Tuesday Morning Sketches #195 - Clearly Digital Stamps!

Good morning & happy Tuesday! Always a busy one around here :) This week at Tuesday Morning Sketches we have Clearly Digital Stamps as our sponsor - formerly known as Clearly Dollar Stamps - home to some very fun & inspirational images. Debbie created our sketch this week, and guess what? I made a tall card! Her sketch was perfect for one, and yet will also easily adapt for a regular quarter-fold size. You've gotta love that!
I thought this would be a perfect sketch to make a birthday card for my sister's new sister-in-law:

Supplies: cupcake paper from JJ!; Sizzix labels die; classic small oval Nesties; super-sparkly Thickers from American Crafts (from Barb!); Doodlebug letter stickers; aqua twine

Do you know what? Thickers should totally come with little 'th' and 'st', etc, stickers in their packages. Just sayin'.

The card measures 4" wide and 8" tall, and fits perfectly in a 'legal' envelope. And its super-sparkliness makes it perfect for the current Catered Crop challenge, Just Add Glitter!

Here's the Tuesday Morning Sketch:

This sketch is open until next Sunday, April 28th.  And, did you know - if you 'like' Tuesday Morning Sketches on Facebook, you can have access to the sketch the evening before it goes live??

Ooohh, Thickers! I agree with you about the 'th'. Haha. I love the bright, happy colours on your card and the fact that it's customized!
