I finally had an opportunity to participate in the sketch challenge over at Card Patterns. For those of you who don't know, this is a great new card sketch site. I love their sketches and it's so easy to participate!
The current sketch (#6) is encouraging the use of layers. Since I LOVE layering paper/embellishements, this was right up my alley. I made this Easter card using my scraps and some "old" tools I was happy to use again. The eggs were made using a sizzix die cut. I first used corregated cardboard (trash of course, lol) which my Big Shot cut with ease. I covered the cardboard with various scraps of patterned paper and added a ribbon stripe to one of them.
I used my "ole faithful" EK Success tag punch and my new McGill scallop circle punch along with some additional scraps of patterned paper to apply the layering effect.
I finished it off with some awesome glittery ribbon to complete the sketch.
Mozy on over to Card Patterns and give their sketches a try:)
