Limelight Sketch Challenge #3



Every second Thursday, the wonderful Brandi Parshley introduces a fun new sketch challenge and product focus for us to play with! And today is Thursday! Hooray!!

With a major holiday this week and the kids going back to preschool/school/college, plus all the fall activities and sports, it's hard to find time to stamp! The name of the game this week is K.I.S.S.... Keep It Simple Stamper! (Haha...I got the "Stamper" part of KISS from Brandi, and it made me smile!)

This week's product challenge is to use bling, now how easy is that?! Any kind of bling will do! Glitter, stickles, fibers, rhinestones, pearls.... ANY kind of bling!

My card uses the Pebbles, Inc. Spooky line. I LOVE this line!! It is so fun and easy to work with! And with the super-cute cardstock stickers, it was a cinch to put this together. I also used a few of the Prima Sprites 2 in Black that we just got in stock for a cute layered embellishment. :) I really love this card! And did you noticed that I did NOT use ANY glitter at all! I used rhinestones and a brad for the bling! :) And I still like the card...hahaha! I loved this sketch so much that I have another one halfway done! Be sure to play along with this one!!

Now it is your turn! I will choose one of the submissions (randomly!) to win a 20% off discount code to use at Limelight Papercrafts! Enter your card by submitting a comment and a link to your card or online gallery on this post. All entries must be submitted by Sunday, September 7, at midnight to be eligible for the prize. If you upload to SCS please use keyword: LLPC003 so we can all view your creations!

Stamps: Rough Edges Alphabet. Paper: Marigold Morning, Spooky Stripes/Orange Dots paper, Old Olive. Ink: Old Olive. Accessories: Spooky Stickers, Black Prima Sprites 2, Orange MM Brad, Black Kaisercraft Rhinestones, Ticket Corner Punch, Foam Tape.

I wasn't going to post this because it is so far off from the sketch, but I do tell you in all honesty that I tried, really I did,but for some reason I couldn't make this work for me. I love how this card turned out, but if it doesn't qualify for the drawing that is okay too. Here it is, I just thought since I worked so hard on this that I'd share it anyway. Your stuff is fabulous BTW! http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1046135?cat=500&ppuser=45090
