And it's Freshly Made Sketch day again where I join up with my amazing teamies and we show you cards made using the latest sketch - which this week comes from the super-funny and oh-so-very talented Linda Callahan.

And here's my card:

I went for a card suitable for an adolescent boy's birthday.  After stamping the iPhone onto some white cardstock, I cut it out by hand because I haven't bought the dies for this set yet.  I stamped the greeting in Green Apple on the "screen" and then decided to emboss the HB2U in Wild Wasabi EP.  Luckily they look a close-enough match!  The gray panels are popped up on foam tape leaving the strip in the center where the embossed greening is.  

I used some stamps from Gorgeous Grunge to mimic the shape in the top right corner, then also added some to the bottom left for interest, using Versamark ink for a tone-on-tone look.

Thanks for visiting.  As always, my team-mates have some amazing and varied cards so be sure to check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Text Me (Clearly Besotted), Gorgeous Grunge (SU)
Ink:  Versamark, Archival Black, Green Apple (SSS)
Cardstock:  Black, Basic Gray, White
Accessories:  Wild Wasabi EP

A perfect card for a teen boy! I love the clean look, and I love how you added the grunge stripe for the element in the top corner. Cute sentiments for the phone too. Great card, Karren!
