August Sketch For You To Try

Happy Saturday! It is also the first Saturday of the month so that means it is time for another Sketch For You To Try.

This month our sponsor is Kraftin'Kimmie Stamps. I didn't use their stamps on my card but you should still check them out because they have lots of cute images and their August release is coming soon.

This is the Sketch

This is what I came up with

After I saw the sketch I thought would be the perfect time to use my new PTI ice cream cone die and matching stamp set with. I started by cutting the ice cream out of Bitty Dots Patterned Cardstock then added white baby pom pom trim. The cone was cut out of Kraft cardstock then stamped with Chai ink and faux stitched with a black pen. The pattern papers are from this digi paper pack. The sentiment is from the PTI Sweet As Can Be stamp set stamped on a double banner die cut. 2 black buttons, a tiny flower with a pearl and machine stitching finishes it off. I am really loving the black and pink color combo. I hope you do too.
This month please join me in welcoming Tenia Nelson as our guest designer. Also be sure to stop by Jen's Blog and the other sisters blogs to see what they did with this sketch as well.
