It's Friday, Featuring....

This Friday, I am featuring another card I made for the Card Patterns weekly sketch challenge. Last week, I was randomly chosen the winner of a stamp set from MFT - woohoo! This week's sketch challenge has a prize being offered by Scrap My Memories - could I get lucky 2 weeks in a row??

Here's the card:



And here's another view - then I'll give you the deets:

Yep the sketch featured an oval framed image on the front but to make it a little more interesting, I cut an oval from the card front and added the image to the inside so from the front you only see a portion of what's inside. It was challenging getting the oval just right and the image added correctly but I think it turned out great!

The image is from Impression Obsession, colored with Copics, of course, and the beautiful striped paper is from Basic Grey.

I trimmed the outside with a couple of strips from another patterned paper and some matching ric rac along the bottom (hard to see- if you click the picture, it will be larger and easier to see). Then I added some random buttons tied with some inked floss. The saying stamp is from Close To My Heart.

I am heading our of town for the next few days (hubby is in a bowling tournament and it's the only chance we ever have to go anywhere!) so there may not be a sketch for Sunday.

Have a creative weekend!
