Limelight Sketch Challenge #4



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! Yay!!

This sketch and product challenge will feature ribbon from Limelight! As you'll notice in the sketch there are 4 panels behind the main circle, and they should be ribbon! There are so many gorgeous ribbons over at Limelight, that it should be tough to pick just four! Of course, use any ribbons you have on hand, too! ;)

My card uses the Cupcakes A La Yummy stamp set from Unity Stamp Company. How cute, huh?? I colored the frosting with my Copics and paper pieced the cupcake liner with a scrap of Pebbles, Inc. patterned paper (used the same line of paper for the background). The frosting is coated in Cotton Candy Stickles, and there's a Red Kaisercraft Rhinestone serving as a cherry. The ribbon behind the main image is Fuchsia with White Stripes Grosgrain Ribbon by May Arts. The card base is Pretty Pink Doublemates. Love that stuff! The texture rocks, and the two coordinating sides makes for easy matching. This is such a fun, simple sketch, and I had lots of fun playing with it. I have a couple more cards to finish up using this sketch. I'll be posting those over the next couple of days.

Now it is your turn! I will choose one of the submissions (randomly!) to win a ten-yard assortment of ribbon from Limelight Papercrafts! And included will be some of the new TULLE RIBBON we received this week! 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 21, at midnight to be eligible for the prize. If you upload to SCS please use keyword: LLPC004 so we can all view your creations!

Be sure to click on the design team links on my sidebar to see the wonderful creations they came up with! :)

What a great way to use ribbon. I mostly just take it out of the HUGE box and stroke it and put it back LOL - but you have inspired me to actually use some :)

This was a great sketch. I saw it at Katie's blog this am and thought it would be great with my Charley horse stamp. I used CTMH papers, as I have not ordered yet from Limelight, but you can see it here if you want
