TSSC 304 - Perfect Blend

BLOG CANDY:  Win Reason to Smile by interacting on my social media.  See details here. 

Here is this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge sample.  I actually had an interesting time this week.  This was going to be my prototype, but it wasn't going the way I envisioned.  I switched directions, but that card didn't really match the sketch.  So, I went back to this card.  In the meantime, one of my Oval framelits disappeared, so my prototype became the card I used.  Sometimes it just happens that way! :)

Here is this week's TSSC sketch:
 The line down the center of the sketch made me think of the card folded that way, so that's what I did.  Here's the card standing up so you can see how it opens:

 And here it is all the way open.  I sponged the inside just as I did the front.  I also added a few splotches.  The lines you see were scored with the Simply Scored tool.  Although the lines don't show that well in the pictures, they are around all of the edges.  I'll add an appropriate sentiment when I send it.  I'm thinking it will make a good birthday card for a friend.

Colors:  Crumb Cake, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory
Stamps:  Perfect Blend, French Foliage (for the splotches - could use stamp from Hey You, which comes with the My Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit)
Designer Series Paper (DSP):  Epic Day
Big Shot:  Ovals and Circles Framelits

You can see the rest of the design team samples at the TSSC website.  Then link your entry at the bottom of the TSSC post.  Hope you'll play along this week!

Check back tomorrow for this week's Weekly Deals.

Edit 3/9/14 - I just posted the card I mentioned in the first paragraph - the one that I decided not to use as my design team sample.  You can see it here.
