Thank You Card by Pam Bray

Hi it is Pam today on the blog excited to share with you my take on the August Sketch Challenge...I choose #3 from the sketches that is shared on the challenge photo.

This month you will have the opportunity to choose one of these four Die-Namites  sketches to create your project. You can make a card or  layout. And guess what? The Dare is Anything Goes!!!

Here are the rules to play along!
TO ENTER the Die~Namites Dies May Sketch Challenge YOU MUST:

1.Use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation. 
2.Use one of these SKETCHES! It can be interpreted (loosely or exactly) as a card, layout, or altered piece! 
3. Incorporate the DARE into your creation. 
4. Mention the Die~Namites Die you used in your blog post. 
5. Link back to the Die~Namites Die. 
6. You have until August 30 to post your creation on your blog and link up to this post.  **PLEASE add a link to your direct post, not your entire blog.**
Each participant will receive one entry into our random drawing
for each entry into the challenge.
 A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a
$25 Gift Certificate to Die~Namites Dies.
I began by first layering my pattern paper and border onto black card stock that was placed on a 5" x 6,1/2" card base. I cut two darker and one lighter Heart Leaves Swirl DN-1194 from pattern paper and one Elegant Medallion DN-1092  from pattern paper.

 Elegant Medallion DN-1092

Heart Leaves Swirl DN-1194

I love Xyron Creative can run both 9" and 5" adhesive. It allows you to run a lot of large pieces or small intricate ones like the Die-Namite die cuts that are so detailed.

Remove the intricate Heart Leaves Swirl DN-1194 from the Xyron adhesive sheet and place them on the front of the prepared card base. (Leave the Elegant Medallion DN-1092 on the adhesive sheet til you need it.)

Add double mat to over the top of the Heart Leaves Swirl DN-1194.
Take the Elegant Medallion DN-1092 off the adhesive sheet and place the matted piece.

Add a sentiment and a couple of layer embellishment from the sticker sheet. 

I hope you enjoyed my take on the August Sketch Challenge #3. Hope you play along with us this month and link your entry to the blog. We would love to have you as friend, follower and subscriber to the following social media avenues: Facebook  Fans, Pinterest and Instagram.
 Hugs Pam
