Limelight Sketch 30: Patterned Paper!


Happy Thursday, everyone! Welcome to another round of the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge! Limelight Papercrafts is the home of SEVERAL new patterned paper lines, so we thought it would only be fitting that we use patterned paper as the focus for our sketch this week! :) This week, we have a little something SNEAKY up our sleeves for you! An extra HIDDEN prize!! Be sure to check out each of my wonderful DT members' blogs because ONE of them contains an additional prize that you can be entered to win JUST by leaving a comment! What's the prize, you ask? Great question, my friends. ;) One lucky commenter will win the new Basic Grey Indian Summer Pops! Just surf around the following blogs...you'll know it when you get to the blog with the prize!

For my card, I chose to use the NEW Basic Grey Indian Summer papers. Boy, are they gorgeous! Trust me, if you love fall, this captures the feelings inspired by fall perfectly!! For my card base, I used the new SU In Color Soft Suede (the textured cardstock). I layered on the Indian Summer for both of my patterned paper pieces. I also sprayed on a little Tuscan Sun Shimmerz Spritz to the large background piece of patterned paper to give a subtle gold shimmer to my card. You cannot tell because the strips are so thin, but the paper that the sentiment is on is actually a fall leaf pattern! Like this:

There are several colors of that beautiful pattern in the 6x6 paper pad! Love that. For the focal image, I used my *favorite* thing from this Basic Grey release (okay, ONE of my favorites!! LOL!)... The felt tree from the Indian Summer Woolies! Isn't it totally gorgeous? Even Drew (my husband) was wowed by it! The sentiment, which I embossed with Gold EP, comes from the Unity Store Kit, Everything Extraordinary. What a fabulous set! One thing Angela really know how to do well (although she does seem to do EVERYTHING well!) is find the best quotes for her stamps! This one is so perfect... "In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary"! Next to each part of the sentiment, I added a single Bronze Rhinestone to complete the sketch and add more warmth.

Okay, now it's your turn...
