Keesh's Sketch Challenge #20

Wow, two posts in one day. This getting up early makes me quite constructive LOL. I had a play with Keesh's latest sketch challenge. I used some of the lovely products out of the new Autumn-Winter mini (see this post for more details of mini cat). This was a lovely sketch.

I brought out my new Rich Razzleberry CS and combined it with Orchid Opulence CS. I used the new Cottage Wall DSP (love it!) and the beautiful Vintage Vogue stamp set. I also had a play with my new Sizzlits 'Little Leaves' and "Lots of Tags" Dies for the Big Shot. They are exclusive to Stampin' Up! and so cute. The ribbon is Rich Razzleberry and is plain on the reverse side (which maybe I should've used).

Here is my card:

I saw the idea for the ribbon trim on this blog and have been wanting to try it (just realised I've also used the same paper and stamps, didn't mean to, just remembered the ribbon detail from seeing it a few weeks ago). This is probably the happiest I've been with a sketch challenge card. Just love these colours & stamps.

Must go & do something, have to work tonight so I hope the roofing guy finishes in time for me to have a nap, otherwise I'll be up for about 26 hours (uugh).

Catch ya,
Love Fi xox

Ooohhh! Ok, I'm not posting my card now, after seeing yours!!! I ADORE it! I haven't been too fussed about that little leaves die, but it looks amazing here. I also love how you have coloured that little border stamp. And your ribbon! Oh la LAAAA!

Oooooh... loving the multi-colour border image. Will sooooo have to try that idea! One day I will stamp again! So busy blogging and blog hopping ... I get no stamping done! Somehow that balance is just not right! Hugs, Andrea xxx

Lovely, Fi - and I think the dotty side of the ribbon looks fab! I also love your idea for your birthday invitations - they will be beautiful! And don't feel bad, some of us need more than one preorder :) Lol! Hope you're having a blessed Easter xx
