Stamp Ink Paper 62 Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday to you all!! My countdown until school starts has dwindled down to 2 days and my best friend Amy leaves today... Bittersweet to think about, I know I will shed some tears! The oldest Tucker child has back to school night tonight so I am sure I will just be distracted by the daily grind!

This week with Stamp Ink Paper we have a fabulous sketch and when you see my card you will know it probably came together really fast!

I knew when I saw this sketch and received my pre-order that I was going to try to interpret it pretty literally. I just love the new Fancy Frost sequin mix in the holiday catalog! That's right I said Stampin' Up! has a great sequin mix! I hope to see this trend continue... We all know I love my sequins! So when choosing my colors I focused around the color of the sequins, Soft Sky and Sweet Sugar Plum! I wasn't sure that the Sweet Sugar Plum was going to be a color I was interested in even though I had bought the In Colors when they debuted, but my mind has changed! The base of the card is Sweet Sugar Plum with a matte of Soft Sky. The Whisper White layer is stamped using the stars from Be Jolly, By Golly with Soft Sky Ink! I stamped the Be Joyful sentiment from the Merriest Wishes bundle seemed to be just the fit! This bundle is amazing with 7 fabulous dies to make some really cute tags like the one at the bottom! I simply used the Fancy Frost sequin mix with Sweet Sugar Plum envelope paper as my backing! The Silver Metallic Thread seemed to fit the whole mojo of the card!

Thanks for taking a peek at my Stamp Ink Paper this week! I can't wait to see how you interpret this sketch!
