Card Sketch #80 - Imagine

Here's sketch #80! Measuring 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.

OK - this started off as the Gina K sketch challenge (see post below) and I forgot that I had to fold over the lower right hand corner! Well, after a few short four letter words, I stuck it in my stash and figured I'd use it later. Then I got my new TAC stamps and liked the swirl (ya, enough swirls already) and thought I'd get a little creative with them.

I stamped them in light pink chalk ink from Memories - I got the set of four cubes of pinks - love 'em! I did emboss the swirls with clear embossing powder - gave it a little more depth! The Imagine sentiment is stamped in a darker pink included in the set. I used the cube direct to paper to outline the layer.

Then I couldn't find a good match on ribbon in all my stash - getting a little frustrated at this point - So, I thought, let's see how well Copic's will color on this satin ribbon - looking good - a little stiff - let me work it a bit - ok, now to add some eyelets to thread it through! Whaa lah!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
