My Time Sketch Challenge #32

Well, I have some pretty exciting news to share with you - Lauren Meader has asked me to join her My Time To Create Challenge Team!! I'm thrilled to be sharing samples for her amazing challenges each Saturday with you. She's completely revamped her Challenge schedule and has a whole new lineup in store. You can read the details about her plans HERE.

Today is my first official post as a member of Lauren's team and I'm sharing with you my sample for Sketch Challenge #32! Here's a look at this week's sketch:

For my sample, I decided to highlight some really fun digi papers from the Carefree kit by Heather Roselli and Tracy Howard (Sweet Shoppe Designs). I actually didn't stamp on my card, because it just didn't need it with these eye-catching papers! I did add some white satin ribbon (SU) and a single yellow button (Basic Grey) for embellishments. The bracket-y thing on the right side is a printed digi embellishment, actually a journaling tag and I just typed "happy birthday" before printing. The main paper panels are all matted on white cardstock and popped up on dimensionals for added depth. Pretty simple!

And here's a peek at all of the DT samples:

Head on over to their individual blogs and check out what the team has created - there's some pretty fab eye candy!!


If you'd like to play along, you can post to your blog or any of the online galleries using keyword mytimess32 and then head back over to Lauren's post HERE and add your creation to Mr. Linky.

Awesome job! Those papers are so bright and wonderful. Isn't it funny how sometimes you sit down to "stamp" but you don't actually stamp. LOL! Great job!
