Black Friday Challenge/NBKS sketch challenge

Hello everyone! Did any of you brave going out on Black Friday? I went out for a short time to Mike's and found a few things ...then came home to my lovely package from CHF. I am totally in love with this new backgrounder, Ortamental Vines! SO pretty and versitile.

So I whipped up this card for the Stamp Something challenge (use black) and the Never Been Kissed Scrappers sketch challenge.

I stamped the backgrounder in Berry Sorbet onto some creamy cardstock. Then I cut out 3 Label One dies and 3 Square Nesties. I decided which part of the backgrounder I liked and inked that part and layed my Label One die cut right face down on top of the backgrounder, pressed and carefully lifted. That way I got only the flower part I wanted. I then colored each one in with my Prismacolor pencils and blened with baby oil. I popped each label die up on demensionals and adhered them to the square mat.

To finish it I added some ribbon and rounded the corners. I stamped the sentiment (from PTI) in Versamark Onyx Black and am really happy with how it turned out. The sentiment reads," This moment contains all moments. C.S Lewis"

Thanks for visiting and please leave a comment!
