Stamp Off Sunshine Wishes Sketch

The ladies (Buffy and Susan) and I are back again to
share another challenge.   I think that we all enjoy sketch
challenges, so that is on the agenda for today.

This is a great sketch.  I enjoy mixing a little DSP with
some shapes.  And SU has some awesome shapes
available with their variety of framelits.

I really like the Sunshine Wishes Framelits on page 194.
They coordinate with the SunShine Sayings set on page 97,
but also stand well on their own.  In this example, I stamped
the heart framelit in two different colors, so that I
had a contrasting heart insert.

I used the DSP from the Neutrals pack on page 174.
The Smoky Slate coordinated well with the new
Dapper Denim In Color.  The Bless Your Heart sentiment 
comes from the Jar of Love set.  I colored White Perfect Accents 
from page 177 with a sharpie marker to get the 
coordinating dots.  The card base was embossed with the 
Happy Hearts Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
on page 195.

Now hop on over, to see what Buffy and Susan
did with this sketch challenge.  I know that you
will love their samples.

Textured Sunshine Sayings in Bermuda and Daffodil

This card was created with the Sunshine Sayings set (p 97)
and the coordinating Sunshine Wishes Thinlit dies on page 194.
This set has lots of stamps that can be used to create
texture on the background of your card.
I used the strip of hearts from the Everyday Jars Framelits
on page 192 to separate the image from the sentiment.

Flirty Pop of Paradise

This is a very quick card, made with the Pop of Paradise
card on page 85.  The flamingo is all the rage right now!
I know when I go to FL or Las Vegas, I can't take my
eyes off those crazy birds.  Their colors and movements
defy imagination.  It always seems like they know that
they are very cool.

Pop of Paradise Clear-Mount Stamp Set
I used a new in-color, Flirty Flamingo, with black as an accent,
to create a strong color contrast.  The Thank You banner
was cut out with the Bunch of Banners on page 193.

Of course a flamingo can't go anywhere without a bit of
ribbon, so I added some 3/8 inch Ruched Flirty Flamingo
Ribbon from page 178.
