Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge: See Ya Later

Happy Friday, yeah!  It’s amazing, I know Friday’s come along once a week but it never fails, I’m always excited for their arrival.  This one is extra special since we’re going to finish of Aidan’s birthday celebration and are having all the kid’s over tomorrow for a party full of good, laughter, and games (we have the Party Trailer coming and Aidan has been excited for months).  Today I’m back with my card for this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge and this one is extra special since this is the first sketch challenge that I’ve personally designed, I hope you like it!  I also decided that since we’re in the heart of Sale-a-Bration I would really focus on several of the SAB goodies you can earn for FREE during this sale.  The cardbase is Sahara Sand and I added a layer of Pool Party that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Decorative Dots Texture Embossing Folder (SAB Freebe #1).  I then took a sponge and some Sahara Sand ink to help distress the paper.  I added a strip of the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper (SAB Freebee #2) that was matted with Pistachio Pudding (this piece was punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch).  I added some Summer Starfruit Baker’s Twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories Kit (SAB Freebe #3) which is super fun and is thicker than our standard twine as a heads up.

The greeting is from the See Ya Later stamp set and is super fun!  I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the stamp before stamping and then cut the image out with the Big Shot and Circle Collection Framelits and then used the 2 ½” Circle Punch to cut a mat out of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock (I love that one of the framelits fits perfectly inside the 2 ½” Circle Punch for a perfect mat).  For the remaining circle elements I used the same DSP package and Sahara Sand cardstock along with the ½”, ¾”, 1”, and 1 ¼” Circle Punches to cut out all the different circles.  The final touch a little arrow in Basic Black that was cut with the Big Shot and Label Card Thinlit Die (the elements that come with these Thinlit sets are awesome!).  There are lots of dimensionals on this card, on the stamped image and the arrow for added dimension.

This card is super fun and I’m in love with this years SAB offerings (make sure you stock up now while you can get these items for FREE) and I have to admit the colors in this designer series paper are not what I would normally put together but they’re so fun and can work for either guy or girl cards which is awesome.  I hope you have some time to play along with our sketch this week, would love to see what you create.

Have a great weekend and happy stamping!
