Paper Sweeties' August Sketch Inspiration

Happy August friends! Being that it's the first of the month, the Paper Sweeties want to get you mojo juices flowing with a little sketch! I personally like when part of the creative process is handed to me...then I can pick up and run with it! This month's sketch is a fun's what I've done with it...followed by the design itself:

I used Paper Sweeties' 'Hand Stamped By:' set for the sentiment and the papers are just a mix of some cast-offs from my 'A Ladies' Diary' collection by Graphic45. I added some distressing and just a bit of lace for the scalloped shape.

Here's our August sketch:

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 any of your favorite crafty goodies! You’ll get an extra vote if you use ANYTHING from the Paper Sweeties Shop!!  Use the sketch as a starting point for your project — flip it, change the shapes … most important — HAVE FUN and let our sketch spark your creativity!
2. Post a DIRECT LINK to your project in our Inlinkz gallery — please use the URL to your actual project post (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 Flickr, PinterestFacebook or Splitcoast Stampers(keyword papersweeties)!  You can pin your Paper Sweeties creations directly to our Friends of Paper Sweeties Pinterest Board to contribute!
3. LINK back to the Paper Sweeties' blog post so your readers can easily find it!
The sketch challenge runs for the entire month. You can play along as many times as you wish — the more times you play, the more chances you have to win! The challenges will end at 12 pm EST 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, will win a $20 gift certificate to the shoppe and will be invited to Guest Design with the Sweeties next month!
