A 'Round' of Applause for Skipping Stones Tuesday!

Yeah, okay, so that's a wicked cheesy title. What can I say? It's been a long week. Oh...wait...it's only Tuesday. HA! But, it IS Sketch Tuesday over at Skipping Stones and we DO have a great sketch for you today!

Happy Father's Day!

As you can see, this one is already out of my hands, as I gave it to my Daddy on Sunday! You could easily use a design like this with any sentiment repeated in the corner as I did with the Happy Father's Day stamp! I used two stamp sets for this one, Pumkin Seed Sentiments for the background and Holy Carp for the sentiment.

Happy Father's Day (SSD81) Close

The ribbon and the wired string are from May Arts (EA44 - Blue Crinkle, BY36 - Brown leaf, & KS72 - wired string) and they make me happy. Just say'n. I also used a pretty little paper flower from Retro Cafe Art and a Maya Road trinket pin!

Shall we discuss this sketch for a moment? I think, perhaps, we shall.

Why? Because it was hard but it wasn't. It's round. I don't generally do round. Round lacks, well, sides and corners and such. I happen to be a big fan of sides and corners and such. I DO however, often see GORGEOUS round cards so I was excited to try one out. And I like the result! Even if it doesn't have sides or corners and such. BUT...I have to tell you, some of the Stamp Tramps knocked it out of the park with this sketch! I'm talking some fabulous cards! Like as good as the Red Sox kind of knocked it out of the park kinda cards. Just say'n. So check out what they created!!!
