Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 25

This weeks sketch was a little more difficult than the last few. I am not sure where I got the layout idea but I am very excited to see what everyone comes up with. I had an idea in my head when I went to my studio and all I can say is this was not it! I am not sure where either of my sample cards came from -- they just kind of evolved all by themselves, lol. But actually I kind of like them. Maybe I will have time to try the one I was thinking at another time this week. Anyway, here is the sketch.....






And this is my first sample. This sample is made entirely with scraps. The Old Olive and Real Red squares are textured. The designer paper is from the just retired Summer Picnic.






I also used the rub-ons from SAB. There green flowers on the dp are popped up and the red ones have red brads. You may have to enlarge to see the other details.

Stamps: None
Inks: None
Papers: Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie card stock, Old Olive and Real Red textured card stock, Summer Picnic DP
Other: White gel pen, old olive brads, real red brads, SAB rub-ons misc red buttons.



This next card is the traditional Black and White wedding card -- kinda.
Each layer is popped up, including the circles.





Stamps: Circle of Friendship, To Have and To Hold
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Basic Black and Whisper White
Other, 3/4 inch circle punch, 1/2 inch circle punch, designer label punch, word window punch, three for you punch, white gel pen, cuttlebug embossing folder, faux black brads, black watercolor pencil.

I would love to see what you come up with. Check back around lunchtime (EST) to see the player's samples.

Don't forget to leave a comment with a link if you play along. If you post to SCS please use the key words TSSC25 - no spaces.

Hope there is not too many typos, I needed to get this done fast so it will post in the morning.
