AAA Cards Challenge #100 - Sketch

Today I'm here to tell you all about the new challenge at AAA Cards. There's a very simple sketch to follow, so what could be easier than that!

Here's my take:

I used an embossing folder on the bottom section of a purple cardbase and then rubbed some green Creative Expressions Glitter Kiss all over it.

I then stamped the greeting onto white card and added it to the top of the cardbase and then balanced that out with a narrower strip at the bottom. Look how sparkly the Glitter Kiss looks in the pic below.

Three gems on the curls of the greeting and I was done.

Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Scripty Sayings
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Creative Expressions, Glitter Kiss, sea green
Embossing: Crafts Too folder
Embellishments: Gems from my stash

So how will you use this sketch? I think it's a really good one to encourage you to keep CAS and leave plenty of empty white space, but if you need more inspiration be sure to go take a look at the AAA Cards DT and our brilliant Guest Designer Sue's creations - HERE.  They're just fabulous!

I'm so pleased you had time to drop by my blog today and hope you enjoyed your visit. See you again soon and keep crafting!
