Friends at Speedy TV Get Sketchy

 Welcome to Friends of Speedy TV challenge this week. We are asking you to make a card with the sketch shown below. I made  my card using Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co. stamp "I'm In Stitches" and a pattern paper background that I found in my stash.  I stamped the sewing machine on white CS with black ink and added some gold and silver. My original design did not include the pin cushion but I decided I needed a punch of color. I made several attempts to get the look that I wanted. Finally ended up stamping on white CS with versamark and used red embossing powder and then sponged with green distress ink.  Changed the card base to red  to make it all come together.

 Use this sketch for your card this week.

What a clever idea to get that pop of color and use it as one of your circles. Great job on the sketch.
