Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge #7

Can you believe it has already been 7 weeks since I started the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! I am so enjoying seeing all the samples that are being made with on sketch. I truly believe that using challenges will help even the most seasoned stampers to think outside of the box while helping new stampers come up with their own style and have a starting point. So no matter where you are in your stamping these sketches are for you! Thanks for all the people that have been playing along each week -- great job. Now on to this weeks sketch.......




My card is a pretty simple one but I am pretty happy with it. The colors are Blue Bayou and Bashful Blue along with Whisper White for accents. The one of a kind strip stamp is from Hero Arts. It is a great set with four different saying done in the same style. I thought it would be a fun way to bring in the strips that are on the sketch. the flower is from the SAB set Friendship Blooms which I was not going to get because it is "another flower" set but I am soooo glad I did, it is a great set--so fun. I cut and embossed the squares with my Nestibillites dies. The flowers are cut out and the white square and flower are popped up. I added a row of paper piercing on both the top and bottom. The burst eyelets have been in my stash for more than a year and have no packaging so I have no idea, sorry.




Here are the other talented artists and their samples for your viewing pleasure.........

Thanks for another fun sketch! Yours turned out great - love the stamped images in place of the strips of paper.

AAAAh! Rub ons! Nice! Great card!

Claudia said...

Your card turned out wonderful. I just love the colors AND the wheel behind the image layers instead another layer of paper. Great idea!

I really like this sketch but had a hard time coming up with something that would work with it. This is what I came up with though. http://terrbear38.blogspot.com/2008/03/mary-jos-lunchtime-sketch-week-7.html I really like what you did with it.

LOVE this sketch. I'll be using it again!!

I know I am soooo late this week, I started this Friday, finished last night but had to wait for the daylight to get a good photo. Delay, delay, delay. But anyway, here's mine - looking forward to today's sketch too!
