WHAT IF? Wednesday - a Repeat Impressions Sketch Challenge

Today is WHAT IF? Wednesday - the day you are challenged to create a card with a sketch from Wendy of Repeat Impressions.  You can find the sketch and the details here.  How about joining us? :)  You have two weeks to create your card, upload it, and link it to the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built.  Have fun!  One random participant from the July challenges will win a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  Check out what the other Design Team members have done, too!

Here is the sketch.  For my card, I used the Lupine stamp (which is the Stamp of the Week - scroll down just a little bit) and colored it with Stampin' Up! markers.  I cut the image with a Nestability and embossed it.  I left it in the die, and used Barely Banana chalk around the edges to nearly the center. The matting for all pieces is Mellow Moss.  The patterned paper is from Die Cuts With a View.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and is cut with Nestabilities, also.  I added pearls in the corner (per the sketch) and beside the sentiment.


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

That is so pretty. I thought your patterned paper was a ribbon. I love the barely banana inside the nestie.
