sketch saturday #57

Hi everybody, it's saturday so it's time for another sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday.

This is this weeks sketch...

I bought some post-it-note pads the other day and decided to make a small note pad cover for one of them. Here it is, and it measures just 8cm x 8cm...

The outer card is 'old olive' by Stampin Up
The pretty patterned paper (infact it's cardstock) is from Chatterbox's 'chateau' collection and is my all time favourite cardstock, I love it, and have used it a lot in the past, it is double sided, the stripey side and the tapestry effect side.
The telephone is hand drawn (as you can obviously tell by my poor drawing!)
The 'dial' on the phone is raised slightly from the image using foam adhesive although you can't see this very well in the photo.
The sentiment is hand written, and the ribbon is from my stash, the little flower was punched out from the same chatterbox cardstock, then I added a small flat backed pearl to the centre of the flower.

Enjoy your weekend!

Hello Everyone, it's Saturday so it's time for another sketch :)

This week over at Sketch Saturday we have another awesome prize for our winner...
$25.00 worth of craft goodies from Simon Says Stamp!

We also have a new guest designer, Leonie, who will be with us for 2 weeks, we are very honoured to have Leonie join our team, her work is so beautiful, she is one very talented crafter!

Here is my card this week, sorry about the photo, could have been better.

Yes, i've used the same image as my last card, it's from Stampin Up! and the set is called 'Summer by the sea'
The fish images were stamped using a long forgotten stamp set that I found, See D's Boys Toys.
The images were coloured with watercolours,
all papers and embellies are from my 'scraps' drawer, so it proves that scraps can be useful!
The word 'Grandad' was printed from the computer.

Please join in and be in with a chance of winning the fabulous prize on offer this week, and don't forget to visit my fellow DT members blogs too, their cards are always stunning!

Enjoy your weekend everyone! xx

and here is my card...

I've used Stampin Up! cardstock, designer paper & clear buttons, adding ribbon and paper to the underside of each button to blend in with the colour scheme.
The image is also by Stampin Up!, it's from the 'Summer by the sea' stamp set, and has been coloured with watercolour pencils.
Added thin black ribbon, 3 eyelets and the handwritten 'Dad' piece to complete the card.
TFL, have a great weekend! xx
