Today is Sketch File Update day and Jackie and I have new projects to share over there, I hope you'll take a look and maybe also follow the links that have been added to see what others have made too.

I've been playing with new downloads from Funky Hand.  There are four collections, themed for weddings, a different set for each season of the year.  Actually they have a much wider appeal than the title "Wedding" suggests, so don't think you won't be able to use them unless there's a wedding in the air.

For my Sketch File card this week I used the "Summer Wedding" set - I really love this pink, peach and creams paper set.  So far I've made a little gift box which I'll share on another day, and this card using the May "Cascading Circles" Sketch File LO

 Tools and Materials
All papers Funky Hand Summer Wedding download (available soon)
Cream Satin ribbon
Various fibres
Rub-on sentiment
EK Success Border Punch

This is the sketch from The Sketch File that I used for my birthday card.

I printed the papers on Bazzill textured card - the effect is really lovely so I'll be doing this again.  I only had 12x12 so cut them down to A4 size for printing.  I then did some cropping and resizing of the designs so that I could also use the strips I cut off the 12x12 sheets - cunning, or what? ;)

The balloons are hand-cut, then shaped using a quilling Ball Tool.  I added scraps of chipboard under the balloons to keep the dimension.

That's all for today, I hope you like what you see hear and will come again soon

Thanks for visiting
