Cardabilities Sketch #72 Challenge

Have A Great Day

I thought I'd try to participate in more challenges. That's always something that I've enjoyed and I've gotten away from it the past few years. I've been into making mini albums and not making as many cards except for  Christmas. However, I just LOVE creating mini albums so I will have to work all this in somehow! Working with sketches really jump starts you creatively. I also have so much going on in my life right now that I need this as an escape. So any extra time I have I'm just going to throw myself into crafting. 

I have my favorite sketch blogs whose challenges I like to participate in and Cardabilities is one of them! This is my take on the sketch below. I didn't add a lot of dimension to this card except for the pearls from Queen & Co. I think I created a very clean and simple card from this sketch. 

I used scraps from Graphic 45's Domestic Goddess Collection for the patterned paper. The hexagon shapes are a Creative Memories punch that I've had for years! The banner shapes were cut from Spellbinders Shapeabilities Nested Pennants Die. I inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Vintage Photo...my favorite! For the sentiment I used Hero Arts Clear Stamps - Friends - CL351.
