365 Cards: Signature Style

Hey there peeps! It's getting late here on a wednesday and you can see that I am so late with my post, but I am getting it done just in time! This week at 365 Cards we are celebrating. ONE FULL YEAR of 365 Cards. Those of you who joined in on the fun from the beginning should have a serious stack of cards to show! 
Just one year ago I was asked to be on the design team of this great blog and participate twice a week with challenges for all of you to join in. Unfortunately that year has come to an end, and with a new baby to take care of I thought it appropriate to step down after a wonderful year at 365 Cards . I wanted to thank Pam and all the other fabulous designers at 365 Cards for such a fun and wonderful opportunity. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Today's challenge for me was to create a card using my signature style. Well, lets just say I was plain STUMPED! But I did pull out some things that I LOVE to use and find myself turning to again and again. I love to background stamp, and of course use buttons and twine, so here is what I came up with:

I used gold ink to stamp some medallions on my craft card base. Then I added some Terra Cotta ink with a text stamp. Then added more medallions with a brown ink. Lots of background stamping for ya! I popped up my frame with some dimensionals to showcase my sentiment. And of course I had to add my twine and rustic button. Thats a signature for ya! I hope you all have loved playing along this past year not just with me but with all of the 365 Card designers. We sure have had a great year!

Hope to see what you all create for today's challenge: You will need to scraplift something from this card and also use some modern influences to create your card. The sky's the limit folks!

Thanks again for playing and be sure to join in some other Sketch Fun HERE for your chance to win some free stamps!
