TST #101

It's Tuesday again.  Time for another sketch from Try Stampin on Tuesday.
I bought some really great DSP from My Mind's Eye called Lost & Found.  I loved this paper so much I hated to cut into it, but then again if you don't use it it just isn't worth buying.  So here is what I came up with from one of the sheets.
Instead of going with the smaller piece of paper under the rectangle I decided to use the piece that looked like what I thought was a racetrack.  Hmmm, racetrack!  I don't have a car but I did have a bike so that is what I decided on for my image.
Then rather than put a bow on the front, which I now thought looked like a masculine card I decided to use 1/8" ribbon and put a simple embellishment of ribbon with a small brad.  The brad was then mimicked at the side of the card as well.

I hope that you like what I have come up with.  Now it's your turn.  Not too sure what to do yourself for this sketch, then hop on over to the Try Stampin site and see what the other Great Designers have in store for you.

Thanks for dropping by.


Your comments mean a lot to me so don't forget to leave one.
