You're An Original

I can’t believe it is July 1st already!!  Where did June go?  This means it is time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog and another chance to win a stamp chance of your choice.  

Here is the July sketch.   Very easy so get started and enter your creation.  You will have until July 31st to enter.  Go here for all the details.  Here is a little inspiration to get you going. 

I used the new Vintage Boutique Stampette Set for my card, along with the new Scissors image.  I heat embossed the dress form and scissors with Cappuccino EP and cut them out with the Sew Cut File and the Vintage Boutique Cut File. 

I used the Watercolor Cling Wrap Technique to create the rectangle behind the dress form and the Lace Backgrounds with EP Technique on the die cut behind the scissors.  All of this is layered on a chevron decorative cardstock of pink, yellow and green pastels combined with brown and black.  I love pastels accented with browns and blacks.  For full details on this card check out the SNS gallery. 

You can find more inspiration from other designers at the Sketch Challenge post.  I can’t wait to see your creative ideas. 

If you are at the Scrapbook Expo on Jul 6 – 7 at the GWINNETT CENTER, 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, GA 30097 make sure you stop by the booth to say hi.  April and I will be there to demo and would love to see you.
