Beate Weekend Sketch #43

I cannot believe it's Friday already. This week went by SO quickly! Here's my card for Beate's Weekend Sketch. I LOVE this background stamp from the Stampin' Up catalog. I love it because you don't have to color it in if you don't want to. It's great just stamped in one color for a quick card. I chose to use my Wonder Watercolor Crayons to color it in though. I added some Stickles too. The flower has a really pretty sparkle! I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but my favorite Stampin' Up color has always been Really Rust. I just LOVE it. I like a lot of the other colors too (In Colors and Earth Elements especially), but Really Rust is one of my easy choices since it just works for me. Be sure and check out what Beate, Cambria, Jenn, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo and Sharon have come up with for today's challenge. I'm sure they will all be beautiful!


Don't forget about the Prettie Pajama Party tonight at 8pm EST at Paper Pretties. . .three new stamps sets, three challenges and LOTS of fun! Hope to see you there! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- From the Garden, Full of Life (SU); Paper- Really Rust, Whisper White (SU) Cocoa (DCWV); Ink- Really Rust; Accessories- ticket corner punch, slit punch, Wonder Watercolor Crayons (SU), rust satin ribbon (May Arts), Stardust Stickles, Copper Stickles
