Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #40

*This is my first post for today. I hope you'll join me for a new Waltzingmouse sketch, as well as the first day of previews for The Craft's Meow, at 3AM EST. I also have a fun GD post at 5AM, and a December SFYTT sample card at 8AM.*

This week's sketch is a slightly altered revisit of one of my very early sketches (#3). It's a beautiful, versatile and simple layout, that never grows out of fashion. I fancied it up a bit, by adding the scalloped strip at the bottom, I think it looks cool... I hope you'll have fun with this one!

I used one of my all-time favourite colour combos, on my sample card. Aqua and deep red. Mmmmm!
I love it on Christmas cards, but I think it's super cute for Valentine cards as well. Heck, it's good for everything.


Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Aqua Mist), Canson (red), recycled kraft, white; stamps: WPlus9 (Love Birds), Stampendous (Silhouette Sprig); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black, Rhubarb Stalk), Versa Magic (Gingerbread, Turquoise Gem, Sea Breeze); border punch: Fiskars; sewing machine

I'm submitting this card into CFC30, with this fun bingo. I picked diagonally: scallops, kraft & aqua.


A few things to keep in mind if you decide to use my sketch:
- You're kindly asked to save the image onto your computer first, and if you make a card based on it, please link back to this post.
- If you upload your card to an online gallery, please use the code SSC40.
- Please share the link to your creation via the Inlinkz widget, so that I can come and check it out. I would love to see what you did with it!
- The colours/elements mean nothing towards the card. All styles, colours and supplies, as well as slight alterations of the sketch are welcome.
- A new sketch and sample is posted every Saturday, but you're welcome to play any time! Just leave a link in the comments section after Inlinkz widget closes.
