Design Team Challenge: Get Sketchy with it!

Good Morning!

This is Jen from 3 Cats and a Bug. This week at SweetSassyDiva's the DT is following a sketch.

I did two cards, but only because I really didn't like the first one. The drawback for me when that happens is that I don't take pictures during the process of making a new one. The first card, the ugly one lol, I used pinks and purples and weaved the ribbon through the border. The border (on both cards) was cut at 1.5 x 4.25 from MS Elegant. After weaving the ribbon through it, I ran it through my Xyron to hold everything in place.

I cut two pieces of paper at 4.25 x 1.75 and 4.25 x .75. I used some cuttle bug border embossing folders on both pieces. I also cut two smaller pieces at 1.75 x 1.75 and 1.75 X 2.75. The background piece was cut at 4.25 x 5.75. (The size is a bit odd because I have some envelopes that are smaller than normal.)

I cut a rose and it's layers from Walk in my Garden at 2.75 and added some stickles.

(Click on the picture to increase the size to see the embossing)
