Card Sketch Tuesday #150

Happy Tuesday! Here is sketch #150! This one uses a chipboard piece as a frame!

Card base measures 4.25 x 5.5, inside panel 4 x 5.25.

I saved this outline of a flower from a chipboard piece a while ago, thinking it would be fun to use as a frame. A black Copic marker was used to color it - which worked great!

I used the same cream colored card stock to stamp some random flowers and a "hello" saying and cut it to go inside the flower frame.

The ribbon on the side is actually paper! I stamped it using the same color of my flower, cut it out and taped it on the back. Added a few ribbon flags at the top and secured them with black mini brads.

The cream background piece is run through the stylized flowers and swiss dots embossing folders. The mounted onto a black card base. This turned out simple but striking!

So, time to dig around in your chipboard and see if you have a piece that can be turned into a frame! Thanks for stopping by and have fun!

I like this card as it is very Laurie! I especially like the ribbon treatment, which I may have to borrow.
