Its Tuesday sketch day at Skipping Stones Design.  We have one last sketch from the fabulous Kim Kesti.   Here it is.........
For my take I pretty much totally flipped the swirls on the side and used a die cut approach......this is what I made for this week....

I used the new set released this month,  Victorian Summer....

Beautiful set.....I used the butterfly and thank you sentiment.   Do you ever have a day where no matter what you try to put together doesn't flow?....that was me, today, with this card.  My creativity is lacking greatly....probablly because I am loking at a barely started stack of wedding favors to stamp and put together...150 x 2 different things.  Once they are done maybe my MoJo will resurface!

Have a wonderful day, and stop over at Skipping Stones to check out what the rest of the Stamp Tramps and guest designers have done with the sketch!   Happy Stamping!      Tammie

Happy Tuesday all, and welcome to my blog today.  It is once again Tuesday sketch challenge time for we Stamp Tramps from Skipping Stones Design.   We have another wonderful sketch from the super talented Kim Kesti!  This is her sketch this week.

This is my take on her sketch using the new SSD release "Victorian Summer".
I love the feathers in this set, so decided to use those instead of the square shapes.  I hilighted them with a white gel pen, and embossed them also....IRL they really stand out....very pretty and fun image to play with.

Hope you enjoy this weeks CAS card......don't forget to head on over to Skipping Stones Design Blog, and see what the other Stamp Tramps created, and upload your own take on this fun sketch.

Have a wonderful week!!                                                Tammie
