My Everything - Bloggers Challenge Sketch

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, I'm glad you stopped by today!  Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Floral Frenzy, I loved seeing all the wonderful floral creations!  This week is  favorite challenge - it's sketch week!  I enjoy sketch challenges, as it gives me a jumping point, just pick my papers and stamps and I'm ready to roll!

Here's this weeks sketch challenge, feel free to take some creative liberties with the sketch (as I have).  I changed my card in size to 5-1/2" x 5-1/2" and moved the circle down slightly to add my Metal Rose embellie.

Wanted to fill in some of the openness of the Green pattern paper, I half-hazzardly added some stitching.  The beautiful sentiment (My Everything) is from Verses Rubberstamps, stamped in Ranger Coffee Archival on White, then cut with Spellbinders Circle Die.  I stippled some Carmel ink ink over the sentiment and sponged the edges in Chocolate.  To create the Rose, I embossed a piece of TSS Metal with a Texture Fades folder and die cut with Spellbinders Rose Creations Die. (Note you may have to run this through your machine a few times or add a shim).  I sanded the embossing to add highlight, then scrunched and bent the metal and added a Pearl Brad.

Details:
Stamps - Unity (stitch stamp), Verses Rubber Stamps (sentiment(
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, SU Chocolate, Caramel
Card Stock - Pink, White, Chocolate
Other - Spellbinders Rose Creations Die, Spellbinders Circle Dies, Stipple Brush, Zva Creative Pearls, Basic Grey Out of Print Pattern Paper, Ten Second Studios Metal, Texture Fades Folder, Dura Sand Sanding Block, Dimensionals, Brad, Big Shot

additional challenge:
