A Sketch Explosion!!

So I think I'm becoming a sketch girl!! Since starting to do a few sketch cards last week, I think I'm addicted. It's been so much fun creating for a sketch and checking out what others have done with the very same sketch. The creativity out there is amazing!

This is for Kazan's sketch #14 on 2 Sketches 4 You. It was such a fun sketch to create with. And once I started creating with this October Afternoon paper, I couldn't' seem to stop!!

Flowers: Brown-The Paper Studio, Glitter-K&Co., 3D-Sandylion Sticker Design
Embossing folder: Cuttlebug
Textured paper: The Paper Co.
Ribbon: Martha Stewart-brown, Offray-cream
Chrystal Flourish-: Prima Marketing
So I had all of this lovely paper bits lying around on my table and just kept on going...
Flowers: Red-Making Memories, Cream-Prima Marketing.
Gem: K&Co.
Rub on sentiment: Die Cuts with a View
Flourish die cut: Sizzix
Corrugated paper and leather paper have been in my stash for years.
For this card, all the supplies are the same except the rub on is from Crate Paper, and brad is from Making Memories.

And finally this one came together. The funny thing is that I'm not a huge fan of red or using such bold paper in making my cards. But this combination just seemed right and I love how they all turned out. And it all started with a sketch!
Thanks for stopping by.
