Blue Jeans

For this card I was inspired by the Deconstructed Sketch.
I used a chevron embossing folder for my background paper. I used sandpaper to make the pattern more visible and to give it a distressed look, and I inked the edges with Walnut Distress Ink.
The panel with sentiment has a heat embossed sentiment in Norwegian, meaning "Wishing you a day filled with smiles and laughter". I used brown embossing powder, and the bronze colored look of the paper is created with a peach colored mist on kraft.
The jeans pocket I cut out from a DP, as well as the banner with textured pattern. I stamped and heat embossed 2 stars for embellishments.
The small picture shows the inside of the card. A die cut pocket, with golden thread for the stitching and a sentiment. I've used mist also for this paper.
I liked this sketch so much, so I'm working on a female version as well, in between all my confirmation cards for boys.

I'm a bit behind with my commenting, but I will do my best to try and catch up. Between blogger issues, internet issues and all those confirmation cards to make it's been a challenge to keep up with you all:)

This card is for these challenges:
1) Deconstructed Sketch - Sketch #102
2) QKR Stampede - #40 One for the Boys
3) Moving Along With The Times - Embossing
4) My Heart Pieces Digital Stamps Challenge - Be Sentimental
5) Inky Impressions - #109 Distress
6) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
