Hello, Lovely Sketch

Hand Stamped Sentiments has the COOLEST sketch challenge up for this week and next.  That's right you have two weeks to design a card featuring this AWESOMELY fun sketch.  The best thing about sketches, and especially this one, is I never EVER would have come up with this look without the sketch as a MOTIVATOR.

I started by grabbing my Apothecary Accents Framelits and Epic Day This and That DSP.  From there I decided to lay the cut pieces of DSP on Pool Party card stock which I embossed with a Honeycomb TEIF.  In keeping with the sketch I stamped a two layer tag with the "thank you" greeting from Hello, Lovely on Soft Sky card stock.  I just love that new set and all the possibilities.  To finish it all up I tied a shoestring bow with Basic Grey Stitched ribbon and flicked splatters and specs with an Aqua Painter.

If you have a minute or two pop on over to Hand Stamped Sentiments and check out what the Design Team has created all being inspired by this sketch.
