A Sketch For You To Try #27...and a Giveaway!!

I just can't get enough of the Weather It Together stamp set by Reverse Confetti...I Love it!!  I have used it for the latest Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) at the Reverse Confetti Blog!  Here's my card and the sketch...

 I stamped, embossed and cut out the umbrella top, then colored with markers.  I then stamped the umbrella again on the dotted paper with versa mark and silver embossed.  I filled the handle in with a silver pen and used the black embossed bottom of the handle colored in with black, clear embossed, and cut out for the bottom of the handle...
I then used the little heart stamps from the set and again, with versamark, stamped and clear embossed the little hearts all over the card panel.  Instead of two separate panels, as in the sketch, I simply used some bamboo twine to make my separate panels:)!!.. The hearts are hard to see, but here's a couple close ups...just loved a little added interest on the card...

FUN!!  You have a few more days to be a part of the challenge, make sure to check out the details over at the Reverse Confetti Blog, and hope you'll be a part, cause there's a PRIZE for the winner of the challenge!!
 And last but definitely not least...I have so happily been given a Weather It Together stamp set to GIVE AWAY to one of my readers!!!  Simply leave a comment below, and I will randomly choose a winner on August 31st...now THAT'S REALLY FUN!!  

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  16. I thought your layer was cut in half, but it is black twine. Wow. I like that idea. Not because it isn't cut, but because of the wonderful added texture. Also, thanks for the generous giveaway.
