PCP Sketch Challenge 12-27-08

Lynn is our amazing hostess this week for Papercraft Planet's sketch challenge and she came up with a super great sketch! Check out Lynn's sample and sketch here in the Sketch Challenge Group. And here's my take on it:I used some yummy DP I picked up at my local craft store, Ben Franklin, a few weeks ago. I've never heard of this paper company before. It's called Paper Intelligence and is made in Japan. It's a very dense "fiber-y" paper that feels like heavy rice paper (and FYI it was also EXPENSIVE - like $2.50 for one 12x12 sheet - but it's BEAUTIFUL). I made a pact with myself NOT to hoard it, so here it is. I stamped the vase from Verve's Abundant Blessings onto the DP and paper pieced it over the flower silhouette, stamped in More Mustard. The Sentiment and circle stamp are from Verve's Asian Flair. The base for my card is More Mustard and I added some Baja Breeze ribbon across the center. Each of the stamped panels is popped up on dimensionals.

Well, I had a few of my afternoon patients cancel so I ran home to post this but now I better get back before my last patient arrives wondering where I am!! Enjoy the rest of your Monday!!
