ISSC01- It's Time For Some FUN!!

Hey everyone, and welcome to the FIRST sketch with the SUPER fun new sketch challenge blog, iSpy Sketches!! Basically, the idea behind iSpy, is we look all over blog land, and various crafting galleries, and find fun, interesting sketches using other people's cards as our muse. This week, Loretta Lock has fallen under the magnifying glass, and I am in LOVE with her sketch!!

Pin It

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my sentiment from the SOON to be released, Clearly Sentimental About Romance set on Sweet Tooth. I then layered it with an Oval Dainty Doily Duo Die-namics cut out of Black Licorice. I paired it with the Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze paper pad, and Saffron, Grey, and Black Licorice cardstock. My flourishes were made with the Fancy Flourish Die-namics, and my flowers were made with the Scalloped Rolled Rose Die-namics. I used Black Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel, and some brads from Michael's. My border was made with the Monarch Border Die-namics.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from this gorgeous set!

Here are the Die-namics I have used:
