Critter Sketch Challenge 19


This week's Critter Sketch challenge was a sketch. We were to create a pocket card. I did take a few liberties with my creation in terms of the actual sketch, but it follows the challenge in that my card is definitely a pocket card. I have to say that I enjoyed making this card. I used some two sided paper that I had purchased from QVC a few years ago. It's printed on one side and metallic on the other. I love the paper--I think I was saving it for a rainy day. Yep, we even had tornado warnings here in Chicago, so it was a perfect day to use the paper. I used a two-pocket card technique from Technique Junkies. The tags were created with my Spellbinders nestabilities labels die. All of the stamps are from Stampers Anonymous, Tim Holtz's line. The second stamp was cut from a paper embossed with the patchwork set embossing folder from Sizzix, also Tim Holtz line. The leaf ribbon on the tags was part of a gift bag of ribbon from Auntie Amy. I think the leaves make a cool tag pull.
