TGIFC11 - A New Framelit?!

I needed to make a card for a friend today and I thought I would play along with the new TGIF Challenge.  I always like a sketch!  I've been pretty busy with our move and played last week for the first time in awhile.  And well... I finally won!  I was shocked, but just as honored to be picked! 
 
So here is the sketch for this week's challenge.  Click the picture to head on over to their site.

For some crazy reason I passed on ordering Awesomely Artistic with my first order from the new catalog.  Once I came to my senses and ordered it, I could hardly wait to receive it!
 
Here's my first card that I made with this set.  This set is pretty "AWESOME"!  I added an ombre look to the sentiment using Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon and Island Indigo markers.
 
 
 I'm excited to show you something I discovered!  (Are you wondering how the tag was made!?)

 
I love trying to use my punches in new ways. Mercedes Weber recently used the bow builder punch to make this tag.  As I looked at the punch a little closer, I thought I'd try something new and fancy-up my corners. Yes... fancy-up :)
 
 
I layered the sentiment on Basic Black CS and punched the corners again.
 
 
Pretty cool, huh?
And just because I love to "fancy-up" the inside too... Here's a look at the inside of the card.

 
Sure hope you enjoyed this new trick! 
Please give it a try - and pin it too!
 
Happy stamping!

  2. This is beautiful! Such a clever use of the punch to create a unique shape. I love your colour combination. And I totally agree - I passed over Awesomely Artistic and I'm regretting it big time - it will be on my next order, for sure! Cheers and glad to see you playing along at TGIF again! :)
