A Beautiful Thank You - Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge - Come play!

We are starting out a new month of sketches over at Skipping Stones Design and that is just fun!  The absolutely fabulous Kazan Clark is our Guest Sketch Artist and she has started us out with a fabulous one!  You can check out the sketch itself over on the blog, but I want to show you the card I created using it!  Seriously...I love this card...and the sketch totally drove me to it!


SSD #114 - Thank You


Yes, as you can see, my obsession with grey has continued.  What do you want me to do about it?  I love it.  It's a fabulous color and it goes SO well with SO many other fabulous colors!  Maybe I should do an official 'study in grey' for a week or something here on the blog...that might be fun..a new project combining grey with another color each day...hmmmm.....thinking...thinking....we shall see.  BUT...for now, just check out how awesome that red and grey combo is?  I love it.  *sigh*  Colors are pretty.  Just say'n.


Thank You (detail)


I pulled out a couple of sets for this one.  That gorgeous butterfly is from the Garden Kiss Stamp Set.  I kissed the dots onto the solid butterfly to create subtle texture and then did second generation stamping to keep it nice and light and delicate looking.  The sentiment actually comes from the super fun Birthday Donuts set!  It was perfect!


Thank you (detail 2)


That gorgeous ribbon is none other than May Arts!  Isn't it so pretty?  I love that ribbon!

So...now I'm wondering why you are still here!  (HA!  I just typed wonderfing!  LOL!  That's a funny word.  I think I need to use it.  Just say'n.)  But, seriously....  don't you just want to run and make something fabulous with this sketch?  I know you do!  So do it! You could win free stamps!  Need more inspiration?  Check out what our guest designers and Stamp Tramps have created!
