Wanna Sketch #6

So one more thank you card from last week's blitz (which will continue this week, lol). This one uses the fab sketch from Lisa Arana's Wanna Sketch? #6. 

Supplies: paper from stash; Wplus9 banner die; Paper Smooches sentiment; Barn Door distress ink; Picket Fence stickles; yellow sparkle fabric paint


This paper's been on my desk for ages, and every time I tried to use it it just didn't work for me. Using a smidge made for a quick & easy card. I fussy-cut one of the blooms & popped it up over another at an angle for some fun dimension, and sparkled up the large flower centres. I used the largest die in the banner set & then gave each end a twist with my fingers to get the whimsical feel of the banner element in the sketch.

I'm also going to throw this in over at Simon Says Stamp for their Anything Goes challenge.

On Saturday I did a little shopping in my dear friend Barb's stash - and guess what? YOU CAN TOO! She has some really awesome stuff listed on her blog...check it out here.  There are a bunch of Paper Smooches sets...and Nesties....and if I talk much more about it I'm going to go buy more, so please save me from myself.  LOL!

xoxo,
Jessi
