Welcome to another fun blog hop being hosted by members of StampTV's Center Stage Alumni. This time around, our hop is based on a Sketch Challenge. If you came from Cheri's blog, then you're right where you should be. You can also go to StampTV to see a list of all those participating.
Here is the sketch we had to work with. It was created by Melissa Cash who is celebrating her birthday today. We decided to surprise her and design birthday cards using her sketch! We wish you a wonderful birthday, Melissa!
My card for Melissa is made with stamps from the new StampTV kit, Falling for You. I love this delicate image, and paired it with some pretty floral Sweet Threads designer paper from Basic Grey. I stamped the image with Memento ink directly on one of the solid colored prints from the pack, then colored it with Copic markers, cut and embossed it with a reverse wonky rectangle, distress inking it before removing the die. Since I'm traveling with limited supplies I opted to use a single strand of ribbon rather than the three embellishments pictured in the sketch. Hopefully you still recognize the layout, flipped on its side to portrait orientation!
We are also giving away a set! Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (August 16th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs to receive a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
To continue the fun, head on over to Giovana's blog to see her amazing cards! She always has a WOW to share! :)
