Monday's Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #6

It's that time again! Time for the lunchtime sketch challenge. I really like this layout although I think it is a bit intimidating at first glance. I will be making another one with it soon.


I actually did a card with NO STAMPING! Got to love these new rub ons. I was a hard sell for them at first because I was thinking why? Why not just buy a stamp and do it any color and over and over again. But did you notice how wonderful these images stand out and the fact that there is no Whisper White of Vanilla card stock! Those images really pop on the Chocolate Chip card stock. Plus you can use them on so many other things. I have even seen them on people's nails for nail art, mirrors, windows, glass, candles, computer mouse and monitor, refrigerators, the list is endless and I am sold!



My card is using the retired Friends and Flowers Simply Scrappin Kit along with the SAB Love and Happiness rub ons and the Eastern Elegance rub ons. I also added some faux pearls to the mix. Hope you like it. And now check out these other fabulous samples..........

Once again your sketch and card are Marvy.
BTW Belated Happy Birthday! I got a cake like that once too. It was a total surprise the kids made it with the sitter while hubby and I were out to dinner. We are indeed blessed by our families.
Here's my card for this week:
