Ismaki #30

This week there is a sketch by Isa. Along with folowing the sketch they are asking that the main image mat swivel!! I almost just said forget it because I never tried it before and had no idea how to do it!! BUT I found dental floss and made a go of it!! I kind of went monochrome with this one! I decided to keep the card simple because I didn't want to take away from the swivel!! AND the dental floss works great!! I tried to grunge it up a bit as it is a deep red color!!

Paper: K & Co.
Stamps: Vintage Christmas ~ Crafty Secrets
Inks: Distressed inks ~ brushed corduroy and tea, brown timber staz-on
Accessories: Ribbon ~ Melissa Frances, Brads ~ MM


Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!! Also don't forget to try out the Sarah Kay Sketch ~ it is a easy one and I am loving all the variations I have seen!!
