This is for today's sketch created by Korin. Personally, I couldn't have asked for an easier sketch, READ ON...
Did you catch my card title??? Let me explain; the reason it took me soooooooo long to make this card is I have a pinched nerve under my left collar bone. May I just say...OMGoodness very PAINFUL. Lifting a piece of paper today was painful and I'm sure the doc would have preferred I listen to him when he said, "take it easy" BUT, what about the Wednesday sketch!! LOL
Of course, me, who normally goes for the cas style just couldn't stop adding layers today...so, between the pinched nerve and the extra layers I managed to make this sketch difficult and time consuming, hence the title of my card!! YES, it really did take two hours to make this.
Details: SU's On The Grow, watercolored, paper pierced and layered and layered with Basic Black and Marina Mist. On the smaller panel I used a houndstooth dsp scrap mounted on black, punched holes on the left and wound my taffeta ribbon through and oh yes, let's not forget my little scrunched ribbon flower, from a few weeks back, with a vintage brad. Added the scalloped border for some additional texture. Added more layers~~
newsprint dp, another layer of basic black mounted on very vanilla. I ran those three layers through the big shot using SU's Square Lattice but you can't really see it in my photo. Phew...I'm exhausted!!
Hope you enjoy my card, TFL and have a great Wednesday!

Wow this is a lovely card! I love the way you did the ribbon, it looks fantastic and the colors are perfect! I am still quite a newbie and I can not wrap my brain around how you got your piercing so perfect??? I need to try to figure this out, you have made it look so great! I need to learn how to do this!
Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you are feeling better soon.

Sorry to hear about your pinched nerve. Hope you have some drugs for the pain. Your card is awesome. Love the colors and your embellishment. I had to smile about your comment about having to do the challenge. It's called "addiction". tfs
