STAMPlorations sketch #12

Sharing a card with you for the latest sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations which was actually a submission call reject which just happens to fit the bill for sketch #12.  Love it when that happens ;)

Presenting the sketch...

And my shimmery, glimmery card...

The submission call category was Art Deco.  I used some other stamps for the peacock feathers and glam BG (stamped with Perfect Medium and then covered with Perfect Pearls like here), but the font of the sentiments in VIGNETTE: Art Deco Border Builders is the perfect font for Art Deco style creations, don't you agree?

I heat embossed the sentiment in gold onto some tiny black die cuts and attached them as well as one cut from turquoise shimmer CS with a brad and some twirly metallic thread wisps. Kinda see the sketch if you mirror image it?

Check out what our guest designer, Debbie created, as well as the STAMPlorations DT.  Show us what you've come up with.  As always, there are prizes up for grabs!  Sketch Challenge #12 ends on May 30.

Appreciate your visit.
