RI Sketch Challenge - Thank you grapes


Hello!  It's time for another Repeat Impressions sketch challenge! 

For my card, I started with the Grapevine Border (1504-O), which I stamped on white paper and colored with Copic markers.  Next I stamped the grape cluster from the Daily Red FLIP Set (7506-W) twice and colored those with the same Copic markers and then stamped the Thanks sentiment (8607-D) from Quartet Complements in lavender ink.  The stamped images are all matted on lavender patterned paper and then on dark purple vellum and were distressed with Old Photo Distress Ink.  All the papers are from Laura Ashley. 

For the inside I used a Martha Stewart border punch on the vellum layer and added some scraps from the papers used on the front.  Please be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has made using the sketch over at The House that Stamps Built

This card is on its way to my sister to thank her for a beautiful silver tray with a grapevine border that she sent us for our silver anniversary.  She loves purple and grapes so this card is perfect for the occasion - precisely what I love about making cards!

We would love for you to play along with us by making a card using this sketch.  Simply create a card based on the sketch, upload your card to your blog or Splitcoast gallery, then link your card on today's post over on the Repeat Impressions blog. Submissions will be accepted until 5pm (eastern time) on June 29th.

Hope your week is going well!  Thanks for stopping by!
