CAGI Sketch

Wow, where did the weekend go??


I cannot believe that my weekend has come to an end.  Although when you spend half your Saturday morning taking a little person to dancing and then today I have been at the Western Sydney Community Indoor Market - yes I can understand why it went so fast.


It has been a beautiful winter’s day here in Sydney and I have met some wonderful people at the markets today plus I was able to continue working on some new box/card ideas.  So what more can you ask for!


It’s Sunday and that means it is time for a new challenge at Come and Get It.  This week it is a sketch challenge which has been created by Cindy.


The sketch can be seen below and you can see what the other Design Team members have created by clicking on the picture to take you to the challenge.


Cindy Sketch



I love this sketch that Cindy has created - to me it is a great sketch to create a quick card and use some scrap pieces of paper.


For my card I have used scraps of the Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper, layered them together and punched out 3 squares using the 1-1/4” (3.2 cm) square punch.


The base of my card is Pool Party and I added a strip of Poppy Parade.  The Poppy Parade has a scallop edge on one side which has been created using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.


I punched out 3 of the large flowers from the Boho Blossoms. The flowers were squashed and crumbled them until they separated and are held together with a clear rhinestone brad.


The scrap paper squares and Soft Suede flower have been added to the card using dimensionals.


The sentiment “Wonderful You” is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set which is in the Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.


Here is my card for the challenge:







Stamp set: Loving Thoughts

Card: Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede

Ink: Soft Suede

Accessories:  1-1/4” (3.2 cm) Square Punch, Clear Rhinestone Brad, Boho Blossom Punch, Attic Boutique DSP, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



This was a very quick card to make and it was great to be able to use the scraps of paper too!


I would also like to submit this card into the following challenges:

Meighan I love the card, I think the unique way you put the squares together is great, and that flower is perfect to go with it. The whole card is amazing.
