Well, it's later than usual for me but once I started making this card, I just kept going and that was the end of that ;)
JAI have a sketch for us this week. Now, I had an SU delivery today. I had 3 new stamp sets to choose from (although I haven't used some of my other newbies yet) and I was just so stuck as to which set to use. I ended up choosing the Reason to Smile set (two step).
This sketch is pretty cool. I really should try more sketch challenges. I was a bit intimidated by them when I first started a couple of months ago, but after having a couple under my belt, I will try them more often.
Here is my card
I have used Whisper White as the card and then added SU DSP. Over that, I have used Whisper White and Red Riding Hood Ribbons. I have embossed the square piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with a Script folder. The larger of the Framelit Dies, I have sponged with Real Red and Whisper White ink. The smaller Framelit Die, I have stamped the two step flower with Perfect Plum and Basic Black. I also used the Perfect Plum to ink the edges and create the somewhat crazy pattern.
Here is the sketch from JAI

I changed the circle shape to the Framelit dies as I STILL don't have any circle dies lol (well not big enough ones anyway).
I didn't add a sentiment to the card as I thought it just wasn't necessary.
While I am here, I would also like to say a big thank you to Kim and Patrice for their beautiful cards that I received in the post. I reckon there's nothing better than receiving a handmade card from someone.
Thanks girls xx
Thanks for looking xx
