Sketch Challenge 163

OH my goodness!!! This is the 3rd time tonight that I have tried to load this stupid blogger!! It better work or I GIVE UP!!!

I have had this Inkadinkado stamp for awhile and have been anxious ( yes, anxious) to ink it up!

You know how when you buy a stamp and then you are not sure just how to use your new stamp, but you know you want to use it, but it has to be just the right thing??!!

Well, I am using it now, for the sketch challenge on Splitcoast Stampers....

I used Basic Grey Blush patterned paper as my background and mounted it on some teal Bazill that I had.

I stamped my Inkadinkado cat stamp and Papertrey Ink's "Out on a Limb" verse in Versamagic turquoise gem and mounted it on the Basic Grey Two Scoops peachy background.

The verse reads "to the moon and back again, to infinity and beyond, forever & ever"! How perfect is that! I stamped the "I love you" at the bottom because I wanted it to be separate and very see-able.....yeh.

I mounted it onto the patterned paper and added some faux stitching around the outside of the peach paper with my turquoise Sakura glitter pen. Then I thought it needed a bit more, so I added more faux stitching around the images on the white paper also.

I tied the teal gauze ribbon around the card and added the heart charm. Then I found a small moon-shaped embellishment in my stash that fit perfectly on the main image and I adhered that.

I used my Sakura glitter pen to go over the stars and then used my turquoise glitter pen to trace around the kitties and the heart, just to show them off a bit more! To finish it off I added Stamping Bella pearl baubles in each corner. That is what I was wondering about before - peach or white? I had peach brads but I didn't want to take away from the image so I just added the white baubles. Pretty!!

Perch for supper! IT was delishhhhh!



  1. The pattern paper is sooo pretty! I love it. The card is cute too!

  2. Very cute card! I almost bought that stamp...glad you did!

  3. What do I say first? Hmmmm....there is so much that I love about this card that I just don't know where to start. I guess I'll just jump in.
    That image is just adorable and the sentiment is just the perfect match. I also love the DP and the pearls in the corners. Then there is the color combo! Everything is fabo! Great card, Bonnie.
    Hope your Valentines Day was all that you hoped it would be!
