Weekend Sketch Challenge

I spent some time this evening trying out Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I'm so glad she's back stamping-she's such an inspiration!!! I knew I wanted to try it as soon as I saw it posted!

Here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with:

I think it's another that's going to need to grow on me! I did break into another pack of new DP-the Bali Breeze. That's a record for me-usually they sit untouched on my shelf! Love the colors! But not sure I like the overall look. I also tried another new item that we have in the catty-Rub-Ons! I've never used them and I do like how easy they are to use! They seem to me though, to go against the whole concept of stamping! But, some of the samples in the new catty are awesome and I'm sure we'll see some great creations using them from all the wonderful stampers out there!

I started with a card base of Whisper White in 5-1/4 square. I needed to try that out with this sketch. Not sure I've ever done a square one before, but this sketch seemed to ask for it! I added a layer of the Teal print DP, then a strip of Pumpkin Pie DP tied with Purely Pomegranate double stitched ribbon. The white layer is also DP with added rub-ons. I stared at this for about an hour trying to see what I liked! Finally settled here. The scallop punch Purely Pomegranate is also layered with DP and has rub-ons added. They are quick and easy to use! I'm anxious to try out the white ones also. Click here for the catty page that features the styles we have available. Fun Fun!!

Hope you've all had a great weekend. I for one am not ready for a whole week of work starting tomorrow! It's gonna be a long one after the last few short weeks!
