May Paper World Sketch Challenge #4


Talk about just barely making it! I had a fortnight to complete a challenge for Fiona at My Paper World and just made it on the last day, in the last hour. It may be too late for Fiona but I did enjoy making it. I used Stampin' Up! cardstock and main stamp (Blooming with Happiness), some paper flowers and a brad from my stash, my paper piercing tool, and free hand for the flourish and sentiment. I used glossy white cardstock and sponge daubed with Stampin' Up! inks Pretty in Pink and Barely Banana. I embossed the stamped image in black before daubing.


Oh and a whole new sketch challenge begins at My Paper World tomorrow.

This is a beautiful card! I love the paper piercing. I keep forgetting that this simple technique can take a great card to a WOW! card.
