TST #133 Better late...

.....than never!

Yes folks things have been so crazy around here I just have had to put stamping on the back burner.  I had sent notification through that I would not be able to take part in this weeks sketch challenge for Try Stampin on Tuesday, and this morning I had literally 5 minutes to play so I did.
This is the great sketch that we had to work with this week.
This card used very little DSP.  I cut out a piece of DSP that was 1/8" smaller than the 4.25"x5.5" card base and then I cut a piece of the same card base that was 1/8" smaller again.  Using my DSP I cut out the centre section to 3"x3 3/4".  Once I had the centre section cut out using one of my swirls dies I die cut the centre of that.  I didn't leave anything out because the piece that I cut out I used on the inside as embellishment.

Then I added the two buttons with the twine running through them.

I hope you like what I have come up with.  Check out the other Great Designers over at Try Stampin on Tuesday and don't forget to give the sketch a try.

Since I was late entering my card for the Try Stampin reveal, I was able to search out and add it to a couple of other site challenges.  Cuttlebug Mania - die cuts and Die Cutting Divas - Just Because.

Next week starts a new venture for Try Stampin.  We will be have two sets of teams and each team will post on alternate weeks.  Each week to start there will be a blurb about one of the Designers on the Team, so make sure you check back and see who and what is happening.

Thanks for stopping by.
