Kinda Eclectic Challenge

Welcome to another week of the DOstampers challenge Thursday.  What I love about a Sketch challenges is that it gives you your starting base for making your project and it helps make your creativity easier.  

With my card and the sketch I wanted to do something a little different.  I wanted the sketch to come out in the stamping instead of layers.  I believe I accomplished that!

The stamp set that I used is one of my favorites, it is called "Kinda Eclectic".

Kinda Eclectic Clear Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!
I also added a little dimension in the background of the card with the stamp set called "Gorgeous Grunge".  This is my ultimate favorite set!  

For the ribbon bow I used Early Espresso Seam binding ribbon.  I took and looped it back and forth and then took the Antique Brad and put that around it.  Added a little bling with the Gold Sequins as the ends to the bow and then wrapped a little Linen Thread behind the bow to give it that grunge look.

If you would like to join in on the DOstampers challenge you are more then Welcome too!  Below is a list of some of the other DOstampers participating in this weeks challenge.  Enjoy!
