Sarah Kay Challenge#14

Thank you so much to everyone who left me a sweet message on how my daughter Toni and I celebrate the life of my son, Daniel! I really appreciate it. She may only know him through my stories and pictures but Toni always make sure to include her brother in our daily lives. She maybe a brat, sometimes (yes, you Toni!) but she truly is my Earth Angel. Love you, Mom!

Anyway, it's been week's since the last time I played with my Sarah Kay stamps and regret that I haven't been participating on the challenges but it's another sketch challenge and here's my take.

I pulled the colors from the American Crafts patterned paper and used that as my color combination. The lace scallop punch is by Martha Stewart. The only thing I don't care about this card is the gross grain ribbon that I used and should've used a wider ribbon instead.

I have another card that I made last night for 2 Sketches 4 You but cannot get a descent picture. This card was a little dark also but I guess I just have to settle with it.

Stamps: Rosalie's Bicycle by Sarah Kay

Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip card stock from Stampin' Up and American Crafts patterned paper

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Pretty in Pink gross grain ribbon, stampin' dimensional, Prima flowers, MS lace scallop border and Self-adhesive rhinestone

You 'color' so well! It's a challenge for me (hee)! I love the ribbon on there and that decorative edge as well!

I love this card! I really like the jewels in the middle of the flowers. I also like the skinnier ribbon. Great work! :0)

This is fabulous! I love the lacy edge and I think the ribbon is perfect.

Every time we go to Michael's Tim says we can't buy anything from the convict! MEN! A friend of mine bought a punch of hers and it won't punch through cardstock. That would bum me out as I use cardstock often.

Some day maybe I'll get some SK stamps or have someone send me images.

Beautiful work as usual!
