Friday Sketchers/Sarah Kay

Here's my take on Carole's fab sketch for Friday sketchers using 1 of my new Sarah Kay stamps. So have entered it for the new Sarah Kay challenge blog too.

Think this is my favourite Sarah Kay but I'll use another 1 and then think that is LOL! It's a folder card (using piece of A4 card, it takes minutes to turn into square folder which fits 6x6 envelope)

Just so you can see what I mean by folder card, here's the inside with pockets on both sides which I have put some stamped images in but it could be vouchers, money whetever really!
Materials:

  • Images: 'Rose's garden' Sarah kay stamp flourishes on edge of card are BG 'flourish corners' set (Stamping the edges with the flourishes was inspired by Camilla's fab creations with her grunge stamps which I don't have plus I thought it looked a bit bare without it). circle stamp is part of SU set
  • Papers: DCWV baby boy nursery stack
  • Colouring: yup, my promarkers again.
  • Others: flowers & brad from stash

Need some lunch now before I can face tackling the pile of candy entries from yesterday - didn't expect quite so many entries and being out of action for a day really does put a spanner in the works!

Have a good day, hope it runs smoothly!
