Sketch challenge #SC229


Here is my submission for this week's sketch challenge over at splitcoast. I went out of my comfort zone and ordered some basic grey paper and brads.. why is that out of my comfort zone you ask? Well, I admit, I am a bit of a paper snob and have only used Stampin Up up to this point... So I added to the challenge by using the basic grey "granola" paper. And what a suprise, large curvy rectangle nesties! I used the kraft striped paper from the textiles collection for my card base, two sheets from the basic grey granola papers, and kraft for my season of friendship (su) tree that is stamped in chocolate chip. The sentiment is stamped on the same paper as the card base, also in chocolate chip. The flowers are from SU flower fusion and the brads are basic grey granola. I sponged the edges of the components with chocolate chip as well. At least I have gotten my dollar's worth out of these nesties! The good news is my new dahila nesties came today, so I will try those next! Thanks Cassie for the great inspirations! And thanks for looking!

YES, I knew I could corrupt you further if I just tried a little harder, muhuahaha! No, this is awesome and way to go for stepping out of your comfort zone. I have my moments where it seems a little tough, but the end result always surprises me. Love this paper. . .I may have to get it too ;D

This is a really nice card. I love how you used the lable nesties in the layers. I also seem to stick with SU cardstock and paper. Sometime I will have to try some of the Basic Grey brand. I can't wait to see how you use the dahlia nesties. They have been on my wish list for a while.
