Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge 129

Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend (for those of you in the US)!  We just got back home from watching some of the most beautiful fireworks I have seen in a while.  What a fabulous show our town put on tonight.

This week's sketch is a pretty easy one--at least I think it is and it would be a great sketch to use those designer paper scraps.  Here is the sketch...

And my sample...

As usual I combined my sketch challenge card with the new Latenightstampers challenge. This week we have a inspiration challenge!  Here is the photo we are using for our inspiration.

I was inspired by the colors and the stripes.  I think this is more of a Kiwi Kiss green but since I needed to be 100% current products for the LNS challenge I went with Old Olive.  I am still happy with the results.  Lots of different sets were used to get the look I wanted.

Stamps: builder wheels-candle crazy and so many stars, Itty Bitty Bits, Birthday Bliss and All Holidays
Paper: Pacific Point, Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Pacific Point, Basic Black
Other: circle punch, builder wheel, scallop circle punch, scallop edge punch

Hope you can play along this week!  I know everyone has been so busy but stamping is the best form of stress release I know and busy usually brings stress.  Hope to see your creation soon.

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
