A Little Sketchy

Today's card is for the MIUM Sketch Challenge over at Stamp TV AND the Simon Says Monday Challenge, Say It With Stamps, where the sentiment/phrase shines through!

I chose to turn the Sketch on it's side, and here is what I came up with:

I used the Poster Board Sentiments stamp set from Gina K Designs.   The Designer Paper is from S-E-I, Dill the colors this paper pack has to offer.  I cut the flower out with a Sizzix folded die, that cuts AND embosses at once, Old Country Bloom.  I am so happy I FINALLY remembered to use my Scor-Bug Embossing Tool.  So quick and easy, I just placed the orange card stock on my scoring pad and lined the tool up in the groove where you would normally use your bone folder/scoring tool.  Adds such a nice even border.  Easy Peasy!  I cropped the FRIEND off  one of the stamps and made it into a little tag.  Added a button and some twine to complete the card.
PLENTY of time still left to play on BOTH Challenges.  I suggest you check them out!
And as always........ENJOY!!!
