Can You Case it? Design Team - Sketch Challenge CYCI #68

Happy Sunday!  It’s been another crazy weekend, but I guess at this point that should be the norm (would hate for lift to be boring!)  Had fun hanging out with the family yesterday and then had some girlfriend fun last night, whoo hoo!  I’m heading to Disneyland next week for the Tinkerbell Race weekend so today it’s all about getting everything packed and ready to go (it’s crazy how much “stuff” I need to pack on “race-cations” but I’m really looking forward to this trip, haven’t been to Disneyland since I was in high school.  Of course since it’s Sunday it’s time for the weekly Can You Case It? Sketch challenge and I really had fun with the clean, simple sketch we were provided.  I know with the excitement of the retiring products announcement I’ll be focusing this month on stamps and products that we’ll be saying goodbye to but we can’t forget some of the fabulous products in the Occasions catalog as well.  So I decided to focus on the Adventure Awaits product suite for today’s card.

I started with Smoky Slate cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of You Plus Me Designer Series Paper (love all these basic black and white patterns that can be used for any occasion).  Next I took a piece of the Adventure Bounds DSP (love these beautiful photographic prints) and I stamped the greeting with the Adventure Awaits Stamp set using Memento Black ink and I matted it with Smoky Slate cardstock before attaching it to the cardfront.

Now I had loads of fun with the embellishments (may have gone a bit overboard, but that’s OK).  I started by punching out a piece of Silver Foil Cardstock with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and then embossed it with the Tiny Triangles Embossing Folder.  I added a piece of Basic Black Chevron Ribbon as a little flag sticking out from behind the circle.  I used some Basic Black Baker’s Twine and made several loops and attached them so they peaked out from behind of the boy I made using the Island Indigo ¼” Cotton Ribbon. 

What do you think, too much?  This is definitely not a “mailable” card but I love how soft it is and would certainly brighten up a day when there isn’t a specific holiday/occasion to celebrate.  This is the best time to surprise someone, when it’s truly unexpected.  The designers are sharing some other great cards so go check them out for further inspiration and come play along, you can use this for any project you need, card, scrapbook page, home décor, etc.
