Wednesday Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers

My son's girlfriend's birthday is coming up and I needed to make a card for her today. I will be brining our gift to her to our son's place tonight and I hadn't gotten around to making a card yet. Fortunately it was Wednesday and that means it's Sketch Challenge day over at SplitCoastStampers. I really hate to miss the Sketch Challenge. I've been doing them for a couple of years now (I think it's been that long). I started doing them when they were at #126. I've missed a few in there now and then but not too many!!! It's just fun to play with different layouts.

I used a Penny Black stamp I had. I thought this little guy was SO cute. I will be cleaning house here in the next few days and this stamp plus others will be found in my store. I just have too many and I need the space.

The striped paper is a piece of the decorative paper I made that I had left over from the altered gum package I posted yesterday. It was such fun paper to make!!!

The words here were printed out on the oomputer onto Whisper White card stock. Any other white card stock didn't give me a crips look like this does. I printed out a full sheet of them (18) so I'm set with birthday greetings for a while. As long as I remember where I left the pieces!!!

On the Pretty in Pink background piece I used the Stampin' Up! "Cupcakes" wheel and Pretty in Pink ink. I sponges all the edges on every piece in Pretty in Pink. I added a few pearl Dew Drops and it ws done!!!

This layout was a lot of fun to play with!!!

If you have the time go to SplitCoastStampers and give this sketch a try!!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
