Good morning! I've been up since last night when the challenge came out, but I have been working on my Easter cards for my pen pals again. I was in the middle of a card, so I put the sketch on hold for a bit. Until now.
Here is my story:
I can't believe I completed the sketch challenge in one night though, that's pretty amazing. I had an idea already set in my mind, so it made it easier to deal with. I made this card for my son Dallas who turns 12 on Friday. You know that is Friday the 13th? Anyways, he is a HUGE Dallas Cowboy's fan and even though this isn't Cowboy dp, I decided to make it look like it was. He'd still like it. We are driving to Texas (which is only about 3 hours) this weekend to shop for Dallas Cowboy bedroom stuff...like the comfortable, etc.
I started out with the metallic silver star dp and cut to size. Do you see it shine? I cut all the silver as well. The silver is actually poster board I had laying around. Once the silver c/s was mounted, I then used the piercing tool on all the edges. Mounted onto the blue c/s. I cut a piece of white c/s and used the navy blue colored marker with a stencil to add the number 12. I had wrote his name above the number. Mounted, pierced, and attached to card. I cut out a star, added a brad, and secured it on with blue c/s. I had to cut out another star for the blue. I stamped the sentiment with blue ink, mounted, and attached. This was fun to make and really easy. It did take me some time to get the right point for the half diamond layer, but I figured it out.
Thanks Roxy for the challenge and thanks for looking.
Have a great day!
My son told me today, that he's at the age limit where he is no longer a kid when it comes to kids meals. It'll be half orders on the adult menus when we eat out.
What do you think?
I'm going to go to bed for one hour. I am cold and tired. It's 5am.
