Unscripted # 12

Good Morning all and Happy Saturday to you! I have exciting news for you, I am now nationally recognized as an Emergency Medical Technician, how cool is that! This all started when my husband and I realized there was a need for volunteer EMTS in our town especially women. We thought lets do it but about halfway through the course I was like this is nuts, I am just a volunteer what was I thinking wanted to quit and all that negative stuff! Well thankfully I got past the hump and I am quite proud of my husband and I!

I love this new Unscripted Sketch it's open to anything you can possibly imagine or create blindly which is my method of choice...

This card was created because I happened upon some old stash that I won at Scrap booking retreat it had a lot o die cuts which I rarely work with but I decided I was going to force myself to use these babies up. I started off using a base of coordinating patterned paper and layered with a neutral card stock after stamping it with flourishes and simple sentiments. I really like the die cut that was a twig this was my favorite and initially I had the three charms dangling down hanging from the hemp, I liked this look but something inside told me to rotate so I did. I used a corner rounder on all the corners of the layered center piece and stamped the sentiment. I added a few brads and the last parenthesis from the die cuts and sanded the edges and inked others. I used pop up strips for dimension and well, that's just about it...

I hope you can stop by and join the fun! Have a awesome day! BR-T
