Thinking of You - SC369

Hello bloggers! I am on a mission to stick with my plan to create and post a card for at least the SCS card sketch challenge every week. And I'm already 2 for 2!

I was excited when I saw this week's sketch challenge #369.  The diagonal and horizontal pieces offer so many options - ribbon, embossing, wire, pearls, distressing...WAIT! Why not hand-made distressed & embossed wired pearl-edged ribbon!

But I told my pal Gwen that I was doing a simple card this week, to which she snorted, Yeah, right.  Well, girlfriend, look who's snorting now! tee-hee-hee!

The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Mitten Weather collection. The colors and patterns are so versatile that you can use them for just about anything, not just winter or holiday projects! And that cute little guy from Inkadinkado's mini-set Thinking of You is colored with just a handful of Copics, not my usual 37! A trio of Kaiser pearls adds the finishing touch.

Pretty simple and straightforward, although I did go one step further by finishing the inside just a wee bit. I love receiving cards with an embellished inside - such an unexpected little surprise! - and I need to make the effort to do that more often!
Thanks for stopping by today. If you haven't already, you should give the SCS Card Sketches a try! Happy stamping!
