Feels Good Fab Friday Challenge

Hi friends!  I'm back after another fun filled weekend to share my card for this weeks Fab Friday Sketch Challenge.  I've been having lots of fun with the fabulous products from the Spring catalog but wanted to take a more masculine turn and the Parker's Patterns Designer Series Paper provides the perfect color palette.  The cardbase is Cajun Craze and then I added a piece of Early Espresso cardstock and Crumb Cake (embossed with the Big Shot and Woodgrain embossing folder).  The blue accent pieces are Marina Mist and were punched with the Decorative Label Punch (one on each side).  Next I added a strip of the designer series paper and the Natural 7/16" Trim Ribbon as flags. 
For the greeting I used the Feels Good stamp set and stamped on the Canvas Creations fabric with Early Espresso Ink.  This canvas is really soft and fun to stamp on and provides a more distressed look.  I also sponged around the edge with Crumb Cake and Cajun Craze ink, just like regular cardstock.  I even matted the canvas on Daffodil Delight cardstock (also sponged with Crumb Cake).  The final touch was to add a Naturals Button to the top corner with a bow tied with Early Espresso Baker's Twine for a soft finish.

I love how this card turned out with so many different textures and colors, you find something new to draw your attention each time you look at it.  Now check out the sketch we were working with, so fun and open to so many possibilities with shapes, etc. you've got to try it out for yourself.
I would love for you to leave a comment and let me know what you think and share your cards.

Pin It!


  1. I love all the layering you have on your card! The 2 Decorative Label punches are an especially nice feature. You may have inspired me to finally cut into my Canvas! Thanks for sharing with us at Fab Friday!

    1. Thanks Amanda. I've definately been saving the canvas as well, but hope to use it more now.

  2. Oh wow I love all the elements on your card! Love the canvas combined with that dsp! And the woodgrain is absolutely perfect here! TFS!

    1. Thanks Amy! I had so much fun playing with all the great new items and love how they work together so well.
