Tuesday Morning Sketches #340

Good Morning!  Thank you for stopping by.  The sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a lovely one inspired by Jessi.  Why do I say inspired?  Because Jessi creates cards and then sends them to me to "sketch-ify."  I love this one, it's definitely the sketch to use again and again.

My card features one of my favorite images from this week's sponsor, Digital Delights by Louby Loo.  This is Jubbly Giraffe and is sooo adorable!  It is absolutely perfect for a baby card.

My card features paper I've had for very long time by Basic Grey.  I tried a tip by Julie Ebersole to run a thin line of Stickles around the image.  I embossed the sentiment with gold on vellum and then hand-stitched the vellum to the pink strip.  The sentiment is from MFT Stamps.  I finished it with a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and Craft Medley.

Please join us over at TMS and be sure to visit my team's blogs - they work hard to inspire you week after week.  They deserve a little love.

That giraffe is too cute! Fantastic work on this. I need to try your Stickles technique also, or they will never get emptied!

Hi Melissa,

I think the giraffe is the best of all - and how wonderful to find the DP to match for a background. I think your sequins are so sweet and the sentiment sums it up. This is definately a GIRLY card!

Debbie said...

This is ADORABLE!!! Your giraffe is so cute and I love the papers and how puffy the embossed sentiment is!

Adorable baby card Melissa! Love the sweet image and the stitching looks great! The sequins and glitter add just the right amount of sparkle! I love my Misti! They are a little salty, I purchased mine over a year ago when they were running a special. It's great for re-stamping when you don't get a good impression the first time.
