Sketchy Sunday {TG013}

Creative Avoidance is in full swing at the Crooked abode. I got totally distracted when, in a futile and hopeless attempt to keep up with my Google Reader backlog (I keep adding more blogs ... this is not good), I saw Tiff's Sketch Sunday post for this week:

I thought about baker's twine, but then I saw Tiff used that, so I came up with another plan: open and use my MFT banner die, so I did! I flipped the sketch to make banners work better, and this is what came out:

Those tiny strips of paper at the bottom are punch-out parts from die-cutting the banners. I call it my stand-in for the "row of stars" on the sketch. For my circle element, I used a PTI button, and the sentiment is A Muse.

That lame-o tied stuff in the button was my first attempt to use Scrapper's Floss (from Karen Foster). I need more practice. Other than that, I think this is a fun card for a girl's birthday. :)

Off to craft some more. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. This is sooo clever!!! Love your use of the MFT die! You definitely rocked this sketch :) THANK YOU!

  2. OH OH OHHHHHHHHH! i ♥LOVE♥ that sketch and your card is SUCH a brillllllllllliant version! i wanna write more...but at the moment...i really wanna just go use that sketch!!! :)

  3. Creative avoidance yields genius!!! I NEED a banner die or at least a cricut cartridge with a banner...


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
