Limelight Sketch and Product Focus!

You're going to like this one! I did! It's all about paper!
You do it. I do it. We ALL do it. And we all know it.That's right... We ALL hoard our patterned paper! okay, so I admit I don't hoard it, I just buy too much of it! We are afraid of not having our papers once we use them! And we, therefore, all need that push to get us to share the patterned joy with others through our handmade cards! Today is another installment of the Limelight Sketch and Product Challenge, and we want you to USE that patterned paper! The lovely Lee Murphy has created another sketch for us, and what a perfect sketch it is for using your favorite papers!

Here's my card and I can't wait to try this on a scrapbook page. I just didn't have time to do both, but I will!

I just got these fun earthy papers (What a Hoot) by Kaiser Kraft and I knew they would look fabulous with these little cute guys, 3 wholigans by Unity! The letters are by Basic Grey, they are white chipboard and I colored them with Copics. I added a bit of stitching detail around the dp strips and some piercing along the photo corners. Easy Peasy! Give the sketch a go and be sure to link it up to Mandy's post. Here are the deets on the challenge:

***Use the sketch provided and think PATTERNED PAPER!

**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC022.

**Post a comment with a link to your card on Mandy's post by Sunday, May 31, at midnight (or before winner is drawn Monday a.m.).

Don't forget about our ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION on Monday! Be here for games, prizes, and sales!!
