JustRite Friday Challenge #066: Sketch

It has been quite some time since I have participated in a JustRite Friday Challenge. My cousin is pregnant with a little girl so I thought I'd get her card made that I'll send with the baby gifts and this week's sketch challenge gave me the boost I needed. Here's a peek at the sketch...

And here's my take on the sketch...

As you can see, I rotated the sketch and made my card vertical instead of horizontal. Do you see that Chevron background? I was sooooo excited when JustRite released some new background stamps and as soon as Scrap-Mart got the Chevron in stock I grabbed it! Now, my love for this stamp could very well have something to do with the fact that the sample on the packaging is pink, but I love it nonetheless. So, I cut my cardbase using some Pretty in Pink SU! cardstock then stamped the Chevron Background onto some white cardstock and trimmed it down. I decided that it needed a decorative border so I pulled out my Spellbinders Classic Bracket Edgeabilities and the new Classic Decorative Inserts One. I cut the border on a separate piece of cardstock then trimmed and added my Chevron piece to it. The decorative insert I used actually has more to it but the pierced scallops is all I wanted to show. Here's a closer view of the bordered edge...

Before adhering my border layer to the card base, I added some crinkled ribbon trim. I topped the bow off with a button and some heart pins. Next, I stamped my image from JustRite's Just Ducky cling set and colored it with my Copic Markers. I cut it out using my Spellbinders Circle Nestabilities (S4-116)then masked and airbrushed the background before removing it from the die. For the sentiment, I used the 'Special Delivery' stamp from the Just Because Set. It was cut and embossed using the pennant from the Spellbinders Lacey Pennants set and tucked under the bow.

You still have time to get in on this week's challenge. And if you miss it, they'll post another one this Friday.

Duck: Y000, Y02, Y06, Y08, YR01, YR12, YR16

I see that you dropped by the old blogaroonie! It was GREAT to have you here last weekend. I can't wait to tell Joyce all about it, and to make plans for a scrap weekend! I want to SEE your she-art when you make it. Post pics! I actually had to make a Wal-Mart run for plastic baseball card covers for my ATCs! It felt funny. LOL
