Getting sketchy with TSG

Hooray, it's release week for There She Goes! All week long the Trendsetters will have sneak peeks of the soon to be released stamp sets and you will have the chance to win new goodies as well :) Are you signed up for the TSG Newsletter yet? If not, head on over to the TSG website and enter your email address in the box located on the lower right hand side so that you will be sure to receive the newsletter when it goes  out later today!

This week's festivities starts out with this fun sketch. It's a nice and simple layout that is perfect for so many different options :)

I decided to make another frame project using the provided sketch but ended up tweaking it just a bit in the creating process. My image panel is a bit wider and the ribbon goes behind it instead of in front but otherwise I pretty much stuck to it ;) I used an older mini set that happens to be one of my favorites called Angel Mail. It was released last year around the time that our oldest daughter Kylie was diagnosed with JDM and the sentiments really mean a lot to me. (You can read Kylie's story here)

Angel wings were stamped multiple times onto white cardstock using Momento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Prismacolor pencils, cut out, layered using dimensionals and adhere to the card base. I used my new favorite seam binding that you can find right here at Ribbon Carousel.
