PCP Sketch Challenge

Today's Paper Craft Planet (PCP) Sketch Challenge is hosted by my friend Tammy Hershberger (Stamp Happy). The sketch is a wonderful classic layout that can be used in so many ways!
I chose to use some new designer paper from the DCWV Rustic stack and images from Penny Black (Enjoy Life). The paper used for matting is a mint metallic which I received from another friend, Sandy Egbert. It's a little thicker than usual, has a wonderful sheen to it and worked perfectly in the Cuttlebug along with my scallop oval Nestabilities. I used dimensional tape between the two scalloped mat panels behind my main image. After stamping my main image with versafine black onto very vanilla cs, I clear embossed and colored in with SU watercolor pencils & blender pen. Two different ribbons ... SU really rust grosgrain and Offry yellow satin were used and the sentiment was stamped with really rust ink, onto a very vanilla tag made with my EKSuccess tag punch. The little yellow brad is a sugar coated brad by Doodlebug and the Martha Stewart bird punch was used as an additional embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!! It's pretty raining here in N.E. Ohio ... that means a good day to stay indoors and craft.
