Summer layout and card

  It is my day over at the Scrap-Mart blog and this is the sketch challenge for this week.  It was a toughie for me and took me quite awhile to complete.
 
I used a mixed medley of papers and I think that is why it was so hard.  I usually just stick with kits and go from there.  I have some Sassafrass, Jillibean and Cosmo Cricket paper, along with several different Unity stamps and of course some American Crafts thickers.  I cut the circle with my Slice (Basics 1).  All of these can be purchased at Scrap-Mart for great prices, be sure to check them out!  For my layout I incorporated the Design Dollies challenge - a sun and the color yellow.
  



Now for my Get Sketchy card.  This is officially my last card as a DT member, however I was asked to stay on as an Alumni!  Means I can play when I want... which will be most of the time, the team and sketches rock!

We are sponsored by Daisy Bucket and had these great card bases to work with.  What a fun and easy way to make a 'different' fold of card.  Be sure to see what other fun cards the rest of the DT came up with.  Our challenge to you this week is a shaped card, can't wait to see what you do.

I used the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger as inspiration for some colors:



I used My Mind's Eye Breaking Free Paper,  the Unity June KOTM  and some Pink Paislee letter stickers.  This fits the CARDS challenge as well, eyelets.



Now to see the rest of the Friends with Flair participants start at Angela's blog.  Don't forget to look for the hidden blinkie, you could win a bunch of free stamps.
