A Happy Sketch

Happy Friday!

Good morning! Hope you're day is off to a great start. Today is Friday and that means new challenges at Just Magnolia and Stamp Something!

At SS our challenge is a very simple one, we want to see you create a Happy Something! Easy right? No excuse not to play along this week! Our sponsor this week is Karen's Doodles, but we also have some unclaimed prizes so we have some mystery candy too! There will be 3 chances to win this week! Get out those stamps and show us some HAPPY!

I've used this cute Tiger Fun image from Karen's Doodles on my card today with some fun bright and cheerful papers. These are BG Lime Rickey with the sketch from Delightful Challenges. My papers being spots and stripes also fit the challenge at Charisma Cardz this week. The image was colored with Copics and I used the dotty background technique to add some other accents. I've embellished with buttons, hemp twine, ribbon, eyelets (fits at Practical Scrappers), brads, and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

This week our JM challenge is a sketch challenge created by our talented Mina. The sketch was a lot of fun to work with so we hope you will give it a try. Please remember you must use a Magnolia image on your project to qualify for the prize. Also, our Mina has a fabulous blog candy chance on her blog right now, hop on over and check that out too!

For this card I went with bold red and white/cream colors with these sweet Magnolia papers. These are from the summer collection. I've distressed the edges with scissors and then embellished with brads, flowers, ribbon, hemp twine and a strawberry charm, and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Paper Sundaes: Summer
Sentimental Sundays: Neglected Stash (this stamp and ribbon)
All Sorts: Strawberries and Cream
Magnolia Down Under: Polka Dots (embossed layer)
Our Creative Corner: Summer

Hope you have a great day and a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by, be sure to check out the DT samples from my fellow teamies at JM and SS!

Happy Stamping,
