A New Sketch Challenge Site (and a card share!)

Happy Sunday! I was fortunate enough to get to scrap some yesterday and I am already ready to share them with you! Wow, right? I usually wait a couple of days before FINALLY taking pictures of my projects and posting them! LOL

First, I wanted to share a new sketch challenge website. It's called Let's Get Sketchy! Here is their first "mini challenge" sketch. (you can find the link to the challenge under the picture of the sketch.) I absolutely LOVED the pennant flags on the right side of the layout and I just knew I wanted to use this sketch for a layout.

About the layout... I dug out some of some older Cosmo Cricket papers from the "Hey Sugar" valentine line. I am very happy with the outcome of this layout- don't you love it when you make a layout you think is your favorite EVER then you make another one that you like even better? Well, this one's my new favorite. I would also like to mention that my friend Mary Lou from ClubCK made those beautiful crocheted flowers I used on this layout. I wasn't too sure about the color of them when I first received them, but when I was making this layout, I discovered that the off-white matched great with this paper. 

Also, this layout is for the Frosted Designs challenge to use the word "LOVE" on your layout. Laura really loves our baby goats. :) I thought this picture was precious.


You can find the sketch here.
The Frosted Designs challenge is here.

Thanks for the awesome inspiration, Let's Get Sketchy!

I have a card to share with you too! This card is for the Moxie Fab challenge to use diecuts on your project. I used diecuts to make the background of this card-- I temporarily glued some dieuts onto my cardstock and misted over them. (I didn't like the colors of the diecuts, so that's why I used them as a mask; I'm not a purple girl.) Then I traced each shape with a Stampin' Up! marker. I also used diecuts to make my flower and label. What fun die-cuts can be! I never knew they would be so fun to use! :P Now I just need to use my Cuttlebug and Cricut more...

Such a sweet layout and picture. Your banners are so cool and your stitching and twine. I really like the crocheted flowers to add texture. The card is really pretty too. I can't believe how good your misting turned out and that's a great layered flower. Nice work!

The LO with the notched tails on the strips is lovely. the little flowers scattered over it really give it such a gentle touch.
