Paper Sweeties Sketch Challenge #8 Happy Birthday!

If you love the Paper Sweeties this is the week for you!  We are starting off the month with the latest sketch challenge - and your chance to win a few sets of Paper Sweeties to add to your collection!  Once  a month there is a new sketch to play with.  Just link up your designs at the Paper Sweeties Blog!  It's a great way to see other creative ways to use your stamps - or maybe fall in love with a few new favorites.  

I thought this sketch was lots of fun because of the stripes across the bottom.  I really enjoyed mixing and matching different patterns and papers - and it is a great way to use up some leftover scraps as well!  I'm feeling light and summery lately - so you can expect more bright colors and flowers!  To dress up the bottom half of the card I added some swirls of gems, a bow and a pre made crochet flower. Here's what I came up with..... 

Would you like to see what the rest of the design team made for this challenge?  Check out their blogs!  Just click on their names!

Ahhh... .but there is more... we will be previewing the June release early this month (June 2-5) so that you have more time to use them for June themed projects.  I know .... what are they right?  Can't tell ya!  You will have to come back tomorrow and I promise to dish all about them!!
