There were a few gremlins in the works when I originally typed up this post last night, basically all my text after "Morning everyone!" disappeared and I had to start again. Grrrr...
But hopefully we can move onto the main topic of today's post on the second attempt! Our prompt for week 36 comes in the form of this great sketch from Retro Sketches that popped up on my Pinterest feed this week - I think I'll have to keep an eye out for more lovely sketches from Retro Sketches!
I wanted to stick really close to the sketch layout for my card this week as I was really taken with the aperture in the banner layer and just wanted to replicate the whole thing:
Paper: Crate Paper, Shimelle
Dies: MFT, Spellbinders, Paper Smooches
Layered stickers: Crate Paper
Enamel dots: MME
Other: Stickles, 3D foam
So I really went to town with those papers and layered stickers from Crate Paper's Oh Darling line, in fact there are no less than 2 layered stickers on there, plus extra glitter for the bow as I couldn't resist getting the Platinum Stickles out. A great blend of gold and silver. :D
Also the top layer called for a good neutral design - plain white/cream card was too plain and boring and any other pattern would have been too fussy, but this cream grid paper which is a B-side from Shimelle's new collection for American Crafts really hit the spot! :)
I'll be back later this week to share my festive number, I look forward to seeing the interpretations for this week's sketch!
