JAI #70 - Sketch Challenge

This week at JAI it's a sketch challenge. 


To start with, I was a bit stumped as to what to do for this since I don't have the Scallop Circle die yet.  I was going to drag out my Circle Scissor Plus, (I did do that eventually anyway) but then I had another idea.

This is what I came up with


The doily I picked up from the party supply shop across the road from my work.  The rest came together quite quickly, suprisingly enough.  I have embossed the base using an old Cuttlebug embossing folder.  Because the card measures 5" x 5" I had to run it through twice.  There must be a trick to that which I am not aware of because I ended up with a bit of a line in it.  Luckily that doily was big enough to cover it up, lol!  The sentiment is from the L3 Hostess Set, Occassional Quotes and has been stamped in versamark and embossed with Silver Sparkle embossing powder that I have had in my stash forever!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Design Team have come up with.  There are some absolutely spectacular project for your viewing pleasure :)

Love the blingy look of your silver doily Jo. Great card.

Haha I don't know the embossing trick either because I always end up with lines where I don't want them too.
