Young Crafters Unite card

Hi everyone!

It's finally Friday! I'm so looking forward to the weekend...not sure why--but maybe I just want a bit of a break from the normal routine...

All my "men" went to bed early so I got to play awhile. I chose the challenge at Young Crafters Unite to inspire my latest card. I love sketches and I knew this one would be fun to play with.

Here's the sketch:

Here's my card:

I usually try to switch up the sketch a bit but I loved this one! I love simple and clean lines and so I left the sketch in its original form. All the papers are from My Mind's Eye Stella Rose. The stamp--which is one of my latest purchases and I LOVE--is from Technique Tuesday and it's called Life is good. LOVE it! I heat embossed the image and then used mustard seed and spiced marmalade distress inks to color in the image. Of all the stamping techniques, I think this is my favorite! The final touch was just adding some twine to a button and the card was done. :)

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
