CASE this Sketch Guest Designer #339

Happy Thursday!! I hope your week is going well. Happy for Friday!!

Today I am on the blog with a post for CASE this Sketch #339. I won one of the challenges and as my prize, I get to be a guest designer over on the CASE this Sketch Blog this week!! I am so excited!! I would LOVE to design for this site any day!!!

To celebrate, I chose to create a card to use for a type of celebration.

I used scraps for the layered frames, an Ink Blot Shop sentiment and a Clearly Besotted stamp that was colored in with Copic Markers.

Below is the sketch that I used for this card:

I basically stuck to the sketch, with the exception of making the square into a circle. The heart element would be the margarita.

As per usual, I left it a day and came back and added a few things before I felt it was finished. I used a Memory Box stencil with some Twisted Citron Distress Ink to create some green polka dots behind the stamped piece.

I also covered the cherry with Glossy Accents and used a Nuvo Glimmer Pen on the umbrella in the drink.

I had SO MUCH FUN playing with this sketch and I thank Chrissy Larson and the whole design team for letting me play along today!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS day!!!

Hi Nora,

What a fabulous clean and simple card you created - quite eye-catching and the reward of the teeny little martini, what fun! I’ll follow your blog today too! Have a lovely creative week.
