InStyle Stamps Sketch #10: Baseball!

Hi All,

Thanks for joining me today - I am showing my project for the InStyle Stamps 10th Sketch Challenge!  Head on over to the ISS blog to see what the whole DT have created, and to submit your own creation to try to win some great stuff!  Here is the awesome sketch from Taylor:
Now, THAT is a fun sketch!

Here is what I came up with:

My card base is Whisper White, and I embossed the front with the mesh Cuttlebug folder.  I love embossing on white - it looks so crisp!  For the horizontal panel, I used a Creamy Caramel piece, embossed with the dots folder, and sponged around with Chocolate Chip ink.  I matted that onto a Basic Black layer, which was punched with my Martha Stewart fence edge punch.
At the bottom, I used a polka dotted piece of self-adhesive ribbon.  Then, I stamped a Kraftin' Kimmie sentiment onto Chocolate Chip CS in black ink, and punched it out with my Word Window punch.  I added a Creamy Caramel button with Linen Thread to the right of that.

For the main panel, the larger rectangle piece is Close to Cocoa CS, with the corners punched with the Ticket Corner punch.  I printed the adorable Alyssa onto PTI White CS, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out with Rectangle Nesties.  I added a larger Nestie black piece behind that, and both pieces were punched with the Ticket Corner Punch as well.

I hope you're able to play along with this sketch - Virginia always has great prizes to be won!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
