CSS Alumni "Sketch Blog Hop"

Hello my friends! Welcome to another CSS Alumni Blog Hop. This time, we have a beautiful sketch by our very talented Melissa Cash.


Now, if you are here from Joy's blog you are in the right place, if not please start from StampTV so you don't miss any of the wonderful creations :)

Here is my take on the sketch.

Directions:
  • Make card base from Kraft Cardstock using Circle Eyelet Nestabilities.
  • Die-cut a piece of patterned paper using Circle Nestabilities, emboss and stencil it as well.
  • Die-cut, emboss and stencil a piece of White Cardstock using Oval Nestabilities, Adhere it to card with tape.
  • Stamp image on White Cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black, color it with Prismacolor Pencils. Cut out image and add Stickles.
  • Stamp sentimento on White CS in Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Die-cut, emboss and stencil it using Fancy Tags Nestabilities. Cut out right side of tagd and adhere it to card with Foam tape.
  • Adhere cut out image to card.
  • Add 3 Medium Nailheads and bow.

Card recipe:
Now, hop over to Deb"s blog and see what she has done for us today.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (May 17th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!

Have fun hopping!
