Sassy Cheryl's / Sunday Sketch and Stamp / Stamptacular Sunday Challenge

Howdy! I hope you are having a fantastic week so far.

I made my card using the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Sketch for this week. I am also including this in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week which is called Going in Circles. Here is the sketch...

...and here is my card...
I joined the Paper Craft Planet group for Sassy Cheryl's Digi Stamps. I am just crazy about these stamps. She has such a fun, whimsical style. Yesterday, it just seemed like so many on the group were not feeling well or had sick kids. That inspired me to make this card. I used paper that I got from Embellish-It Scrapbooking called Pink Paisley.



I colored my image with Copics. I colored her shorts to match the spotted paper on the card. I really wanted to get the effect of the water, so I used Crystal Effects on the rain drops and the puddle. I can't help myself. I will probably have to do that every time I use this image.


Pink Paisley has some really cute brads called Bella Brads that match the spotted paper perfectly, only in a mini form. Now, I must confess that I did not have that particular brad on hand, so I had to make my own. I used the Build A Brad by Stampin' Up! I punched out two circles from the Postcards paper by Pink Paisley. I glued to the brad and covered with the acrylic circle. I like this because it adds more of the water effect to the card. What a great embellishment for my Prima flowers.

I knew what I wanted to say, but lacked the sentiment stamp, so I created my own. I made this in Word 2003 and printed it out. I used my label punch to punch it out and colored the edges with Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip ink (Stampin' Up!). I am hooked. I will likely make a whole selection of sentiments for myself.

The special on ribbon continues at Embellish-It Scrapbooking.
1. Each customer who purchases $5.00 in American Crafts products will receive a spool of ribbon.
2. For every purchase of Thickers, you will receive a free spool of American Crafts ribbon. So, if you buy 3 packs of Thickers, you get 3 spools of ribbon for free.
