Sketch Challenge At The Cuttlebug Spot

Good Morning to all you fabulous crafters! How was your weekend??? I hope you had a good one! Mine was kinda blah! The hubby had to work, so I spent most of the rainy, messy weekend in the house chillin'. I scrapped a bit on Saturday, but that was it. As some of you may know, I have a lot of problems with my right hand/wrist. I was in the colorguard (flag line) in the high school band and was also on the rifle line. Well one day during practice, I was doing a rifle toss and did not catch my rifle correctly. It fractured my thumb and I have had problems ever since. It just kills me that I can't work when I want to. But each time I pressed down on my trimmer or tried to hold something in my right hand, it was torture. So I am resting it a few days. It will get better...it is one of those things that comes and goes. Anyways, I'm looking forward to a better week! :)

Today is Monday and that always means that we have a new challenge for you at The Cuttlebug Spot. We are starting something new too! Each second week of the month we are going to have a sketch challenge and the sketch is provided by yours truly! I am so excited that Nilda asked me to do these. I haven't really had the chance to work on sketches much these past few months and I am so glad to be doing so. I love to create sketches! Here is the sketch for this week:
I haven't made a 'southern belle' card in a while, so I decided to do that with this challenge. I used Versamark ink and gold embossing powder for the stamped image. I also stamped the words 'charmed, I'm sure' (which is an old time southern saying) onto the card. I decided to dig into my scrap bin for this card. I pulled some leftover October Afternoon paper that I had from a previous kit. I incorporated a combination of red and yellow cardstock to match the patterned paper. I used the 'Victoria' Cuttlebug embossing folder on the strip of yellow cardstock.
Isn't she pretty? I love this image. I do not recall the maker of this stamp, but I believe it is a retired one. I found this on Ebay about a year ago.
Of course, what is a project without my favorite Helmar Adhesives!!! I used the Helmar Quick-Fix Adhesive Runner to adhere all of my paper. I used Helmar Zap Dots to form 2 levels of dimension, which you can see in the pic below. I also used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to adhere my flower.
This flower is from Prima Marketing, another leftover from a previous kit. Also, the ribbon, which I just adore, was a gift.

I hope you have enjoyed this card. Being such a big fan of anything old time and southern, I had so much fun making it. If you can, do hop on over to The Cuttlebug Spot to check out my fellow DT's projects. Also, join in on the challenge....we'd LOVE to have ya!

One more thing, I will choose the winner for my RAK before the day is out, so be sure to check back if you entered!!! Yall have a fabulous day! As always, thanks for stopping by my blog! Happy Scrappin'!
