Stella Ladybug

I was blog surfing and followed a link from Beate's blog to find Sketch This: Cards! Since I LOVE doing sketch challenges, I thought I'd give this a try. It looks like card sketches are posted every Tuesday. Great! Another place to visit for inspiration when my brain just doesn't feel like thinking! From looking at past sketches, they are all very different. . .especially different from my normal style of layout. I decided to pull out my Basic Grey Stella Ruby pad. I haven't used that for a while. I got this ladybug stamp at Joann's for $1 a little while back and this is the first time I've used it. I thought that since it was "sketchy" and not too cutesy, it might go well with the look of the Stella Ruby papers. I think I like it. I can't decide yet! :) The friend sentiment is from my Three For You punch box. Oh, and the little circle at the top left of the card is sort of like a paperclip. I used the slit punch on a piece of the red paper, then punched around it with a circle punch, making a sort of paperclip if that makes sense. I added the May Arts ribbon on top for a little embellishment. If you're ever looking for a new sketch, try Sketch This! I know I'll visit regularly! SUPPLIES USED: Stamp- Ladybug $1 stamp, sentiment from Three For You punch box; Paper- Basic Grey Stella Ruby, DCWV dark brown; Ink- VersaMagic in Jumbo Java; Accessories- slit punch, circle punch, May Arts ribbon, dimensionals.
