Card Patterns Sketch 135 - October 1, 2011- Hey Girlfriend!

  Hi and welcome to another Card Patterns sketch challenge!  Are you playing along?  All the details are at   http://cardpatterns.blogspot.com/.  This week one random winner will receive a $20 gift certificate for Paper Makeup Stamps.  Did you hear I won the Sketch 134 and get to be the guest designer for Sketch 137?  Neat huh?  I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.

I bought a cute set of 3 girls stamps by Hero Arts about 6 months ago.  They just made me smile so I brought them home and put them on display on a shelf in my crafty room.   I have a few shelves that put all my little treasures on - my Hello Kitty and Choco Kitty Pez dispensers, some favorite stamps, and little treat boxes I've decorated.  
I've been practicing my Copic blending skills and thought why not put a little color on these babes.  I thought this would be a cute card to send to a girlfriend that moved to Florida that I haven't talked to for a while. 


I punched the lacy border in light purple and put a piece of darker purple behind it so you could see the detail better.  I didn't have a stamp with a sentiment I wanted to use so I just printed one with purple ink in Word.  For the tag I just took a rectangle die, cut out the sentiment and punched a hole for the string.

I love how the card turned out and those girls still make me smile.  I bet you have a few new stamps that haven't been kissed by ink yet.  Dust 'em off and see what you can do with them!
