Beate's Sketch Challenge!!


I'm having so much fun with all the challenges this week! They give me so much inspiration! Sometimes I feel like I've lost my stampin' mojo, but then I find a challenge and I'm rarin' to go again!!

This one was for Beate's Sketch Challenge (you KNOW how much I love sketches) but it was also a big challenge for me to feature a sentiment rather than an image! Well, I took that challenge and I'm happy with the way it turned out!!

I grabbed my new Basic Grey Infuse papers and also a piece of Bazill Bling cardstock that a friend sent to me. I've never used this paper before but it is a coloured cardstock plus shimmery sparkle, plus texture all rolled into one piece of cardstock!! And this particular colour goes great with the Infuse!! So I stamped my sentiment right on a piece of the patterned paper in Chocolate Chip ink and I sponged around that piece and the patterned piece on the left to really make it distressed. The card base is a square (again with the squares???) and I added lots of Prima flowers and some antique brass brads. So simple but so rich in colour and depth. I know I'll use this sketch again!!

And speaking of sketches..........don't forget to enter my Sketch Challenge!! You have until Friday night and I have some awesome stamps to give away!!! Have a great day.....it's gonna be a hot one here!!!

Oh Kimmie that card is drop dead gorgeous!! I'm so jealous when I don't have everything to case a card. I have to say you were definitely rarin' to go when you made this. Incredible

Although I'm not into distressing, I must say I LOVE this card... what paper is that? Bazzil cardstock is what I use most for my cards... love the Bazzil bling. Have a great day... keep cool... say hi to Em for me... God bless.
