Repeat Impressions Sketch #F2013

Its What If? Wednesday at Repeat Impressions.  I know I say this every time but they have another awesome sketch for us this week.  I love sketches like this.  Its a perfect way to create a classy CAS card.  It almost creates itself.


Here's my take on this sketch.  I wanted to keep this card very simple and elegant.  I stamped this lovely RI verse - Beautiful Day - 9206, then I used this Sizzix embossing folder above the verse.  I flipped the card stock and embossed it again below the verse.  Embossing in this way gave my focal point that elegant, simple, classy look I was going for.   Beyond that, I basically followed the sketch to every detail.  Like I said, this sketch basically creates itself.

Here's a close up....

Here are the amazing cards from the rest of the RI Rock Stars.  Aren't they all lovely?  Try it for yourself.  Create a card using this lovely sketch, link it on the RI blog and you will be entered in a drawing for a chance to win an amazing prize - $25 gift certificate to the RI store.  Go here to see the full rules.

Don't forget, there also is last weeks DCC challenge - using your favorite stamp - hopefully your favorite is an RI image, but if not, that's okay too.  Feel free to play along.  You still have another week to participate.  Go here to see the full rules.

Please note:  I am entering this card in the following challenges:

As always, I hope that I've stayed within the rules of the challenge.
