New Sketch Cahllenge



Good Saturday Morning Peeps! My blogging schedule sure has been a mess since I am not working! You would think be home all the time would give me more time to stamp than when I was working 6 days a week. Sure hasn't worked out that way. I have been busy cleaning, something I have neglected, and then with my camera problems it kinda makes me not want to post. Yesterday I was in the mood to make something and the stamp set I wanted to use was no where to be found. I spent at least two hours digging and looking for it. By the time I gave up I wasn't in the mood to make anything!

Today's card is made for a new sketch challenge, one I just found anyway. You can see it here.

I dug out some retired DS paper, Jersey Shore. I like the bright colors in it. I used Brilliant Blue and Pumpkin pie card stock along with the designer paper. I used a stamp set that I borrowed from my friend Lois. On your birthday, is definitely on my want list, which I am sure will be growing after seeing the new cattie later today!

I started with a base of whisper white followed by brilliant blue and then some of the DS paper. The next layer is pumpkin pie and then more DS paper. I stamped the sentiment onto whisper white and layered it onto some brilliant blue card stock. I pierced all around the top two layers. I used some pumpkin pie striped ribbon and punched a couple of stars out of the blue and pumpkin cardstock for the top corner element.

Well, that is all for now, Thanks so much for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
