My Stampavie PCP Sketch Challenge Card

Even though I can't win the prize for the Paper Craft Planet Stampavie Sketch Challenge, I really wanted to make a card with the sketch. It was also a great chance to show off one of the new Sarah Kay Stamps that are just coming out.
This is "Time for Apple Pie" mmmmmmmmm -
I think she is just precious, I love that basket.
For my cards I chose pattern papers from K&Company, don't they have a vintage country feel, and perfect for the Sarah Kay.
I followed the sketch with three different papers, and cut to follow the layout. I cut my image, which is colored with my Copics, with my Nestibilities Oval, matted with the larger size cut with one of the pattern papers.
All of my papers are inked with brown ink. and corners are all rounded. The base is a light kraft paper card stock. I used three red brads and jewelry spacers for the dots. Country blue ribbon for the corner bands. Then I gel pen stitched the edge of the card. The sentiment if from My Favorite Things. A simple, country feeling card. I hope you will give the sketch a try, the load your card into the PCP Photo Gallery with the tag code SSC1 ... the prize will be drawn for THIS WEDNESDAY the 26th. So not much time left -
Today is MIL shopping day - (hubby took off work to stay home with Darlene - although she really doesn't look like she is interested in having a baby). We are going to run all our errands and then hit the grocery store to pick up all the food for Thanksgiving! I am so sure it will be a mad house.
Hope you have a great Monday and have some fun time to get inky -- try the sketch! Any Stampavie image can be used!
HUGS and-
