Happy Saturday! Well I finally got my wish for the weather to cool off. Unfortunately with the cooler weather also came thunderstorms and lightening too which caused us to lose our internet yesterday afternoon. Thankfully it came back late last night so I could get this posted since today is also the first Saturday of the month which means it is time for another Sketch For You To Try.
This month our sponsor is Skipping Stones Designs They have a lot of great images so be sure to check out their website.
This is the sketch
This is what I came up with
I started by stamping the purse from the Birthday Purses Set on a Vintage Cream circle, then I paper pieced it with pattered paper from Echo Parks Victorian Gardens line. After that I colored in the handles with Copics then added a paper rose and a pearl in the middle. When I was done with that I matted it on a Hibiscus Burst scalloped circle and added some black stitching. I used more of the Victorian Gardens Patterened Paper in the background then stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Purses Set on a double end banner die cut that I matted with black cardstock. To finish the card off I added some more black stitching.
This month please join me in welcoming 2 new sisters to the team,
Becky Carafa and
Iwona Palamountain (Chupa) as well as
Alyssa Scritchfield as our guest designer this month.
Be sure to stop by their blogs for a visit and don't forget to stop by Jen's Blog and the other sisters blogs to see what they did with this sketch as well.
We would also love for you to play along too. You can find all the details and the place to link your card here.
That's it for now. I hope you have a great holiday weekend and as always thanks for stopping by.
