Cute Card Thursday Celebrates....

Hi All!

Hope your day is off to a great start! Being that today is Thursday, it means a new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday and this is a special week and a special challenge! They are celebrating 1 year as a challenge blog! They've given themselves a face lift and are offering up some fabulous blog candy donated by 5 different sponsors and I'm happy to share that Whimsy Stamps is one of those sponsors! The challenge this week is a sketch and to enter for your chance to be one of five lucky winners, you just need to submit a project using the sketch before 8pm next Wednesday evening. Fun, right!

This is the card I made using the sketch. You know me, I love a good sketch and this one was great! It was created by Katharina, she always designs the nicest sketches.

I started by making the base of my card using SU! Pink Pirouette, Kraft, and Very Vanilla cardstock. I then add some Bittersweet paper from BasicGrey. The image is Pajama Time Emma, by Whimsy Stamps, and has been paper pieced with another Bittersweet pattern and then colored with Copics. The ribbons are from my stash and were a gift from my friend Jo. I also added some Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware pieces and flowers with pearls to finish off this card.

If you're up for a good challenge, head on over to CCT and make something using their sketch! Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by! I hope to have some time later today to do a little blog hopping and visiting! Happy Stamping!! :)
