Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge ... on Sunday!

Last weekend, on the Cape Retreat with my other demonstrator friends, my upline challenged us to participate weekly in Mary Jo Price's Sketch Challenge. I forgot about it until today ... that gets me in just under the wire since the sketch is released weekly on Mondays!!

TechnoStamper's Sketch

My "take" on the Sketch

I feel like the options were endless! But, since I needed a birthday card for my brother-in-law for this upcoming week, I decided to use The Open Sea and the Nautical Expedition DSP. (This paper is on the Clearance Rack which you can see right here!)

Close-up View of a part of the card.

The base of my card is Marina Mist -- I have a small navy piece of card stock under the designer paper just to give it some stability. The scallop on the side of the images is from the Tasteful Trim die. I wrapped some Early Espresso Baker's Twine (I'm thinking hemp would have worked really well here too but it was upstairs and I'm downstairs!) around the trim. Lastly, the sentiment is from the Loving Thoughts stamp set -- that set could potentially retire on Monday with the end of the Mini Catalog!! Oh yes, and the Open Sea stamp set was carried over from last year's catalog -- you can still get that set if you need a fabulous go-to, manly set!!

Don't forget to check out what other stamper's have made with this sketch with the blog hop!
