Sweet Sunday Sketch - Scrappy Style

This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch was just what I needed. Last night, after several loads of laundry, and a sink full of dinner dishes....I had an itch to get a little crafty, and yet I also wanted to watch a movie. (Well, okay *listen* to a movie....) In particular, I was feeling in a scrappy mood, instead of my usual desire for lots of coloring.

So, while I listened in on my movie, I dug through my newly cleaned paper stash, leafed through my newly organized stamp collection and pulled out some of my favorite pieces. (Yeah for cleaning up!!)

My husband is a HUGE Beatles fan, and I'm so excited to leave this card out for him! The sentiment is from MFT's Clearly Sentimental About You. Now that my desktop is all neat and tidy, I reached for my embossing powder and heat gun and gave the sentiment a nice pop!

The sketch calls for a three embellie cluster, but I've subbed in a chipboard heart, button and a twined bow. Then, just lookie what I found in my cleanup, I wee bit more of my favorite ruffled gingham ribbon. (Seriously, is it wrong to love ribbon so much?)

Be sure to head on over to Karen's blog to check out this week's sketch, after all she randomly shares one submission on her blog each week. Will it be yours?

Love your card...where I buy that ruffled ribbon?

Tracy said...

Gorgeous card Joanne. Is this ribbon by May Arts?

Chris said...

ACK!!!!! I've been coveting that ribbon forever. I've done several searches with google, bing and yahoo and visited tons of sites looking for it to no avail. I'm actually thinking taking some ribbon to my sewing machine and gathering it myself. Stranger things have happened.
