Blogger's Challenge #114: Sketch Challenge!


When I first looked at the sketch from Lisa this week, I immediately pictured using the folding tag from the Bigz Two Tags die, a Stampin' Up exclusive die. I also snuck two of the smaller Sizzlet dies, Little Leaves and Floral Fusion, two other SU exclusive dies.

I made this card for a friend who recently had surgery. Thought she could use a little pick me up. Here's a picture of it with the tag open:



Can you see the texture that the Texturz Plate Perfect Details adds?

Here is the sketch we were given from Lisa. Isn't it a great one?



Thanks for looking and be sure to see what the other players are up to this week!

What a wonderful idea to use the bookmark pocket for the focal point on a card.. Feels like it makes the card more personal, the fact you have to open the little pouch. would make an awesome valentines message, with a hidden love note.. Super cool idea Lisa!

Lisa Somerville said...

Love the bright card Lisa - the inside would also be perfect for a gift card!

MJ said...

What a cute idea Lisa. I love this. I may try it with a gift card inside. I don't have the die though so I will have to make up something. Great job with the sketch.
