It's Your (Fri)Day!

Last Friday, Jen's Sketch for You to Try was a great one, along with a chance to win a mystery goodie bag. I was intrigued enough by the sketch to play along, but the goodies made it even more irresistable!

Stamps: Verve Party Time
Paper: Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, White, Delicate Dots DSP
Ink: Regal Rose, Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron
Accessories: Buttons (Burgundy & Saffron), Dimensionals, Nestabilities
Technique: Paper Tole

Here's a little more detail showing the popped up balloons (rose one once, striped one twice). I love this darn paper tole technique from Dawn's challenge that I took during the TE Birthday Bash a while back.

Thank goodness it's Friday - I'm about done with this week. I need some time to relax and do some crafting! The gym time sure is eating into that. I really do have to start reading my books for school, too, or I'll get behind really quickly when it starts in November.

Head over to Scrap n Stamp today & check out my card for the sketch challenge.

Have a fabulous day! =)

Great the nestabilities :) I just got some maple leaf ones :) Hmmm, I really wanted to do Jen's sketch this week too...I'll see how it goes after work, maybe I can sneak it in before the deadline :) Have a great weekend...I'm spending it in the studio!!
