SKETCH 52: RHINESTONES!


Happy Thursday!! I'm popping in with another Sketch and Product Challenge for you! And I am so excited that we are working with rhinestones and gems this week! It really is a challenge for me not to add rhinestones to whatever I am working on! And I LOVE these soft pink colored rhinestones I'm featuring today. Pink is ALWAYS a good thing. :)

My card base is kraft, but it is completely covered by various papers from my Sugar Rush paper pad. These papers just make me happy. :) I added the "stitching" by stamping the stitch from this month's Unity Stampin' Store Kit, Key to Joy & The Right Words (DON'T MISS OUT! It's only $25 at Limelight right now!). I cut the white circle out and used a funky flower stamp from the April Unity kit, Super Sweet & Stuck on You in Sweet Blush and Simply Chartreuse inks. I used a rub-on from the Basic Grey Greetings rub-ons for my sentiments. This is seriously the BEST set of sentiments! So fun and versatile! :) And...of course...I used lots of Soft Pink Rhinestones!!

What will YOU come up with??

The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate some RHINESTONES or GEMS!!
**Keyword for SCS upload is LLPC052.
**Post a comment with a link to your card right here on the challenge post by Sunday, July 25, at midnight (or really just before winner is drawn Monday!).

OK, and my son (7) insisted on giving this a try, too. He had to go with a much simplified version. I hope that's OK. Here's his:
