Girls Rock!

Hello Friends,

For today I am playing along with RetroSketches. At first I saw this sketch and thought I would pass but then it wouldn't be a challenge would it? Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I thought this sketch would make a perfect card for my daughter's first day of school.
Now the trick will be for her not to find it.. 
I really like the movement of the black border.
To me, having straight lines with this background and layout didn't make too much sense.

 Left: A detail of the stars with its lustery silver stars. I thought this would make the perfect 'neutral'.  Right: Detail showing the stitched border and the colors on the background that were colored using Distress Markers and a damp cloth for wiping the embossed areas.

Challenges Entered:
RetroSketches: Challenge #226



I cannot believe school in the USA is about ready to start up. Teachers and parents alike are gearing up for another year of learning and growing! Wow! Does time fly when you are having fun. But our fun isn't over yet! We still have two camping trips to complete before school and two more planned for after the school year starts. Summer isn't over yet friends; I am hanging on til' the end! 

So that concludes another post. More will come in the next twenty-four hours; that is a heads up and an apology for bombarding your inboxes. I do however, would like to thank you for joining me for this post. I hope you enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you soon. Until then, take care and happy crafting...

All the best,
Shawna

Wow now that's an eye catching card. Loving the movement and yes the swirl ...not straight sentiment strip works so well. Lots of hard work and a perfect take on the not too easy sketch x
