Latisha's Sunday Sketch #2

Latisha created a new Sunday Sketch, and I created a card with it right away. This is my card for her Sunday Sketch #2. Check out her sketch, and give it a try!


I used an awesome image that I just received from Chris. I used colored pencils and gamsol on the image. I cut the oval and the mat with my Coluzzle. The striped pattern paper is My Mind's Eye. I created a ribbon slide for my twill ribbon. I stamped "relax" using some $1 Michael's acrylic stamps. I matted the sentiment, and then I cut the ribbon slots using a Making Memories slot tool. I love the twill. I distressed everything with chalk ink. So, what do you think?

My girls have summer band this morning, and then we NEED to run to WalMart. We have lots of miscellaneous items that we're running out of. That's not good, because that means we'll be spending way too much money. It's horrible how expensive everything is right now. It's not just the gas prices.

I hope you have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Ain't that the truth about all the prices being insanely high! Ugh, I'm already dreading school shopping! But it's right around the corner already... Great card, I love the ribbon slide... I have alot of precuts like this and I wasn't sure how they would look.. I like this though! :)

What a soft & pretty card! I love the ovals. I keep meaning to do a card with ovals and forgetting. Thanks for the reminder. :0)
