UDI Sketch Challenge 5/2

It's a rainy day here in North Texas. I was supposed to do a craft show today but it has been postponed due to the Swine Flu outbreak. They are being very cautious about this. BUT, since the craft show was postponed I'm off to our first rehearsal of our Church Summer Musical, Music Man. We are very lucky to have a Tony Award Winning Producer, Mike Skipper as a member of our congregation and he has agreed to direct it. I know it will be great. I am playing Eulalie (the Mayor's wife of Grecian Urn fame).

Oh, I bet you want to see my creation for the challenge, huh? Well, here it is! You can see the sketch (which I altered a little) and what everyone else has done here on the UDI Blog.

Okay, it keeps loading it sideways and it's not saved like that, but you get the idea. This is actually an altered CD! I thought it was fun how the exposed CD is bright and Shiny for the "clean" side.

Here's the supplies:

Sizzix Naturally Serif die, CD, Bella Rose Paper, Crimper, Sticky Strip, Pretties kit, Clear buttons, Hemp, Scallop edge punch

I learned how to make the scallop trim from someon's blog (can't remember who, but thank you!). It's very easy, just cut a 1" strip of DSP and punch along the edge with the Scallop Edge Punch. Run this strip through your crimper. I then trimmed it to about 1/2". The crimping of it allows it to be flexible and it will tape down beautifully!

Have a great weekend!!!!
