...Taylored Sketch

This is my submission for this past Friday's Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #80. I used one of the sentiments from Verve's new set Bountiful Backgrounds, along with some patterned paper from the Nouveau Chic Designer Series Paper pack. The sentiment was stamped and embossed on a piece of Vellum, cut out with a Spellbinders' Classic Circle Nestie, then stitched to a circle-cut piece of pattern paper from the same designer paper pack. Some sage-like Grosgrain Ribbon and three Silver Nail Heads were added to finish of the card.

I also have some other news to share with you today. There is a new challenge blog called Crazy 4 Challenges, and I have been asked to join their design team! The site officially opened today, and our first challenge will be posted this Saturday, September 5th. We hope you can come by and join us each week! Here are the other wonderfully talented DT members that will share their creations with you weekly:
That's it for today! I haven't gotten a chance to work on the Mojo Monday Sketch for today, so I will attack it tomorrow along with the Color Challenge that will be posted at SCS. Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you back here tomorrow with another Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge...come join in the fun! Until then...

Love this card. I love the way you put the vellum on the main image panel and sewed it just on the corners. It looks great with that designer paper showing through too. This card is just amazing.

Congrats on being a design team member for Crazy 4 Challenges. You so deserve it. Can't wait to see the challenges.
