CYCI # 122 Sketch Challenge

This week's challenge over at Can You Case It is a sketch Challenge.  The sketch is shown below:

I chose to use Graphic 45 Mon Amour collection of papers. I love these papers!   This is a very easy card to make and is basically completely made with papers from this collection.  It is an A2 size with a vanilla base card.  I attached a 4.0 x 5.25" mat on the face of the card using one of the patterned papers.  A 2.75 x 4.0" band was added across the front of the mat with contrasting paper.  I then cut vanilla  oval using my Spellbinde'rs Large Oval dies.  The image (also from this paper collection) was cut using my Spellbinder's Small Oval dies.  The label for the sentiment was cut using the smallest die from the Spellbinder's A2 Matting Basics B die set.

After gluing all the paper elements onto the card, I added a black satin ribbon bow with a white flat back pearl in the center.   The label was adorned with 4 tiny flat back black pearls.  The sentiment was from a stamp I had in my stash.  I am sorry I don't know the name or manufacturer, but you could use any sentiment you would like.  

This was a really fun and easy challenge.  Why don't you stop on over to and and see all the wonderful cards submitted for the challenge and maybe even join in!  I think you will be glad you did!
