365 Cards - #204 - Super Sketchy Sunday

It is the end of another week over at 365 Cards which means it is Super Sketchy Sunday. This is the sketch we were to follow.

This is my interpretation of that sketch. I do not have any oval shaped cutters or oval Nesties so I had to cut them freehand which is why they are not quite oval but hey another one of those imperfections we talked about earlier lololol. I am going to list the supplies as I go because I am so tired after getting up at the crack of dawn today to go to the markets that I need to go to bed. I was going to go before I made my card but I felt guilty so I stayed up hehehe. Of course I used SU Kraft base with a Riding Hood Red piece next then the ovals are from SU Bella Rose designer paper kit which is probably my fav. On top of that we have SU Whisper White and I used Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black and Riding Hood Red stamp pads with the edges distressed with Ranger distress inks. The large polka dotted flower is from Bella.

The ribbon is from SU as is the stamp set Great Friends. Martha Stewart butterfly punch and SU Tab punch. I also used the Swiss Dot embossing folder and the SU Signo white gel pen which is becoming a big fav of mine. That's it.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

You did a great job of cutting! I can't cut on a line to save my soul! Love the tab with the sentiment. Great take on the sketch!

Michelle, you rocked this challenge and you can't even tell this is a handcut oval. Now if I would have handcut it you would be lyao.

Wowzers Michelle! If I had tried to cut that by hand, it would have looked like a mutant triangle or something! Lol - great card - love that you used leaves for the edging! Great job!

Great stamp, great colors. Perfect card! And when you hand cut...ink and sandpaper are your friends. LOL I stink at hand cutting so I own every type of cutting system known to man.
