My First Card Created For "Sketch Saturday" as a Design Team Member!!

Yay! I'm so excited to share my awesome news that I've been holding in for the last few days!! I recently applied to be on the design team for "Sketch Saturday" and I found out this week that I made the team!! When I first started card making and getting into blogging, "Sketch Saturday" was one of the first blogs I always looked to for sketchy inspiration and now it still doesn't feel real that I'm part of this super duper talented team!!

So without further's a little inspiration to get you started and my very first card as part of the team!!! Please be sure to check out all the other wonderful creations from the other Saturday Girls as well!!

You most likely know who my super adorable stamp is from!! But if you don''s a digi stamp from "Mo's Digital Pencil" called "Bronte Hearts Bella" found in the shop HERE! Mo's an amazing artist...I can't ever get enough of her!!

 Here's some more views...The sentiment is from "Stampendous" and was embossed. I tried dying the seam binding ribbon with some silvery metallic paint that I put into a spray bottle with some water....but it didn't turn out the way I wanted it too. It just kinda looks like a blotchy rusted grey

 A better view of the inside and bottom message panel...
