French Script Sketch

Tonight, I was bound and determined to get some quality stamping done. I have only a few more numbers to fill in for Barb's Bingo, and I wanted to get some extra numbers drawn for tomorrow. So DS went to bed, and I didn't turn on the computer, I just tackled the to-do list I made for myself this afternoon. Granted, I only got a couple things off the list, but usually I get sucked into blog surfing. Maybe it's all the Diet Coke I've consumed today that has perked me up...

First, I completed the SCS sketch challenge that was posted today. You can see the sketch here. I used French Script, stamped in Really Rust. The ribbon was taken from a package I received some time ago. Funny thing - it was a little wrinkled, so I thought I would iron it. Cranked up my iron, and promptly melted a bit of the ribbon all over the plate of the iron. Luckily I was able to get it off right away. It would have been the second iron I ruined in the last 6 months. (That's why DH does the ironing!)

The flowers are from a RAK and I don't have a brand. The dotted brad is from Target last fall. And there are some Dew Drops in the upper right corner. I thought about putting a sentiment in the lower right corner, and decided against it. What do you think?Second on my list was the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge by Mary Jo, at Techno Stamper. She has fabulous sketches and you should take a look at what people are creating with them. WOW! (OK, I realize I might have said that same thing last time I posted her challenge. They are that good.)

I used a Certainly Celery base and some dp I had in my stash. The ribbon is from the craft store and is mounted on a pink panel. The image is from Winged Things and is colored with Prismacolors and blended. Sentiment is Studio G from Michael's.
Thanks for looking!

This is a very elegant card, Melissa. Thanks for sharing it with us. Round 4 Bingo, for the 'H', has been won today by Sarah. However, your card is still okay for the next round for a full card.

Oh, how pretty. Both of these cards are wonderful. I have not gotten to that SCS sketch yet, hopefully today. I love the one for my sketch. The colors are so springy. Did you stamp on the ribbon? Great job,thanks for playing.

Pretty cards, especially the french script one. I don't think I would add a sentiment; it might complete with the script image. I like this card just the way it is. Thanks for the extra bingo number!
