Seize The Sketch #25

I was playing in my craft room last night and made this quick and easy card using some new goodies from Stampin' Up! and My Favorite Things as well as the sketch from Seize The Sketch. Love how fun this sketch is!

I realised after I finished my card that I got the layout a little wrong (I was working from a hand drawn draft of the sketch) but I didn't want to pull it apart and start again.


Supplies:
Stamps: My Favorite Things
Cardstock and Ink: Stampin' Up! 
Other: Kaiser rhinestones, PTI wave die.

Just Add Ink #222 - Colour Challenge

Hello and happy Friday!

I hope that you have had a wonderful week. I have just popped in to share the latest challenge with you from the Just Add Ink blog.  This week we have a great colour challenge for you to play with and we hope you will join us! These are the colours.

I didn't have the blushing bride so went with Pink Pirouette instead.


I have been struggling a lot lately with my crafty motivation. Life has been so busy that I have not had much time to get into my craft room and when I have, I can sit there for hours and nothing comes to me. I am hoping this passes soon as I am really missing my regular crafting!  But I guess that is what these challenges are for right? to motivate us.  So along with the gorgeous colour challenge this week I also used a fun sketch from last week's challenge over at Clean & Simple Stamping. It is too late to share this card over there as the challenge has closed, but it was a great starting point for me to put this card together.




All of the products used on my card this week are from Stampin' Up!
