Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge: Patterned Paper!



You do it. I do it. We ALL do it. And we all know it.

That's right... We ALL hoard our patterned paper! We are afraid of not having our papers once we use them! And we, therefore, all need that push to get us to share the patterned joy with others through our handmade cards! Today is another installment of the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge, and we want you to USE that patterned paper! The lovely Lee Murphy has created another sketch for us, and what a perfect sketch it is for using your favorite papers!

I created an anniversary card for some friends. We have LOTS of anniversaries coming up in June! The die cut pieces are all quite glittery in real life, but it's VERY hard for me to capture on a rainy day here! I created a shimmery, textured-looking background on the Going Gray cardstock by spritzing my brand new Shimmerz Spritz in Baby's Breath all over it! Gorgeous! Boy, is it ever shimmery! I love that you can even see the shimmer in the photograph!!

Paper: Going Gray, Crate Papers Mia - Sparkle, Water Lilies, and Whirl. Ink: Cat's Eye Wisteria (for inking the LOVE letters...ON SALE THIS WEEK!), White Craft (for inking the edge of the butterfly). Accessories: Crate Paper Mia Glitter Die Cuts, Shimmerz Spritz - Baby's Breath, Basic Grey Piper Micro Chip ABC's - White Chocolate


The Details:
**Use the sketch provided and think PATTERNED PAPER!

**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC022.

**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on this post by Sunday, May 31, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).

**PRIZE ~ One 6x6 or 8x8 Paper Pad!(Winner is chosen randomly from all participants.)

Don't forget about our ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION right here on Monday! Be here for games, prizes, and sales!! Also, check out THIS POST to see how you can win a prize NOW!

I promised I'd have a go lol!
Got a little lost in the shape of my card (it was too small for all the stuff I was trying to put on it!) but at least I've had a go!

Here's my effort.... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1362439?cat=500&ppuser=152807

Well...I usually stick pretty close to the original sketch. Not so much this time. I don't have anything that really resembles the photo corners and I was too chicken to try to cut them freehand. So I subbed the ovals for the photo corners and replaced the oval with a smattering of hearts! Enough apologizing and blah-blah, here it is!

Lee (LuvLee on SCS) said...

Ohhhh this is soooo gorgeous Mandy!!! I love the lettering so you can really see all the fabulous dp!!!
