Sketch 35: Patterned Paper


Happy Thursday, and HAPPY THANKSGIVING, friends! :) I am thankful today for so many things... My wonderful husband and two beautiful children, my God and Savior, and good friends...and that includes YOU! I am thankful for each of my "online" friends. 'Cuz we all know we're real friends, too. ;)

Welcome to not only another Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge, but also another CELEBRITY sketch! Today's sketch is brought to us by none other than the super-sweet and super-talented DAWN MCVEY! If anyone is not familiar with Dawn, you MUST check her out! Her creations are always breathtakingly perfect, and she is such a sweet, happy, positive person.

Here's Dawn's sketch, and the original card that inspired it:


Dawn created TWO MORE cards using the Nook and Pantry line from Basic Grey for this challenge... Check for details on HER BLOG!


And now for a few details about my card! I wanted to use some of my favorite Papertrey Ink products since Dawn is one of the design team members for PTI! I started with an Aqua Mist base and layered on Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers. The rub-ons are both from the same Eskimo Kisses line. I used some Moss Silk Ribbon (LOVE this stuff!) and added interest with an Aqua Mist button and some linen thread.

Now it is your turn! I cannot wait, as always, to see what you come up with!

The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate your favorite PATTERNED PAPER!!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC035.

**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on the challenge post
by Sunday, November 29, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).
**PRIZE ~ One lucky winner will receive a 6x6 Basic Grey Wisteria Paper Pad!
