Back on Track


Sometimes I miss the writing down the stories where the driving force behind a card.  Now it seems as thought I have run out of time to share it our I didn't have time to search for an inspiring quote. I'll get back on track one of these days...for my own sanity I need to!


Skipping Stones Design is back again with another lovely sketch from Angi! Details are on the blog about the sketch challenge, rules and prizes, and please be sure to stop by to the see the absolutely amazing projects from the desginers and guest designers!

To achieve a resemblance of the fun sketch, I scored a card stock piece at an angle with a Scor-Buddy and topped it with a die cut piece of patterned paper. On top of all is a colored butterfly from Healing Wings and then finished with a sentiment from Always Here. The beautiful color mix is from The Play Date Cafe.


Supplies:
Carstock: (So Saffron) SU, (White) Office Max

Patterned Paper: (Wanted Collection) Cosmo Cricket
Stamps: (Healing Wings, Always Here) Skipping Stones Design
Ink: (Rich Cocoa) Memento, (Vintage Photo Distress) Ranger
Other: (Markers) Copic, SU
