This week's Heart 2 Heart challenge is to try this sketch! I love using sketches since the design work is already done for you, and I couldn't resist playing with the soon-to-be-retired (as of 7/31) Magnifique papers.
I started with a Sky 4"x6" top-fold card base and then layered on that gorgeous striped Magnifique paper. To me, this sketch cried out for using ribbon for the strips, and though my first thought was Colonial White, the Chocolate ribbon looked better. I pulled some Sky buttons out of my stash to enhance the ribbon and then glammed them up with Mocha Opaques and Blue Sparkles.
After stamping the sentiment from the Sensational Seals stamp set in Sky (with the edges rolled in Pacifica), I cut out the image, then layered it (with 3-D foam tape) onto a Sky scallop-punched circle. Finally, I alternated the tiny Blue Sparkles and Mocha Opaques to finish off this card.
If you want to give H2H challenges a try, this sketch is a great place to start. You have until the end of the month to upload your project based on this sketch (and to eligible for some great prizes!). Please remember to use some wonderful Close To My Heart products on your project. Be sure to visit the H2H blog to see what the other Design Team members and our guest designer have to share with you. I think some of them used some NEW products, available beginning 8/1!
