Oh yes! Happy Friday to you all! I have had a good week so no complaints here! I stopped home last night and picked up Taylor and we headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to get all of the prep for tonight’s class done. I really do love spending time with Renee, she’s a funny lady and we always have a good laugh! We even Skyped with Andrea for a bit. I couldn’t leave there without picking up some stuff so I got some goodies from the Prima Butterfly line, some Blue Fern Studios Chip Board and some stuff from My Minds Eye Fancy That line. On the way home we stopped at Michaels to pick up some basic card making supplies for Taylor. She wants her own stuff, she has really gotten into card making lately and is even thinking of starting a blog soon! WOW! That would be pretty cool! She made some cards this week and I wanted to post them here but she said that she wants to post them on her blog. Taking after her old man! Here are the two of us in the car with the top down on the way to see Renee…
So today is an extra great Friday because it’s a Fab Friday and here is our sketch challenge…
I don’t know why, maybe because I like the stamp set so much, but I have been in a wedding card mood lately! Today’s card uses a base of Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered with a piece of Something Borrowed Designer Series Paper. The panel is a piece of Basic Black that I heat embossed the Hardwood Background Stamp on it in Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I heat embossed the greeting from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder on Vellum and adhered it on the back of the panel. Some Fun Foam is used as a backing and some SNAIL adheres it to the card. A piece of Sahara Sand that I flagged is tucked under the bottom. I tore off a small strip of the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape and put it on a piece of Whisper White. The edges are trimmed with my Paper Snips and some Foam Tape holds it in place. I wanted my button to match the greeting so I used the Little Pieces Embosslit to cut out some whisper white and heat embossed it with more Ranger Liquid Platinum Embossing Powder. That too is adhered to the Washi Tape with some Foam Tape. Finally some Hazel & Ruby The Makery Shine & Sparkle Sequins and some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins are adhered to the embossed woodgrain to break it up a bit. Another simple card that would be a great wedding one. I think that the black on black woodgrain has a fun look to it! I hope that you enjoyed my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge! Before you go take a quick hop over the blog and see what the rest of talented teammates have done with the sketch! Thanks for sharing some of your Friday with me, have a fab one! 🙂
