Friday Sketchers, just in time...



I got a challenge done! Whoo Hoo, almost too late, but got it done! Friday Sketchers has a great sketch and was fun to work with. And even more fun is I used one of the adorable Sarah Kay images that I just love. This is "First Kiss", how cute. And colored with my Copics, to match the colors in the papers.
My papers, dark brown card stock for the base, then a chocolate brown for the mats. The pattern papers are wonderful.. yummy... sparkly with lots of glitter. They are from My Minds Eye Laundry Line. I doodled around the image with little hearts, X's and O's, seemed to fit. After matting, I found two metal photo turns, and mini brads. The blue color card stock... don't know what color it is.. anyway I punched the bottom of it with Martha's Valentine Punch and then inked all around the edges of everything before attaching. The band across the center is a American Crafts
cream and dotted satin ribbon.
For the sentiment... not so crazy about that. I punched two Martha scallop hearts, and then hand wrote "1st Kiss" on them.
Love the sketch, and so happy for the first time in a long time I got to join in a sketch just for fun.
Who knows maybe tomorrow I will have another one! I hope to have some crafting time again later today - if Hubby doesn't come up with some project he wants to work on... you know what it is like on their days off!
