SIP Challenge #55 - Sketch Challenge!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope your week is fabulous!  I enjoyed a really nice long and relaxing weekend with my Hubby.  Sometimes it's nice to just do a lot of nothing!  lol  We did grill out and watch some Cardinals baseball!  Jeff and I usually go to a Cardinals game or two each year but last year came and went without a trip to St. Louis at all.  We did manage to make a Spring Training game in Florida over the summer though!  

So since it is Tuesday, I'm back over at Stamp, Ink, Paper with my take on a fun sketch!


Here is my card.. of course I had to skew it just a bit.. lol

I started with an 11" x 4 1/4" piece of Basic Black Cardstock that was scored at 5 1/2".  I added a strip of retired floral DSP that measured 5 1/2" x 3 1/4".  I ran a piece of Black Stitched Satin ribbon across the front and knotted it on the left side.  I cut two MFT Stitched Rounded Rectangles Stax.. The larger in Old Olive and the smaller in Calypso Coral.  I also cut out the Medium Jar shape out of the Calypso Coral layer with my new Everyday Jars Framelits Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from the Jars of Love Stamp Set onto the front of a piece of Acetate with Jet Black Stazon Ink.  The jar image was stamped on Whisper White Cardstock.  I used the new Foam Adhesive Strips to adhere the Acetate to the back of the Calypso Coral layer.  I added some light pink and clear heart confetti to the inside of the shaker jar.  I then used the heart strip that comes with the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies to cut a strip of Old Olive and Calypso Coral hearts to add to the front jar and card.  I think it turned out really cute.  I was super excited to get this bundle yesterday so yes, of course, I had to use it!  I have a pretty extensive list of "must haves" from the new Stampin' Up! Catalog!  lol  

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings, Tina
