Good morning! Well, it's time for another sample from the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. This week's sketch was great! I love the long skinny cards. I found myself reaching for my SU Sweet Always paper, which is now retired. I still love that color combo, and my Sweet -n Sassy stamps seem to be calling for those chocolate and strawberry colors. I used my circle punch to actually punch the circles to adhere to the back of the DP, because I wanted larger scallops than what my scalloped edge punch would give me. I used my circle nesties, and scalloped circle nesties for the image. I LOVE those things, and really need to add some new ones to my collection. You know me and my bling. I found these rinestones the other day at the dollar store, and I bought about a dozen packages of them. Funny story... I found them in the scrapbooking aisle, and snapped them up, but when I got them home and looked at them, they were packaged as stick on body jewelry. Oops! Someone must have made a mistake, but I'm glad they did, because I don't check the body jewelry section with any regularity,( go figure!) and I'm afraid I would have never found this great bit of bling for cards at such a reasonable price!! ;-) I used a Stampin' Up! convention trick for my ribbon. All I could find that remotely matched was some left over Groovy Guava double stitched ribbon, but it was too light. I grabbed a pumpkin pie marker, and colored the top of the ribbon with that. Voila! Instant pumpkin pie double stitched ribbon. Problem solved.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you've found some inspiration, and I wish you a blessed and glorious day! Happy Stamping!!
