Sketch Support (Card Week)

This week is the premiere of Sketch Support and we are starting things off with a card sketch. Today one of my cards is featured along with one from fellow Creative Team Members Katrina Hunt and Melissa Elsner

As most of you know, I'm not a card person so this was a bit of a challenge for me.  I honestly made several cards before narrowing it down to just two to submit.  Here is the first card I came up with.

Supply list - Patterned cardstock: KI Memories; Jewels: The Paper Studio; Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Ink (Chestnut Roan); Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; Floss: DMC

Variation #1 - I used four smaller circles on my card instead of the three larger circles on the sketch.

Variation #2 - Since I had little Valentine messages on each circle I didn't add the message as suggested on the sketch.

Variation #3 - I used a mix of jewels and hearts for the smaller circles on the sketch. I also added some detail to the card with hand-stitching around two of the circles.

Variation #4 - Instead of a solid background I used two coordinating patterned papers.
Please visit Sketch Support to see what else the Creative Team Members have created and to get your own copy of the sketch.

    Thank you Allison! That was so sweet! I'm really hoping to learn a little more from the experienced ladies.

    Thanks Jen! I might just have to send it to you. LOL!

    Thank you Shari! I'm so glad I took a detailed picture because the original photo just didn't do the card any justice. The paper is so pretty in person!
