Swirlydoos & Once Upon A...Sketch
Swirlydoos has been the February Sponsor for Once Upon A...Sketch this entire month. We have a lovely prize up for grabs!!
Here is the current sketch
I started off putting things together to create a page and then I was struck with the need to make a card. LOL Has that ever happened to you? Since the theme for this week's sketch has to do with holidays/vacations and travel I decided to make a card that, for me, embodies the idea of traveling; time well spent, exciting places, and remembering every drop of every moment.
My card sentiment is all about remembering every drop of where you are at that moment. I used a Tattered Angels chipboard piece I had in my stash and misted it with Ranger's Blue Patina.
The sketch uses a clock. I love clocks. I know that I didn't have to use one, but I really wanted to and for the life of me couldn't find any in my stash (note to self LOL). Then I remembered something.....I have some Core'dinations paper that has a clock on it! BINGO!
I used my Silhouette to cut these cute file folders out and decided to use them as a way to open the card easier and let the tabs hang over the edge. I added that cute paper clip and a postage stamp transparency and called it a day. :)
Make sure to head on over to Once Upon A...Sketch and check out the bi-weekly sketch challenges. You won't be disappointed.
