Paper Sweeties Sketch Challenge...You Inspire Me

It's time for a new sketch challenge from the Paper Sweeties! I decided to break out my Maja Design papers for this one...just kidding, they were already on my desk. Here's my take on this sketch, pictured below:

I made the rosettes with an Alterations die and added a big Zva pearl to the middles. There is a length of lace across the middle that I adorned with a strip of Zva pearls gems. The sentiment is from Paper Sweeties' You Are Amazing set...which has a great selection of  everyday phrases. Just for added interest, I added some stitching, a decorative border at the bottom and torn edges.

Paper Sweeties Sketch Inspiration #4:

Paper Sweeties hosts monthly sketch inspirations on the blog — a great opportunity to ink up those Sweeties sets of yours and get crafty! Each month on the 1st we will have a brand new sketch inspiration for you to play along with. You can enter as many times as you wish throughout the month — the more times you enter, the more chances you’ll have to win!
It’s as easy as 1-2-3 to create, share and win:
1. Create a card or project based on the current Sweeties Sketch Inspiration graphic using ANYTHING from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe!
2. Post a DIRECT LINK to your project in the Inlinkz gallery — please use the URL to your actual project, not your entire blog, so we can easily find your creation. You do not need to have a blog to enter — you can use any online gallery such as FlickrPinterestFacebook or Splitcoast.
3. Our sketch challenge will run for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish — just please remember to use Paper Sweeties products on your creations! (You are welcome to play along with the sketch inspiration just for fun not using goodies from our shop, but your submission will not be eligible for the monthly prize).
The challenges will end at 6 pm on the last day of each month. The new sketch will be revealed on the 1st of each month. The winner of the previous month’s sketch challenge will be announced on the 1st of each new month and will win TWO FREE STAMP SETS!!

  1. Love the medallions and great idea to use the lace trim for the hearts :) Way to think outside the box!

  2. Beautiful card. Love the medallions.

  3. I love it when there are lots of beautiful elements and a nice and simple sentiment, I think it gives the sentiment more impact. Your card is lovely!
