Stamper's Dream January Challenge!

This month's Stampers Dream Dreamy Challenge is a sketch challenge. My special thanks to Tosh for the sketch!

I just this very moment realized as I uploaded the sketch that I kinda blew it...dang it! Now how in the heck did I do THAT! I should have angled one of my panels...but at the 11th hour it's too late to fix it now. Sorry guys! I totally suck at challenges! Should go to the time-out room now or something! :-(

The images I used are from the Stampendous Fluffles Wuv clear stamp set.
I stamped on watercolor paper using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then embossed with JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder. The stamped image was colored with Tombow (water based) markers and a damp paint brush.

I punched a few hearts and adhered them to the oval panel, then used my Quickie Glue Pen for adhesive, then added Crystal Ultrafine Transparent Glitter to the small hearts.

The designer paper is from the NEW Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad. The cardstock is Pink Prismatics .

In order to keep my card square (and follow the rules, or so I thought), I added a strip across the bottom. The ric rac is Raspberry Velvet by May Arts.

We encourage ALL of you to play along with this month's sketch challenge. And it would be nice if you follow the sketch instead of screwing it up like I did! LOL! Please link your card to this blog post. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword SDDC4.


All those who play along and link here have a chance to win this little Dreamy Treat! I will use a random drawing and announce the winner in my regular blog post next Thursday night.

Be sure to visit the Dream Team to see what the rest of them have done with the sketch. (I'll bet they did it right..don't you think?) Here are the links to their blogs:

Ahhhh, it's close enough I say. You *made it your own*...and I like that. {smile}

...and you used your Bittersweet paper already. Ohhhhh, mine is sitting here just staring at me, calling my name, but I don't think I'll have time until next week. {sigh}

Gorgeous card, girl! GORGEOUS!

Just darling Michelle. I love the sparkle and the fabulous Bittersweet Basicgrey!! And the rickrack is just fabulous!! Okay...so you turned the diamond into a rectangle...there might have to be consequences. It's a good thing this is so cute, or the consequences would be even more severe. *grin*
