Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #4

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Are y'all ready for this month's Paper Sweeties challenge?  Well, the Design Team is back to share how Sketch Inspiration #4 inspired them, and we can't wait to see how it inspires you!  Here's my take.
I started this card by stamping a piece of ink distressed, Pool Party cardstock, in Pool Party ink, with the cloud images.  I then white embossed it with the snowflakes; framed it with a piece of White cardstock, as well as white-threaded, zig-zag, machine stitches; and adhered it to the Pink Pirouette, cardstock, card face.  The hearts, as well as the long and short pennants, were stamped, in Jet Black ink, on various, color-coordinating, patterned papers; hand cut out; and adhered, some flush to the card face and others with foam tape, in an arch, over the clouds and snowflakes.
The long pennant to the far left of the design was stamped, in Jet Black ink, with the "I {Heart} You" sentiment.
Die cut, from felt, and stitched together, with white-threaded, straight, machine stitches, hearts, as well mini buttons, laced with white string, form the full banner; and sheer, pink bows, embellished with a pink button, laced with a hemp twine bow, and white sticker blossom, backed with a hemp twine bow, respectively, complete the look.
Here's this month's sketch to get you started.  You have until the close of the month EST to get your takes linked up, over at the challenge link above, in order to be in the running to win two, Paper Sweeties, stamp sets.  Yea!  Then, the girls will have a brand new sketch, for you all, beginning March 1, 2013.
Thanks so much for peeking in, and have a fantastic Friday!
