SS#51 - Make Extraordinary Memories ...


I have my DT card again today for the Sunday Sketch challenge over at PaperWorksCo.  I decided to go with something very different and away from my normal style.  These gorgeous papers by Cosmo Cricket (Earth Love) landed on my doorstep from Peggy and with the Fall sason now upon us I wanted to go with something very 'earthy' and 'rustic'.

This weeks sketch really lends itself to using a sentiment as a focal point so that is what I decided to do.  Instead of using the sentiment off to the side that is where I decided to add my 'embellishments'.  I added some distressing to the paper edges to add more of the rustic feel and inked the sentiment up on brown Rich Cocoa Memento ink.  The back panel is embossed with one of the new cuttlebugs polka dot folders - love this one - it's very different from the Swiss Dots.  Chocolate brown ribbon, buttons and some twine complete the card. 

Hope you're able to participate in this weeks Sunday Sketch and pop over to PaperWorksCo blog to see all the latest happenings.  Thanks for your visit today - I always appreciate you coming by and taking the time to leave me a comment - I love to read them all!

Take care,
Danielle x
