Sketch Challenge

This was my first time to make a card using a sketch challenge.  I see them on Splitcoast Stampers all of the time but I haven't had the time to do one until now.  Beate Johns has a blog that I follow and every weekend she has a sketch and you can make a card using that sketch.  So this weekend I was determined that I was going to make a card using her sketch.  I turned the sketch to the side but kept the layout exactly as she had it.

Here are the details:
I took an 8x4 inch piece of SU Kraft cardstock and folded it to make a 4x4 inch card.  Then a put a layer of SU Riding Hood Red that I had embossed using the Textile Cuttlebug embossing folder.  After that I added a strip of Kraft cardstock that I had paper pierced along the edge and then a narrower strip of Riding Hood Red.  I attached 3 silver brads to that strip and added it to the card.  The I stamped using Riding Hood Red ink on Kraft cardstock an image from Pocket Silhouettes from SU.  I added this final layer to the card front with dimensionals.  

It was a fairly easy card but I just love the look of the Red on Kraft.  Enjoy!
