My Cards and Tags: Reverse Confetti April SFYTT

You know I love me some Reverse Confetti, so I'm playing along with their April SFYTT (Sketch For You to Try) challenge.  Here's my card, which uses Reverse Confetti's Swirlies die, Thankful Pretty Panels die, and a stencil I made with the Fresh and Fruity die.

I started by making the background with a stencil I created from the leaves of the Fresh and Fruity die set.  I outlined the shapes with a pink colored pencil and inked inside the leaf shapes with a little bit of Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  Next I added a fabric scrap background, then cut and inked up the swirlies with some more Spun Sugar Distress Ink.  I cut the Thankful sentiment with black cardstock and added it on top.  I added some flowers that I had in my stash and smudged Peacock Feathers Distress Ink around the edge and finished it off with a Sharpie outline.

LOVED this sketch and had fun creating this one.  Thanks, Reverse Confetti, for the inspiring sketch!


  1. This is just beautiful. Your work is always so colorful... this is nice and soft, and I love the bold, black "thankful." The way you did the leaves in the background kicks butt.
    Happy Birthday to Bill Shakespeare! I'm guessing you're reading Much Ado... that's the first I read after I saw the movie in the early 90s...

    1. Doh... I mean anniversary of his death...

  2. Beautiful! Love the stenciled background and the layering of the material strips! Great choice of dies and sweet little flowers! Simply Fabulous!

  3. Very pretty! I love the strips of fabric over the stenciled background. Really great!

  4. Wow, this is so pretty! Love how you incorporated the fabric. Such awesome texture!
    Thanks for joining us for the April SFYTT!

  5. AWESOME card - LOVE all the details Andrea, just perfect!
