TAMARA'S SKETCH CHALLENGE

It's that time again!! Sketches by Tamara is having a Blast from the Past sketch week and selected a favorite from the archives to bring back this week!! It's one of my favorites, so I was happy to see it!! I did my sample a little bit different than the sketch - instead of making the whole card round, I used lots of rounded elements, including the corners of the card, and added a scalloped circle to the card! I had fun using my Big Shot Layered Flowers die, these flowers are sooo fun to play with!! This card came together pretty quickly as there wasn't much stamping (just the sentiment). Make sure you go on over to Tamara's and check out what the rest of the DT did for this one - you will be glad you did!! And, why not try this one for yourself? Just upload the link to Tamara's site so we can all see and get yourself entered in for the chance to be the Featured Friday stamper! Now, off to cut and stamp some more- I have three classes over the next three days so lots to do!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
