Skipping Stones Design Sketch 41

September 7, 2010

For the month of September, I am one of the guest designers for Skipping Stones Design...a wonderful stamp company!  Each week I will have a card based on a sketch to share with you!  And without further is my card:
"Live & Laugh& Love..." supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: GCD Studios
Paper Frill: Doodlebug Designs
Stamps: Skipping Stones Design (Timeless Textures, Garden Stamp Kiss sets) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Chalk: creamy brown & Pigment: robin's egg) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Flowers: Recollections
Jewels: Prima
Pearls: Kaiser Craft

Instructions:  Ink the edges of a floral paper block, and adhere to the front of a white card base.  Ink the edges of a flourish paper strip and adhere to the front.  Stamp the damask pattern to a white cardstock block and ink the edges.  Adhere blue paper frill to the block, and then tie ribbon around the seam.  Accent the middle of the bow with brown paper flowers.  Add the rub-on sentiment to the bottom, and adhere the entire block to the front.  Stamp the butterfly to white cardstock, and cut out.  Adhere it to the front of the card, and accent the middle with pearls.  Give it a flight pattern with jewel flourishes.  

This is the fabulous sketch, created by the talented Ashley Cannon Newell.  Such a fabulous sketch!! 
Be sure to head on over to Skipping Stones Design to see what the other design team and guest designers did with the sketch as well!  Be sure to participate as well....the sketch is a fabulous one to work with!! ♥♥♥
