Today’s ATU challenge is a sketch! I used the sketch and the colors from this weeks Tuesday Trigger (check blog post below for image) to create my card. For my sample I used stamps from  last May Kit of the Month stamp set. I started by rounding the bottom corners of a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Solar White cardstock.

The background label was stamped three times on the lower bottom of the layer with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. A sentiment from the kit was stamped on the lower right hand side with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.

On the upper half of the layer I stamped the banner in black ink. The banner was stamped again on three different pattern of October Afternoon’s Fly A Kite paper and the banner pieces were paper pieced to the main layer. Caribbean Twine was adhered over the banner.

The layer was stitched to the card base, a 4″ x 10 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded as well. A button from Buttons Galore and More was threaded with Lemon Drop Twine and adhered over the sentiment to finish off the card.

I hope you have time to play! It’s a fun sketch. Check out the other challenge blog team members for more inspiration:

Have a great weekend!
