A {Presto Chango} Sketch For You To Try

Anything on this card look familiar to you? If you immediately thought, hey, that's Susie's little ATC from yesterday, you are right!! Ding ding ding!! You're the winner! Go eat a cookie. Yep, yesterday, I still needed to make a card for today for Jen's Sketch For You To Try (as I do every Saturday!), and when I saw the sketch, I knew the ATC would be a perfect match for it, plus, I knew I wanted to turn it into a card eventually. So, presto, chango, my little ATC is now a full-grown card (they grow up so fast!). The details on this card are pretty straightforward. It's been a long week and I'm going to take it easy today (after the laundry, a birthday party and some shopping), so I will leave you to gaze at the eye candy of this card and all my other (simply the best) friends---Amy S., Amy R., Carole, and Shannan--be sure and see what Jessie created on Jen's blog, too (that's where the sketch is as well, just fyi..). Play along with us and upload to SCS using keyword SFYTT! I hope to see ya'll soon around these parts as I have a lot of cards to catch you up on!

TIP: Make little tabs with the word window punch and fold them over a layer instead of just cutting them off at the edge. It makes for a neater look overall.

Stamps: Petals and Stems, Feeling Groovy (Verve Visual)
Paper: Soft Sky, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip (SU!), Papertrey White, Figgy Pudding (Basic Grey), Cashmere Sweater (Key Lime Pie--unknown maker)
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery (SU!)
Accessories: Polkadot Grosgrain Ribbon, Dimensionals, Sponge, Frosted Flatback Baubles (Stamping Bella), Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars), Cutter Bees, Glue Dot

(I love that I just had to copy and paste the details here from my last post. Only I added the green polka DP, although I no longer have the mfg. info.! teehee!)
