Just Add Ink #220 - Sketch Challenge

I cannot believe I forgot to post this on Friday .. my apologies! Had most of it written as draft and ready to go Wednesday night and then I must have gone away with the fairies because it totally slipped my mind.

But better late than never right?  This week over at Just Add Ink we have a fun sketch for you to play with.

For my card I have used one of my cute new images from Purple Onion Designs.

Stamped Image: Purple Onion Designs, Sentiment by My Favorite Things

Seize The Sketch #22

I have been in a bit of a stamping slump lately, feeling totally unmotivated and struggling to get anything done. A lot has to do with not being well for a few weeks, but to be honest I have been feeling this way for a while!  And as it turns out, so has a dear stamping friend of mine. Seems I am not the only one! So we decided to issue ourselves a challenge to get something made this weekend to post to our blogs.

I started with this week's challenge over at Seize The Sketch and created a bit of a retro card using some fun dies from My Favorite Things. This is the sketch.

And this is my card.

Stamps: Technique Tuesday
Dies: My Favorite Things
Paper: Kaiser and Echo Park
Other: Wink of Stella clear glitter pen,
