My Favorites from Limelight Sketch Challenge

Unity Stamps and rhinestones that glitter.
Basic grey wassail paper that reminds me of winter.
Piggy tales, pearls, urban prairie buttons
Warm, fuzzy dotted May Arts Ribbons and rub-ons! When the mojo's gone.
When I'm feeling, like I can't make a single thing.
I simply remember my favorite Limelight things and then I don't feel so bad!

So there you have it, all the deets on this week's challenge. Brandi provided us with a wonderful sketch (doesn't she always. Thanks, Brandi!). So you probably want to see the sketch, huh? So there it is. I ended up squeezing it together a bit and creating a square card. I had such a hard time narrowing down my favorite Limelight products to something specific to use (you know, I love everything!, LOL!). So I went with some general product categories.

Here is the list of MY Favorite Limelight products: Unity Stamps (I used Jolly Little Winter on this card), Ribbon (the twill ribbon is awesome, and now Mandy got in some Satin ribbon-yummy!), and bling (here I used the Kaisercraft Black Rhineston and the new Shimmerz paints in olive). Let me tell you a little about the shimmerz paints on this card. It is hard to see in the photo, but man is this stuff shimmery. Everything I used to make this card you can get at Limelight (excpet the punches and copic markers).The ribbon on the card, was actually white twill and I turned it green and sparkly! I just used a sponge brush (note to self, get a fine tip paint brush. I don't have one, so I couldn't really add it to small spaces) and painted it on the ribbon. It didn't take a lot to cover the ribbon, but I did have to paint both sides. I set is aside to dry (and used my heat gun to speed up to process) while I put the rest of the card together. I love having a good white ribbon to transform into a color I need! I did add a bit of Shimmerz to the green gloves. It is easy to work with, you just paint and let dry. These paints are all the rage right now, check them out in the store. Mandy has many colors to choose from. Okay, so enough rambling.
Give the sketch a try and be sure to join us at You could win a Unity single stamp and package of Kaisercraft rhinestones of your choice!
Don't forget to check out what the other Limelight DT members did for this challenge. The links to their blogs are listed to the right or you can find them on Mandy's blog. I love to see how everyone else interpreted the challenge!
Oh, and check out the SALE going on at Limelight. Mandy put a few of our Favorite Things on sale.


  1. I love it! I like how you changed the sketch up to work with your card, and that penguin is so cute! (I use my aquapainter for shimmerz, just in case you have one, you can save yourself the $ from buying a brush)What a great idea to paint the twill with the shimmerz! I'm going to have to try that!

  2. Oh this is darling! I love how you put the sentiment above the fireplace - looks awesome with the brads! I just love this set, it's so cute. (And I just ordered some shimmerz, can't wait to try it!)

  3. i thought for sure you'd be using giggle grove today! LOL very cute card. The fire looks so real!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
