Welcome to the Ink Stamp Share Sketch Blog Hop today!  

Sketches are a great starting point for making cards and I always enjoy them because I sometimes feel I approach cards in the same way and I guess that's just my style but it's good to try something different every now and again isn't it.

For today's Blog Hop, we have all created our cards with the card sketch below as our starting point, and a guide to follow.  Usually when I see a card sketch, I try to think as far outside the box as I can but for my design I have followed the sketch to the letter and I'm really pleased with the outcome. 

Using a Thick Basic White card base, I have added a layer of Purple Posy Cardstock that I have embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder. 

To create my banner, I have cut a piece of Basic White Card to measure 2" wide, and created the banner shape with the Banner Triple Punch (RETIRING SOON!).  I have added the Basic Black Card accent to the banner in the same way, and attached to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

The sentiment comes from the Moving Along Stamp Set (also retiring) and added some Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets to finish.
