Home Sweet Home!!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday and Happy Columbus Day! I LOVE a day off from work!!

Here is my card for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG24, which is a Sketch Challenge by little old me!!! Woo Hoo! I would LOVE it you played along!!!

I created this sketch to accomodate a larger image, like my beloved fireplace from the Home Sweet Home Set (which is back in stock at There She Goes!!!).

For my card, I started by stamping the fireplace in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock, and I then stamped it again onto some yummy Cosmo Cricket Lil' Man paper! I then cut out the patterned paper and created some wall paper for my fireplace. I drew in some white baseboard moulding and colored all the images with Copic Markers.

I used two strips of Mr. Campy dp from Cosmo Cricket for my two other panels (#2 and #3 on the sketch), and of course, added tons of piercing!!

I finished off my card with a double ribbon of So Saffron Poly Twill and a Chocolate Grosgrain. I added two brads by American Crafts, and my sentiment, which is layered on oval punches, is also from Home Sweet Home, but I just inked up the words I wanted to use!!!

Head on over to the There She Goes Blog and play along! One lucky participent will win a $5.00 Gift Certificate to the There She Goes Store...bonus!!
