Gettin' Sketchy With...

...Hand Stamped Sentiments #151!  Hooray, the new format at Hand Stamped Sentiments includes sketch challenges which are my favorite types of challenges.  Do be sure to check out all the cards made by the Design Team and then make one of your very own.  Once you're done add your creation to the blog for all of us to enjoy!

Again I have been working with some new stamps and accessories.  I embossed my Island Indigo card base with the Honeycomb TIEF which is a MUST have item.  Then I added paper strip ribbons cut from the Sycamore Street DSP.  My tag is stamped with the new Oh Hello stamp set and is embellished with a row of Basic Pearls, a piece of Victoria Ribbon, Linen Thread, and Itty Bitty Punch Pack reinforcer, and a larger Basic Pearl peeking through a Small Heart Punch window.  To keep in line with the sketch I included a strip of Flower Trim, another MUST have accessory from the Spring Catalog.

Don't forget that all this week there are blog candy opportunities at Create with Connie and Mary and free project tutorials for you to download.  Click over to learn more and have fun!
