WSC52 Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge

I've come to some self realization through this blogging exercise. I'm slightly obsessed with Nestabilities and frames. Though this card does not contain a Nestabilities frame, it does have a frame with a flourish from the Frames with a Flourish Stamp Set and of course one side of a Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle. The largest Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle die was not quite large enough to mat the En Francais Background. Therefore, the flower was strategically placed to help cover the area where the Scalloped edge ended. I might have to look at getting some Long Rectangle Nestabilities.

I also really like the Fresh Cut Set. I decided to just use a portion of the background stamp from the set by using markers to color the flowers and leaves in the lower right hand corner and then punched it out with 1 3/8 inch square punch and adhered it to my frame. (It was trimmed slightly to fit better inside the frame.)

Stamps: Fresh Cuts, Frames with a Flourish, En Francais BG

Paper: Celery, Black, Pink Passion, White

Ink: Stazon Black, Celery, Old Olive, Pink Passion

Accessories: Nestablities, Piercing Tool, Flower, Brad, 1 3/8 Square Punch.
