Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch Challenge and SSINK Friday Favorites: Friendly Wishes

Happy Friday!  It’s the last day of July, can’t believe we’re starting to think about summer winding down, it’s really not possible.  We’re looking forward to a fun weekend now that everyone is back at home, whoo hoo!  Today over on the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog we have a fun sketch challenge and I decided to combine it with the Stylin' Stampin' INKspirationblog Friday Favorities post.  There are lots of favorites in this new catalog but the two I used on today’s card are the Friendly Wishes Stamp set and Deco Labels Framelits (originally I thought these framelits were retired so I was so excited to see them around for another year).  This sketch is nice and easy and is a great way to show off lots of great DSP, embossing, etc. lots of possibilities.

I started with Marina Mist cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Basic Black cardstock for a mat before adding a piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and Chevron Embossing Folder and a piece of Gold Designer Series Paper from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (I love this font print and the addition of silver and gold paper to this years pack is fabulous!!)  Next I wrapped a piece of Whisper White 3/8” Stitched Satin Ribbon around the cardfront and tied a knot.

The greeting is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set and all I did was use some Tuxedo Memento Black Ink to stamp on Marina Mist cardstock and then cut it out with the Big Shot and Deco Labels Framelits before attaching with dimensionals.

I really like the clean easy lines with this sketch and the other design team members came up with some great cards you should go check out for inspiration and then play along (try using this sketch for your next project and see how you like it!!)
