Sketches! {by Tamara} #99

It's time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} challenge and here's the sketch:

This was a nice sketch to work with--I can see it being used over and over. My base card is Whisper White with layers of Kiwi Kiss, Caribbean Blue (by Creative Memories), Yoyo Yellow, and DP from the Citrus Mat Pack by DCWV. The focal image is by Karen Lockhart and was stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was cut/embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and matted with Yoyo Yellow, Caribbean Blue (CM), and Kiwi Kiss then popped up on 3M foam squares. The sentiment is from a hostess set called Sweet Little Sentiments and was stamped on Whisper White with Tuxedo Black in and punched out with the Word Window punch. Then it was layered on all three colors of cardstock which were cut/embossed with Spellbinders label dies. I added a button to each end and popped it up on foam squares. A turquoise striped ribbon was all it needed to finish it off, I think.

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!
