Hi! This is Sherry from the Design Team and today I have a card for this week's Crazy4Challenges Sketch Challenge. I used the Rubber Romance Image, Brooke and a Book. I chose this image because Summer starts next weekend (Yes, I know technically Summer doesn't start until mid-late June...but the party starts NOW!) I really would LOVE to be at the beach or by the pool with a book and a margarita. But alas, I have responsibilities so I must live vicariously through Brooke. Hopefully, you can enjoy her sunshine too.
For my card, I started off with an image stamped on white card stock and I chose two patterns of paper (both from the Pink Paislee line 365 degrees) to stamp the image on as well.
Next I added some Ranger Glossy Accents to the Margarita Glass.
Then I added some sheen to the sunglasses with a Sakura Glaze Black Embossing Pen
While the Glossy Accents and Sakura Glaze are drying I start assembling my card. I decided to machine stitch around the base panel- just because it was fun.
Then I did some paper-piercing and added ribbon and buttons. Finally my main image was ready to be added and this is the end result:
Aaaahh. Can't you just imagine relaxing in the sun with a book. I know I sure can. I hope you enjoyed the project today and I hope your Memorial Day weekend is Fun and Fabulous!

Lately I have been on a layout kick! I don't know about you, but I look for inspiration in a lot of different places. Stamps can even be a way to inspire. I was looking through my Rubber Romance stamps and I came across a fabulous sentiment. It inspired me to look through my photos to find one that would perfectly match. I stamped my sentiment right onto the cardstock. I then stamped the "sun" part on a small piece of pattern paper and placed it inside the other stamp. I created sun rays coming off of my stamp with pattern paper strips.So next time you are looking for inspiration, try digging into those sentiment stamps!

I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for tins. I have a whole box full of them ready to be altered and filled with fun. This cute little tin is super easy to make into a pedicure kit.
I found the lime green pedicure essentials at Michaels' in the dollar bin. Added a bright bottle of nail polish and there you go, tin filled.
Now for the fun part. I decorated my tin with Trisha from Rubber Romance. I colored her with copics and added plenty of sparkle with stickles and rhinestones.
I think she would be a perfect party favor for a girls' weekend or spa themed party.
Thanks for stopping by today. Hope all the moms out there had a wonderful day yesterday and were totally spoiled.
