Artful Delight Friday - August Sketch Card


Happy Friday!

This is my take on this month's card sketch.

Pretty clean and simple.  I love that blue woodgrain paper and really wanted to highlight it.  For the border strip elements, I layered a strip of chevron paper over the filmstrip washi, so just the edge of it was visible.  Then I used some of the black and white twine I had left from last month's kit (seriously, the kits are packed and I still have a bunch of that twine) threaded through one of the Fancy Pants chipboard stars.

One of the Pebbles chalkboard stickers was the perfect sentiment.

Don't forget that one random participant in our sketch challenges will win their choice of August kit.  Hope you can play along!


Have a great end to your week.  Come back tomorrow, I'm participating in a special hop!

Supplies Used:  Artful Delight August Card Kit; Twine from Artful Delight July Card Kit; CTMH - Dimensional Foam Tape; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
