Die Cuttin Divas Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

WOW did I ever underestimate how much time I'd actually have during the summer to do my crafting! I cannot believe I am only able to really accomplish 1 project a week! I do however find myself really putting forth more effort in what I am able to put together. Like this card for instance. I am so incredibly happy with how it turned out!

This week is the weekly sketch challenge over at Die Cuttin Divas. I was so excited to work with this sketch because it's so gorgeous!

Here is the way I interpreted it!

I am so thrilled with how this card turned out! The sunflower is from Stretch Your Imagination. I embossed the middle with Swiss Dots, coated the pedals and stem with glossy accents and used Studio G glitter glue on the leaves. The background paper is all inked and I used D'vine Swirl embossing folder on the right side. The sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps (PK-288 Skunk Cheer Up Set), stamped with Technique Tuesday Chalk Ink Pads and the frame is from Gypsy Wanderings. I added some lady bug brads from the Eyelet Outlet and some adhesive pearls from Oriental Trading Company. The ribbon is from Tim Holtz Idea-ology Lavish Trimmings and I inked it with his coordinating crushed olive distress ink. I machine stitched the edges for the final touches! Also the frame and sunflower are popped from the card with ek success 3D dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by. We'd love to see what you create from the provided sketch! Be sure to enter your project HERE for a chance to win this weeks great prize!!


  1. This is gorgeous. I love how you embossed the paper. Great use of the lady bugs.


  2. Like the wonderful details you put into the sketch card. The challenge site does not have the DT links in place to click on so I had commented that I wanted to be able to see the DT creations on the DT's blog but did not get a response. Glad you commented on mine so I could see how you wonderfully put the details into your card. Especially like your use of the glossy accents & Tim Holtz distress ink. Thank you for the nice comments on my 'take Flight" & "spread your Wings" card.
