SKETCH 67: STRING!


Hi, everyone! Welcome to another Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge! Hope you're ready for a FUN sketch to play along with! We are using any kind of STRING with this week's sketch, so be sure to pull out your favorite string, twine, etc. from your stash as you create!


We have something fun planned this week for the prize... Of course you all know of super-talented DT member Lynn Miller, right??? (If not...*gasp!*....run, don't walk to check out her blog!) Our prize for the week is one of her faves... The Webster's Pages Vellum and Die Cut Kit! (Hint: If you'd like to purchase this kit...there is only ONE left for sale in the store... so win it here, or buy it FAST!)

I created this uber-sweet cotton candy pink card with a certain little girl in mind. Nope, not my little Katy (although those of you who know her know that she is a little ball of pinkaliciousness in herself!). We are attending my cousin's sweet little girl's first birthday party this weekend, and I thought this would be the perfect card. :) Don't ya think? My twine was kept minimal because I just LOVE the look of twine tied into a bow on a button! Eek!

I incorporated this week's Make It Monday challenge from PTI as well. The challenge was to use a strip of vellum with the sentiment on it, and this sketch was just asking for it! If you are planning on making a card for this PTI challenge, maybe try our sketch, too? ;)

Stamps: Make a Wish
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Sweet Blush, Black, Vellum
Ink: Pink Passion (SU), True Black, Summer Sunrise, Fresh Snow (PTI)
Accessories: Black Button, Pink Sorbet Twine (The Twinery)


THE DETAILS:
**Use the sketch provided and try to incorporate some STRING!
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC067.
**Post a comment with a link to your card on right here on this post by Sunday, February 20, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday morning/afternoon).
**PRIZE ~ DT member Lynn Miller's favorite... the Webster's Pages Vellum and Die Cut Kit! Winner is chosen randomly from all participants.
