Sparkle N Sprinkle September Sketch Challenge

Wow!!  I can’t believe it is September already.  I have survived the first 8 days of school with 30 little kindergarten children.   I have to admit it is nice to have a long weekend in front of me.  Well, it is time for a new sketch challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog.  Here is the new sketch.


Pull out your Sparkle N Sprinkle stamps and get creative for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  Link your card here before the end of the month.
 

For my card sample I used one of the new Michelle Perkett digital images, Snow Family With Sign.  I printed it in black and added grey shadowing around the entire image.
 
Then I added some touches of red and Twinkling Clouds Sparkle N Soft.  After cutting the image out with a Spellbinders’ die, I edged it with Fire Engine Red Glitter.  
 
I layered it on a white embossed background with a cute “belt” using black ribbon and a pop tab for a buckle. 

Head on over to the SNS Blog for all the challenge details and see some great samples from fellow designers, Karalee and Shona. 

Congratulations to Aurora Christina for winning the August Sketch Challenge!!
