Inspirational Card Sketch Challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone. The week is on the down swing. Can you tell I live for the weekends? LOL! Yesterday I had the most amazing day. In the morning a friend emailed me and told me to check the Inspirational Card Sketch blog and I found I had won last weeks sketch challenge with this card. I won three digital stamps from So my day was off to a wonderful start. Then in the afternoon, I got a notice that I had won a color challenge on Stamp TV. For that win I got a free Gina K stamp set of my choice. Here is my winning card! So Tuesday was the best day of my week!

But this is Wednesday and you want to see my latest card, right? Well, wait no longer. I used this week's Inspirational Sketch Challenge for this card. There's a wonderful prize with this sketch too.

This card uses the Gina K Lazy Days of Summer stamp set and the background paper from the summer stamp kit from Gina K. I had forgotten about these papers and I love the colors. After placing the papers according to the sketch I ran the background through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I pop dotted the images after punching them with a scalloped punch and added baby blue Stickles to the images and black Stickles to the capital letters. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

On to the rest of the week. Thanks for stopping by. Come back and see me soon.

Happy inking,
