A few challenges along the way....

This week the Play Date Cafe threw an interesting color combination at me......

It took me a bit to bring it all together, but I am pleased with the end result. Hurry over to the cafe....the deadline is Tuesday evening!!

The fabby, offset scalloped paper I used is from October Afternoon and when I saw it at the store a few days ago...I knew exactly where it was going.... the new Moxie Fab World Challenge. You have until October 4th to get in on the fun over there!! Why not give it a try!!


The whole inspiration for my little beauty was this great sketch from GET SKETCHY. I have been playing along with these guys for a few weeks now and I am really starting to love their sketches!! Fun, fun, fun...
Now, here are the goods.....

OMGoodness, I am loving that background paper!!!!

Here is a list of the rest of the supplies that I used:
Card Stock: Red Riding Hood, Wild Wasabi, Very Vanilla (Stampin' Up)
Patterned Paper: Sprinklers (October Afternoon)
Stamps: Just A Note (Just Rite Stampers)
Ink: Wild Wasabi (Stampin' Up)
Dies: Fancy Tags, Labels 9 (Spellbinders)
Extras: Puff Paint (craft supply); lace & twine (craft supply)

Thanks for taking a look today! I hope you have a super day!

If you love sketches as much as I do, check in tomorrow for Sketch Tuesday from Skipping Stones Designs. There will be a new stamp set introduced and a new sketch!!

See you then!
