Hello!  Welcome to Wednesday, folks!  This week's Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is a SKETCH challenge!  Yup... we give you the layout, and you make magic happen with it!  The design team is using Jane's Doodles and/or Authentique products this week, so if you have those, we'd love to see them, but you don't have to use them if you don't.  Use what you've got, folks!

Here is the sketch that Heather created for us this week:

And here is the card that I came up with using it!

Sparkling Like a Star

I used the Authentique Glistening Collection and I LOVE IT!!!!  The colors are so pretty in this collection and the journaling card combined with the great patterns made it SO easy to come up with a fun card design!  I added a bit of sparkle on the journaling card by tracing over some parts with the Wink of Stella glitter brush.  I do so love that thing.  I really do.

Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog to check out the awesome inspiration for today!  I think you will enjoy seeing the various ways the team used the sketch!  It is so fun to see just how DIFFERENT the designs can turn out using the same basic template!  YAY!

One lucky participant is going to win a $50 Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store!  Yup.  That's an awesome prize.  For reals, folks.  So...what are you doing here?  Go make it happen, dudes!
