Sketch Challenge with Whimsical Designs!

 Hi Everyone and what a Whimsical Day with Whimsical Wednesday Challenge. This week we have a Super Fun Sketch Challenge that our Super Talented Nanne has created for us to Design with!
Now I have another confession for you this week (boy I have alot of issues don't I , LOL!) Well I have to say, I have a Huge Fear of Sketches (gasp!) They really frighten me for some reason, lol! I just Love to look at sketches and and love what other people do with them but whenever I have to use one, I get really nervous, lol! They always seem so easy but when I print it out and wonder what I'm going to do I get all nervous and just stare at it for days! This was no different and even tho I didn't follow it to a tee I did use the concept, lol! 
Well as some of you may know I've been going through alot of my craft supplies because my Wonderful Hubby gave me a new scrapbook area! (It still needs finishing and when it's done I will show you it, I promise, lol!) Well in my "Cleaning" I came across these little felt coasters from Michael's that alot of people were using a few years ago and I have this paper stack that I just Love from K & Company (very Vintage looking papers) and I knew I just had to do something with them and I didn't want to use my Cricut (GASP!) I know, not use my Cricut! Did I fall down and hit my head or something you ask!? No I just figure it's a Sketch challenge, and since they frighten me, I figured, why not really challenge myself and Not use my Cricut! So I didn't! What do you think!? I really Love it! Love the colors, so Springy and Fresh and of course I had to add some sparkle! I did use my Cuttlebug and a few punches though. All the scalloped circles that the pink coaster is on is my scalloped Spellbinders die and the large butterfly is a cuttlebug die. The small butterfly is a MS punch and the flower I made with a EK Success punch. I hand cut the banner/flags using some scrap pieces and I inked every thing to give it a even more Vintage feel and then popped most of the layers for some depth and dimension. Added some stickles to the butterflies for a bit more sparkle.  
I also added some Cute little Pom Pom trim and a bit of eyelet lace I had and added a pretty little resin flower. Then I used Stephanie's new Stamp "Everyday Sentiments" and embossed it. I have to say this is the first time in ALONG time that I did some heat embossing (and it won't be the last) but I have to ask you all, "Any pointers for embossing!?" And does embossing powder go bad or do I just have some old, not very good embossing powder (not this one, I had a few trial and error ones, lol)? And also, what is a good embossing ink to use!? Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!!!!!  
Well here is the Sketch that Nanne created and the one we were to use as our challenge. I sure hope you decide to join us over at Whimsical Wednesday Designs for the challenge, remember it's open for two weeks so make sure you link up and play along with us. Please make sure it's a new creation and please link to Whimsical Wednesdays Blog in your post, there are the full requirements on the Whimsical Wednesday's Blog so make sure you check them out. 
And if your Lovin the Sentiment on my card you can get some of your own right HERE! So much fun and so many uses for all the sentiments so make sure to check them out! 

Have a great rest of the week and hope you get to do some crafting and decide to join us. 
Until next time.........................................

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa
