Stampin Royalty Challenge 90 September 21, 2011 - Trickster
I've been looking for a some new sketch challenges to participate in and I found this one listed on a blog I visit. This is the Stampin' Royalty Sketch Challenge - there is a new one every Wednesday. If you want to play along their address is http://stampinroyalty.blogspot.com/. I know that October will be here before I know it and I'm really behind making cards to send to friends and family. I love getting cards for holidays and they are a great way to add a bit of festivity to a room. I hang Christmas greetings as a garland, and I place others on shelves around the house - even in my kitchen so I can see them every day. I found this neat vintage cat stamp with the SMILE sentiment in the dollar bin at Joann's. Who says you have to spend alot of money to make a great card? I used only a small portion of one 12" x 12" sheet of patterned paper. I used a different dollar stamp for the light purple background I stamped behind the cat. I used buttons and ribbon that I already had on hand. The only thing new I used on this one is the Spellbinders Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents. I'm lovin' all the new dies - and I'm getting what I can afford one at a time.
