TCP Tuesday #215 -- Sketch Challenge

I am hosting this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge, #215, another fabulous sketch designed by Leigh O'Brien. Here's what we're playing with:

For my sketch sample, I started with a pre-made tag element (no idea who the manufacturer is, much less the collection ... it came in a goody bag along with a recent Emma's Paperie order), trimmed it down to fit a standard A2 card, then added the notebook punched top edge at the top (totally inspired by Amy Rohl again) and the rounded corners at the bottom. The cork mustache and star punches/die-cuts were both from my leftover pile, as was the black ricrac. The mustache was done with one of TCP's Mustaches CutUps dies, and the stamped portions of the sentiment are from The Mustache Set. Since this was turning into a hodgepodge of sorts, I decided to ADD SOME WASHI TAPE! Yes, I'm shouting! I've collected a dozen or more rolls, mostly for my project life album, but have yet to use a single bit on an actual project -- until now! Love the scrappy look! I know at least some of you will share my excitement, right?

Enough chatter, here are all the challenge details ...

1. Each Tuesday we will give you a challenge.
2. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
3. Add your entry to the guestbook on Alma's blog and/or upload to the SCS Gallery, using the keywordTCPTUES215 for this week's challenge.
4. TCP stamps/dies are not required, but of course, highly encouraged.
5. There will be one randomly chosen weekly winner, announced on Tuesdays.
6. There will be one winner, The Swanky Stamper, announced the 1st of each month. They will win several sets from an upcoming release and get to play along with us at our Pajama Party and Blog Hop.

Have a happy Tuesday, friends!

Hey! I saw this card on pinterest and was wondering if it was yours? http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-eTMigOaDRyE/TgOujzEs46I/AAAAAAAAEyM/jJAgR8d5hcc/s1600/JRforeverfriendselegantframes1_aks.jpg

It was a point of inspiration for one of my projects and I wanted to give you a shout out. Let me know!
