Anna, Anna, Glamourous Anna, Anna Nicole...

Look at me!! It's Sketch for You to Try day, and not only am I posting early, but I stuck to the sketch! YAY ME!!

So my week off didn't have as much stamping as I hoped, but I did get to spend some time with the fam, which was great! Over queso yesterday, Jen & Susan were telling me that this sketch was a toughie, so I was out to prove them wrong! Tell me what you think...

Fun, huh? I know, it's not my usual style, and I don't think I've ever used felt on a card, but I really like it! The other day I picked up some K & Co. Wild Saffron paper & felt stickers, thinking it was time I tried them out. Love them!! The paper comes with the cute decorative die cut edges, so I just cut it to size (about 5" square) and matted it. The entire card measures 5 1/4" square.

Since I don't have circle Nestabilities (YET!), I cut the outside circle 1/2" bigger than the inside with my Creative Memories Circle Cutter and scalloped the edges with my corner rounder. Took a little concentration, but I got 'er done! *grin* Then I finished off the card with a sentiment from the Verve set Here for You, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite sets (this week)!
