2s4y Sketch #63: Sketch by Kazan

So, I am finally back and unpacked from my Stamping Away weekend.  I had such great
company this past weekend.  Laurie and Jen are just the best stamping friends.......they
each gave me support in my cardmaking and made honest suggestions for changes.
We each did a Limited Supply Challenge card. 
So be watching for the post next week showcasing these cards.....kinda a mini blog hop!

Ok, today's card uses the great sketch by Kazan at 2S4Y.  I decided to turn the sketch on its side and
use some pattern paper on the one side (to resemble the "lines" on the sketch).

I found this awesome Christmas paper line Tinsel and Twig by the girls' paperie at my LSS
yesterday.  I knew I had to cut into this and use it for this sketch!  No more hoarding paper!
My stamped image is from the PTI anniversary set, Round and Round.  I used my
Versamark marker to apply ink to just the berry and leaf image and stamped on my label. 
Then I gently rubbed chalk over my image....voila!

I also changed the sketch up a bit by using my Nestabilities Labels 4 because Laurie and I
had placed an order with WMS for Very Vintage Labels No.4 frames and I wanted to use them here.
Let me tell you......These frames are INCREDIBLY easy to line up!!

Have a wonderful's gorgeous weather here in Kansas!
