Fab Friday Sketch Challenge #FabFri157: Part of My Story

Good morning!

With our crazy schedule lately it seems like I haven't had much time in the studio, I need to change that as my crafting time really helps reduce my stress and calms me, anyone else feel that way?  Today I'm playing along with the Fab Friday sketch challenge to make this fun card that mixes Sale-a-bration and Annual catalog goodies.

I started with Petal Pink cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Gray Granite cardstock as a mat for the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper (this was my first time using this paper and you have to think beyond baby because this paper has some great patterns.  I used the Big Shot and the Eclectic Layers Thinlits to cut the geometric shape in the background so the cardstock can peak through as my design element along the right side on the sketch, just to change things up.

For the main stamped image I used the Part of My Story stamp set (a Sale-a-bration freebie) and used my Stampin' Write Marker's to color in the stamp before stamping on Whisper White Cardstock.  Next I cut it out with the Big Shot and Layering Circles Framelits and sponged all over with the Gray Granite ink.  As a mat for the circle I took one of the Colored Doilies and flipped it over and sponged on the back using Petal Pink ink.  Dimensionals were used to pop the circle up from the doily mat.

The finishing touch on the card is the heart which I made my using another one of the thinlits in the Eclectic Thinlits set (no this piece only embosses, doesn't cut out, but it was really easy to cut out with Paper Snips and then I attached little pearls on all the line intersections before attaching it to the cardfront with dimensionals.

I love the colors and textures on this card that really play against the different geometric shapes, a fun sketch for sure.
