Stamps & Smiles Sketch Challenge

Stamps & Smiles have a weekly sketch challenge starting every Thursday. I really enjoy the sketch challenges, so thought I'd see what I could come up using this fabulous sketch!


I've used one of my Bella Stamps, which are so much fun to work with. I really love paper-piecing the dresses!

I've started off with a base card in Pretty in Pink and folded into a standard size card. The I've layered with some DP from Berry Bliss and also a piece of Purely Pomegrante which I've put thru the Cuttlebug. I've stamped the Ballon-a-bella onto the Whisper White and also onto some Berry Bliss DP - pink dotted. I've cut out the dress and sponged the edges with pink ink. Then I've coloured the rest of the girl in with my ink pads. With the balloons, I've used some Tombow glue and chunky glitter.
I've finished off the card with a flower from the Pretties Kit, a photo corner with brad, some paper piercing and a sentiment.

Don't forget the Berry Bliss Designer paper is retiring, so if you would like to have some of this gorgeous paper, email me for details. The retiring goodies are going very fast.
