Papertake Weekly - sketch week!

Oh gosh, I am so late in putting up my card for Papertake Weekly! I am so out of kilter! I am really hoping I can get back on schedule after this weekend. So anyway, it's sketch week over at PTW, and I LOVE Dawny's sketches! They're always amazing and it takes all the guesswork out of making a card.  Since it's the last Tuesday of the month, that means we're being sponsored by the amazing and generous Simon Says Stamp!



First, here's a look at Dawny's awesome sketch


And this is what I did with it!


For my card, I used some of my scrap paper from Three Bugs in a Rug matted by Bazzill cardstock. The doily is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs and the cute elephant is an image from Peggy Love's Vintage. It's on her Collection of Cuties CD.  Loooooove it!!! I mean seriously...can you go wrong with a pink gingham elephant? LOL! I just used one of my clear stamps on it's little note and doodled around the edge. I printed it out twice on my paper and cut them both out.  They're both mounted with dimensional tape.  The flowers and corners are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from Stamp and Create.


So that's it for me today! Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the gorgeous creations. Then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and put Dawny's sketch to good use! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon!  Hugs!
