Sketch Challenge WSC#43

I do love joining in with Beate's sketch Challenge that she posts each weekend on her blog

This is this weeks sketch.............and here is my card.........

I was dying to use my new Paisley background stamp that arrived on Thursday! So decided the panel on the left of the sketch was a good place to use it. I had seen this colour combination in the UK Idea Book & Catalogue and wanted to try it out. They are not normally colours I would put together myself, but browsing this book gives you such great ideas. I actually like the two colours together and will be using them again I am sure. The left panel is stamped with More Mustard ink onto Whisper White card using the Paisley background stamp. (Love this stamp, I can see it is going to get used quite allot). I then tied Brocade Blue 5/8" grosgrain ribbon around the card. The sentiment is from the Circle of Friendship set of stamps and stamped with basic Black onto Brocade Blue card, punched out then layered onto More Mustard and Whisper White circles, then onto scalloped Brocade Blue. Another new item that came on Thursday was the Jumbo Eyelets and I decided to use one of them in the centre of the Sentiment. This is the first time I have used eyelets and I was amazed at how easy they are to use. The panel was then attached to the card with Dimensionals.

Thanks for looking. X.
