Sketch This Challenge


Here is my final card for the Sketch This Card! Challenge. I almost forgot to do it and that would stink cause it is a three week challenge and this is the final week.

**Stampin Stuff** The card base is chocolate chip with a layer of blush blossom. Then I added another layer of chocolate chip which the main vanilla layer is matted to. I used my Cuttlebug swirl folder to emboss a piece of copper that I found while organizing my schtuff. I stamped the flowers from Happy Harmony twice and faux stitched around the edge. I added three copper brads and mounted the matted sentiment with mini pop dots {to hide the fact that I smudged the original sentiment that I stamped directly on the main card layer}. Pheeeew....lots of layers on this card but adds a nice clean touch to the card.

I also like the copper.....I have all the copper embellishments but never use them....brads, eyelets, cord, tags, embossing powder and pattern paper....why aren't I using these items?!? Maybe I need to start my own Copper Challenge....hmmmm there's a thought....then it will motivate me to use up my schtuff!!!

I LOVE this card, and especially the sentiment. I may have to steal it for my walls...... Love the copper too. You should use it more! ;-)

I love the copper as well! I never thought about using that in my cuttlebug. Great idea!
