US189, CCC23 - A Gift on the day that got away....


 



Saturday got away from me - by the time I got around to thinking about cardmaking, it was already starting to get dark. So I dug around and found this card I made a while ago, but never posted. It was inspired by a sketch in an old Papercrafts magazine. It qualified for this week's Unscripted Sketch:


I stamped the stripes (Papertrey Faux Ribbon) using each piece of my Spectrum Kaleidecolor ink pad. The gift image is from My Stamp Box. (don't forget there's still a few hours to play along with this week's CASology Cue Card - Gift)!



I'm hoping for a little more crafting time in my craft room on Sunday, but after the hurricane of making over  200 cards for various people last week, what it really needs is a good tidy up!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Fabulous card, Ardyth! That embossing looks divine! I think I "need" that faux ribbon stamp. Thank you for enabling ;) Lol! Hope you are doing well! Sending hugs your way!

I absolutely love how you worked this sketch! Flipping the sketch gives is a completely different look.

You have incorporation so many clever interpretations - especially love the solid black panels in place of the string.

Thanks for choosing to play along with our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches :)
