A new Stampavie PCP Sketch Challenge -

Yes there is a new Paper Craft Planet Stampavie Sketch Challenge, and this one is going to run for two weeks! So there is plenty of time to join in. And what is the prize you ask? Again Heidi is going to let you decide... you pick any stamp from the Stampavie Collection and she will add a baggie full of embellishments to make your cards with.

Ok, so here is the sketch.. I hope you like it, I have been trying out a different software to make my computer sketches. I am really new at computer sketches anyway, but the couple I have done seemed flat - so I played with a Scrapbook program and made this one. At least it isn't flat looking!
Even though I can't win the prize I just had to make a card with the sketch. I pulled out one of my new Sarah Kay images "First Kiss", just love this one, that hat is so fun to color. I used my Copics and Sakura Souffle pens, then high lighted with white gel pen.
I then found two pattern papers from K&Company to use to follow my sketch, and a light brown card stock for the base and image mat.
I inked the edges of all of the pieces of paper, then sewed down everything with a straight stitch.. I went random with this and you know that was more stressful than going as straight! I like how it came out but man, my palms were sweating hoping I didn't really mess up my card.
For the base of the card, I used my Crop-a-dile and the large copper eyelets that came in the box and spaced them across the bottom, then ran a small satin ribbon through the holes meeting and tying into a bow.
The sentiment is from a local stamp company.
So why don't you give the sketch a try - all you have to do is load it into the PCP photo gallery and then comment on the Stampavie Group that you did so to qualify.
Hubby is off today - between him, my MIL and I we have a long list of errands and to do's - and I bet they are both already tapping their toes wondering if I am ready yet - Ahhh nope still in my jammies - so I better get going! Hope you have a great Monday and get some time to get inky!
HUGS and-

This is a great card. I love the bonnet on this girl and your lettering is so cute. It must be free-hand as I haven't seen that stamp set! Looks like "shades of decorative painting" to me....did you used to do that, too? Thanks for sharing. I hope the donkeys are all doing good and enjoying our Fall! Linda Crowder
