Today, I just managed to get this one in with a few hours to spare. I thought I would miss it! For some peculiar reason, although I loved the sketch as soon as I saw it, everything I tried . . . I wasn't happy with . . . don't you just hate that when it happens?
I was about to give up on it, but thought that I'd have one last go and I came up with this one. I still wasn't over the moon, but I wasn't as disappointed as the other four attempts! So, I decided to use it for the challenge, 'CAS(E) This Sketch #100' Anyway, this is what I came up with
And this was the sketch
First I designed the border paper in my graphic program and printed it out on my printer. Then I got a plain white card front and ran it through my Cuttlebug with an embossing plate and a frame die - all supplies will be listed below - then, I stuck the border paper to the bottom of my card (in retrospect I should have stuck the border paper down after embossing the card front and then run it through the frames die, that way the edge detail would have continued around on the border paper, but I didn't think of it at the time, but that's what I'd do if I made it again, unlikely after all the trouble I had!)
Finally, I stuck the whole thing to a plain white card base and embellished with a few sparkling sequins!
Embossing Plate - Papertrey Ink (expensive to get shipped to UK, but I had to have it)
Frames Die - Avery Elle, 'Finished Frames'
Stamp - Clearly Besotted, 'Happy Days'
Paper - Designed by me and printed on my printer
Embellishments - Mixed sequins by Simon Says Stamp
