Limelight Sketch Challenge

It's Thursday and it's our week at Limelight to share our sketch challenge cards and give you a chance to play along for a prize.
Sometimes as stampers and scrapbookers we can get stuck in a bit of a routine of doing the same thing over and over. Well, this sketch and product challenge aims to remedy that problem! That's because we're challenging you to think of new ways to use what you have! We want to see you use two or more DIFFERENT stamps on your card or scrapbook layout.
Whether you create a scene with your stamps or just combine a background stamp and an image stamp, we want you to do something new and creative! Limelight Papercrafts has tons of fantastic stamps to choose from! If you don't have any Limelight products, that's ok! Just use what you do have! We can't wait to see what you create!
Here's what you need to do:
Sketch and Product Challenge with a focus on using two or more DIFFERENT stamps.
Uploads to SCS should have the keyword: LLPC013.
Participants should post a comment and a link to their card on Mandy's blog. All entries must be submitted by Sunday, January 25th , at midnight to win a Stampendous single of their choice!
And here is my sample for you. I feel a little silly sharing this incomplete page with you, but thanks to that fun stamp, "place photo here", I think it looks quite nice (it's from the Unity kit, Our Life, Our Stories). I know exactly which picture I am going to put on this page. I was cleaning up my photos the other day on the computer and saw the cutest picture of Ryan and Nicholas eating popsicles on the back patio last summer. As soon as I saw the picture, I said to myself, "oooo, I want to use the Delectable Delights set on a page for this picture along with that cute paper by Pink Paisley". When I sat down to work with this sketch this week, it all just came together.

I actually used four different stamps on this page. I stamped and colored (with copics) the yummy popsicle three times and pieced some of that fun polka dot paper onto the image. I used the Sweet Stuff sentiment as a border along the bottom of my page. That is a fun easy way to use stamps on a scrapbook page. If you are nervous to stamp on a page, start there. The other stamping on the page is the work YUM in the title. The word summer was cut from a CuttleKids alphabet die and then I stamped YUM with an SU set, Jumbo Outline alpha. After I was done, I still felt the page need something else, so I added this strip of orange striped ribbon. Now I'm motivated to get some pictures developed and onto some pages! Be sure to see what the other DT members did with this sketch. You won't be let down, I promise you. Also, play along, it is a great week to play! Hugs, Lisa
