My bloggin' friend from down under, Makeesha, has a cute sketch challenge that I always want to play but never seem to get around to, and since she actually challenged me to play along, I made it a priority today! Here is the sketch, it is a really fun one:
and since I am trying to use some of my less-used sets, I pulled out Lovely as a Tree and paired it with my new set, Define Your Life:
It's hard to see but the tree was stamped in Sage Shadow Craft ink, then heat embossed with Iridescent Ice EP. The rest is fairly simple; Sage Shadow and Brocade Blue are the colors I used; a little twig punch from MS and some white brads from my stash add the embellishments. Ribbon is SU's pretty organdy. I wish you could see it IRL, with all the sparkle!
I also did a real quick card for this week's CAS Fall to Layout #47 sketch:
My sentiment is not quite as big as the sample:
This is Bella Bleu DP, one of the few that didn't retire. The colors are sort of odd---the catalog says Kraft and Not Quite Navy, and yet my card uses Sahara Sand and Brocade Blue. I think they match more closely, don't you? Dreams du Jour and the new Teeny Tiny Wishes are the stamps used.
Thanks for visiting today, enjoy the rest of the weekend!
