Madison Avenue Friend - Sketch Frenzy Friday

Sigh!!! Today is Friday, and not only is it time for Sketch Frenzy Friday, it is also the last day of Sale-a-bration Enjoy the last card using the Sale-a-bration products for tomorrow it's on to different things.
Today's sketch is mine.

03/22/13 Maria Vanderform 

The base card is Island Indigo, layered with  Honeycomb embossed Whisper White.  

Did any of you notice that this particular embossing folder tends to cut through the card stock?  To prevent this, place a piece of either vellum cardstock or a piece of scrap cardstock the size of the folder on top of the paper being embossed and then run it through the Big shot.  Works every time!

The image panel was turned on its side to accommodate the image, which is from the Madison Avenue stamp set. The leaves were stamped with Old Olive ink, and the Tangerine Tango flower was added using the stamp-a-ma-jig as a guide.  I'm afraid I still need some practice using that tool as the flower is not quite straight. A Tangerine Tango button was placed in the middle of the flower and then a rhinestone.  This Whisper White panel was matted with Island Indigo and attached to the card using dimensionals.

The Sycamore Street designer paper is also matted with Island Indigo.  A piece of Tangerine Tango ribbon was placed near the bottom  and it was then attached to the right side of the card.

Sentiment is from Teeny Tiny images and is stamped using Island Indigo ink.

Here's the list of the materials I used:

Stamps: Madison Avenue, Teeny Tiny wishes
Inks: Island Indigo, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango
Papers: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Sycamore Street DSP
Accessories: Honeycomb folder, rhinestones, Word Window punch, Modern Word Label Punch, 1/4" Tangerine Tango satin ribbon, Tangerine Tango button, stamp-a-ma-jig, dimensionals, glue dots.

Great sketch, Maria--even though I didn't participate this week, I am saving the sketch to use for some workshop cards. Love the elements on your card.
