Sketch Challenge 108

This week's Saturday Sketch Challenge over at Stamping 411 definitely came at the right time as I was needing to make a birthday card for a friend's daughter and inspiration hadn't struck yet! And, because this sketch is ULTRA simple (as stated on their blog), I knew it would be the perfect sketch to whip out quickly. Once I saw the sketch, I got to work!

Here is the sketch...


And here is my take on it...


Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette (retired), Real Red
Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet, Think Happy Thoughts (dotted circle), On Your Birthday (sentiment)
Ink: Real Red, Chocolate Chip (images colored in with watercolor pencils)
Accessories: dimensionals (to pop up cupcakes), red eyelets (non-SU!)
Tools: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, ticket punch

**********************************************

These next two are not officially part of the sketch, but looking through my card creations, I realized they pretty closely fit the bill.

you can find the supplies used with this card here


This next card, I created for my first ever Stampin' Up! card swap when I first joined at the end of March.


Paper:
Whisper White, Real Red
, Green Galore
Stamp Sets: Short & Sweet
Ink: Chocolate Chip (images colored in with watercolor pencils)
Accessories: dimensionals (to pop up cupcakes), Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon
Tools: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, scallop edge punch


I didn't do a lot of card making this last week (the weather was too nice to stay indoors), but I have a lot of cards I've created in the last few weeks that I've been wanting to share. Hopefully I'll get some time to share those soon!

My new catalog kick-off will be happening this Tuesday and I'm so excited for my guests to make their free card (I love the color combo I chose!) and to look through the new catalog.
