Card Sketch July #5

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Happy Wednesday! Another week, another card sketch! This one has room for a quote and small embellishment, but switch it up, remember you don't HAVE to stick to sketches! Use them as inspiration! The sketch girls changed things up, switched things around and I think gave us every option for this one! As usual the digital template is available free in my store for a LIMITED TIME, snag it while you can!

I had fun with this one. Thought I had lots of quote stamps and rub-ons but for the life of me cannot find a single one (typical!). This is what I get for trying to organize! Lol! As I mentioned on Saturdays I am dedicated to using my STASH! These are the scraps of the old Colorbok papers paired with a MM metal accent. I used Sakura pens to color the heart in the charm to match the color scheme. I've shared this technique before but repeating a sentiment stamp gives the look of a quote if like me you can't find them!

I love looking at all the example layouts you post every week. Sometimes I get a template and have no idea what to do with it, but seeing so many different styles really gets the inspiration flowing. Thanks for sharing.
