Kazan's Sketch 20 @ 2S4Y & Thanks Coach!

I found this sketch difficult...but as I had a little time...into the wee hours of the morning...I gave it a try. I'm not sure if you can see this in the pics but I used genuine Swarovski crystals on the card. They were a big splurge of mine when they were on sale at Michael's a while ago. I am very stingy with them...but they REALLY catch the light like no rhinestone can do!
Materials: Bazill CS
K & Co pp
Cricut Joys of the Season (swirl and flower)
Cricut Jasmine (sentiment)
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Candy Apple Red)
Swarovski Crystals
Fiskars Threading Water punch

Tomorrow is the semi-final and final games for the a little card for the coach. Steve volunteers to coach our boys... he has no son on the team...and has been doing it for 3 years now, he does a great job, and the boys love him. So it seemed fitting to do a little something for him. I think a Tim Horton's gift card is in order!
Materials: Bazill CS
unknown pp (from my stash)
Cricut Plantin Schoolbook
Basketball printed on pp is from Kids Domain (coloring pages)

Thanks for looking. Shirley.

So glad you decided to join us this week. Love your sketch card. Your leaves look so dimensional layered & love how you did your flower. I also like that basketball card....I'm sure the coach will love it.

Hi Shirley -the symapathy card is so elegant in every way-I love the scalloped trim and the sentiment-the crystals are perfect like delicate dew drops.The card for coach is great-perfect for a masculine card1
By the way I've left something for you on my blog :-)

Well all I can say is that this card is stunning and so worthy of those crystals! Love how the burgandy is contrasted against the green.
Thanks for playing Shirley
