...Sketch Challenge #173

This is my submission for today's Sketch Challenge at SCS. I turned the sketch over to make it open at the bottom instead of the side, though. The cardstock colors that I used today are as follows: Regal Rose, Ruby Red, River Rock, and Chocolate Chip. The designer papers are from the Ginger Blossoms Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. The edges of the lighter designer paper pieces were sponged with River Rock Classic Ink and a Sponge Dauber. The sentiment is from the Verve Visual set "Serenity", and it is the only stamping that I used for this creation. It was stamped directly onto the designer paper in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink. I faux stitched around each panel with a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, then used the Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker to create the stitching. Three flowers were cut from the same designer paper and attached to the sentiment using Dimensionals. Each panel was also popped up off of the card using Dimensionals, and some Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon completes the card.

That's it for today, but I will be back tomorrow with a card for the Ways To Use It Challenge, and maybe another one for goof measure! Thanks for stopping by, and until later....Hugs ~ Mercy
