Sketch-On-Saturday; SOS20 card

Hi all
So crafting time has been a little thin on the ground this week – sad, but true.
Fun stuff that I have been doing though includes:
another zumba class…
fruit picking (yummy apples and plums – all on an impulsive whim, after zumba night. I was walking home with a pal and we decided to go for it and fill our bags before the goodness all gets snaffled by some other fruit-picking passers-by!)….
tidying up and purging of the craft zone (phew – that feels good! This week I will be sharing pics of some the fruits of this labour…)

But back to the crafting schedule, that is what you stopped by for, right?
A new sketch for today!

Sketch-On-Saturday idea SOS20
And I was inspired by the latest colour palette over at CR84FN #35:
CR84FN 35 challenge

Here’s my card:
Sketch-On-Saturday idea SOS20 card Waltzing Mouse StampsI pulled this one together with some scraps – that had been trying to overtake my crafty zone. Hence the clear-up is a work-in-progress ;)
The scraps of patterned paper are by DCWV and My Mind’s Eye, and the border strip at the bottom is some scrunched vellum layered with a Jiilibean Soap border.

I stamped and heat embossed the label from Waltzing Mouse Stamps ‘Rescue Remedies’, dabbing off a little of the ink first to help with the antiquing look. It didn’t work quite as well as hoped except for the ‘Pow..’ of ‘Powders’  ;)
Will need to experiment with this a bit more methinks.
It’s die-cut with coordinating  Nesties ‘Labels 4′.

The grey touch in the colour inspiration is a nice neutral and with the soft pearlescent vellum, grey-toned paper band and silver butterfly embellishment I think it works.

Have a good day folks, thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Rx
