dips. I also did not want the pins competing with the embossed background...so I put the card stock into the embossing folder at a wonky angle. PERFECT! I pushed at the edge creases with my bone folder so it looks pretty flat on the unembossed areas.
I am not so sure it is CAS...but it does more or less follow the sketch ( moved the sentiment)...so I am going with it. Only 30 more stickpins to use up!
Thanks for stopping by!
