Sunday Sketch

Finally - another sketch with embellishments!

This one calls for six brads or eyelets to frame a left hand border. Your main image or phrase will be in that border, and there's plenty of space left for other accents like die cuts or blocks of coordinating paper.

If you double mat the background, you'll get some added dimension and another spot of color. Coordinate everything for an eye-popping finished product.

The great thing about this sketch is that it can be as simple or as intricate as you'd like. Mix and match papers and images until you find something you really like.

For my card, I used blue card stock for the background panel, then added a vertical-striped piece of decorator paper with the same blue in it.

The border uses the green from the striped paper as the card stock background, then my hand-stamped phrase is matted on the light blue from the stripes.

I moved the bottom three brads (which could easily have been eyelets) up to more closely frame the Scripture. This left more room for the hand-cut dragonfly in the lower right hand corner.
