Pile It On! challenge 6 - a sketch

Morning all,

Hope you're having a great weekend. The sun is shining here, so no complaints! As today is Sunday, there is a new challenge posted at Pile It On! and this week we want you to use our sketch along with other current challenges as you pile it on! Remember piled on challenges need to be current to count.

This is the card I made using the sketch.

At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to make, a card or a scrapbook page. This sketch would be great for either, but I settled on a card. I'm much better at cards than I am at scrapbook pages. So, I'll stick with what I know! :)

This card also fits the challenges at Papertake Weekly of "my favorite things" of which I used my favorite color combo of purple and green with my new favorite paper, BasicGrey Wisteria! Love this paper! The card stock is SU! Elegant Eggplant and Mellow Moss. I used my Rainy Day Emma stamp from Whimsy Stamps and paper pieced her dress, boots, and umbrella to fit the challenge at Simon Says Stamp which was to paper piece on your project. The rest of the image was colored with Copics.

The small rectangle areas are a green piece of Wisteria paper with embossed vellum over. V is for vellum was the challenge over at ABC Challenges. And my sentiment, from SU! Short and Sweet is thank you to fit the "thank you miss" theme at Cute Card Thursday. My final accents to finish off this card are some Prima flowers, dew drop beads, grosgrain ribbon, gingham ribbon, and linen thread with a butterfly charm.

Thanks for dropping by this Sunday. I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and if you're in the mood to challenge yourself, join us in piling it on! Happy stamping. :)
