Smile, Have a Goodie

WooHoo for Friday!  One more work day until a beloved 3-day weekend.  I've got a card for you using the bonus sketch #1 over at Unscripted Sketches.  Did you see the announcement over there where you can win a great prize by playing with at least 3 sketches during the month?  Fellow DT member, Liz, has a new online store, Thoughts2Paper, and is offering a fabulous prize.  There will also soon be a coupon to use in her store for Unscripted fans. If you missed the announcement, check it out here.  Also, there's just one more day to get your bingo cards in if you're going to play that. 

I'm going to enter my card into this week's challenge at Practical Scrappers for border punches.

Now I've got to admit that the sketch had me a bit stumped to beging with.  I decided to go to my Color Coutre binder to see if I could work with anything there and then it started coming together.  I pulled out the sewing machine on this one but messed up on one of the sides and thus, the edged border was born.  LOL

***Supplies***
Stamps:  PTI Beautiful Blooms 2

Other:  PTI Color Coutre, Fiskars border punch

I'll be back here tomorrow with my regular Unscritped Sketch for Saturday, my Christmas card for Sunday, and then I'm the featured designer at Unscripted Sketches on Monday and I've got a big Christmas post ready to go for that.
