Simply Fabulous--Sketches! {by Tamara} #93

Thanks to all of my supporters I'm still in the MFT Idol competition!! We'll get our new challenge later today and there's no telling what it'll be--those girls are cooking up something tough for us, I'm sure! Next Tuesday we'll do the voting thing all over again and the competition will be brutal!

It's Thursday so it's time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} Sketch Challenge--#93. Here's the sketch:

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, and DP from the Letters From Paradise by Black Market Paper Society. I love it when you can get DP to work for you like this, don't you?!!! The second element is Basic Black with the edges punched with my favorite Martha Stewart border punch and a strip of DP. The sentiment--and focal image--uses a stamp from Verve's Beautiful Kindness set, stamped on Whisper White with Basic Black. It was cut/embossed with a Labels Four die, matted with Kiwi Kiss and Basic Black, and popped up on 3M foam squares. A few black jewels finish it off!

Don't forget to check out the sketch at the Sketches! {by Tamara} blog and give it a try--we'd love to see what you come up with!
