Unscripted Sketches 5th Blog-iversary + A Giveaway!

Unscripted Sketches is celebrating their 5th Blog-iversary! 

We've got some fun giveaway's planned. 

Head over to the Unscripted Sketches Blog to check out all the fun!!

Here's my take on this week's sketch:


I used some Golden Light Molding Paste with a Prima stencil for my design on black cardstock from PaperTrey Ink. The background paper peeking out from behind is called Everyday Kraft from the Paper Studio. I die cut the burlap flowers using the Tattered Flowers Die from Tim Holtz using the Burlap Stack from DCWV. Sentiment is from Hero Arts called "Thank You For Being My Friend".

For the Blog-iversary I'm giving away a Sympathy Stamp set from Hero Arts called Remember.

To be eligible to win here's what you need to do:

1. Become a follower on either my Blog or my Facebook page (or both!).

2. Leave a comment.

Winner will be chosen at random Friday, April 18th and announced on my blog on Saturday, April 19th. 

Hope you'll join us this week with your take on the sketch above. All the details are on the blog post over at Unscripted Sketches!

That background is beautiful! I thought it was patterned paper til I read your post and found out you made it with molding paste and a stencil! I'm a new follower of your blog.

I really enjoyed this card so simply elegant. I love the treatment you used on the background thought it was just patterned paper but I am sure the texture of the modeling paste and the flowers makes it breathtaking in person. Wow
