All Star Birthday

It's time for another sketch from the team at Freshly Made Sketches and this week our hostess is the fabulously talented Rita Wright.  Check out her multi-layered sketch:

At the time I was making my card using this sketch, I needed a card for my niece's 10th birthday.  I was looking for something a 'tween would like and found my All-Star die and decided to make a purple and black card featuring this trendy shoe.

I sponged some Lavender ink around the shoe to give it a bit of dimension and also sponged some Fog ink onto the white parts to make them look a bit "worn".  The "birthday" die comes from Stamplorations and matches the trendy look I was going for.

Thanks so much for visiting!  As always, the rest of the design team have come up with some fabulous cards using the sketch, so I hope you'll head on over and check them out.

Oh, I just LOVE this high top sneaker and how fabulous it looks in purple! You paired it with the best sentiment, too...they work so well together! Such a fun card, Karren!

What a cool card! I love the shading on the shoe, especially how you made them look worn. Perfect for a tween --my tween is wearing a pair of these right now (not lavender, which I'm sure she wishes she had)!
