Sketch day

It is time to show you my Card Positioning Systems sketch card and I found another sketch this week I just had to use so gotta share that too.
I just got my hands on some of these new BasicGrey papers and stickers, so they are the main part of my card for CPS sketch #172. I just love the basic designs of this collection and I loved putting the red with the blacks/whites.
The red, embossed label is a Spellbinders Nestabilities and I cut it so it looks like arrows. The embossed label is perfect with Core'dinations cardstock since you can sand it and expose the embossed areas.
For this card, I found that Cosmo Cricket and SRM stickers was having a blog hop and a sketch challenge so I pulled out some of both to give it a try. I paired the Cosmo Cricket patterns with my Cosmo Cricket Core Impressions Core'dinations cardstock - perfect match!
This photo shows a nice close-up of the embossed pattern in the cardstock. I cut out one of the shapes in the paper and added it over the matching shapes with foam tape for some added interest and to match that the sketch has three elements on the top of the card.
Here you can see how nicely the SRM sticker worked for my sentiment and I added some Cosmo Cricket alphabet stickers to it.

Some photos to share:
We were driving around Weed, CA - at the Oregon border - and we saw these rainbows, the most intense colors we had ever seen in a rainbow. I loved how this one appeared to be going right into the ground.
Notice this one is a double rainbow although I didn't catch the second one well. It also points right into the snow topped mountain.
I love to be on the lookout for fun road signs and thought this one was fun.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
