I WON SOME BLOG CANDY & WEDNESDAY SKETCH!


That's right.. I won some blog candy!!! Hooray! I love it! My fellow SCSer Julia Aston has a fabulous blog called Create With Me... she creates some really fantastic stuff and is such an inspiration. Please check out her blog by either clicking on the link above or on the sidebar. As a way to celebrate having 2,000 hits on her blog, she gave away some MFT blog candy - lucky me, I WON! This is what I will be getting-->

I am sooo excited because this will be my first MFT set! ... and look at that yummy dp! So, thanks again Julia!!
So.. in the spirit of giving.. I will post my very own Blog Candy Giveaway on Friday.. so check back to see what it is and to enter to win!!


On to today sketch challenge... Here is the sketch by Roxie.. I really like this sketch, but had a super hard time with stamping the image.

My dp is Wedding Multi Mat Pad by K&Company.. so I went with the title and made a wedding card. I used he wedding cake stamp from Fun & Fast Notes. I stamped the image 5 times before I finally got it centered on that tiny piece of paper - whew! Now there are lots of wedding cake images for my DD Sarah to play with - at least she will be happy. I used some LA for the icing on the cake, and while it was still warm and smushy I went over it with my sakura glitter gellyroll pen, I also went over the entire image with it when I was finished coloring. I used some bling in the corners instead of brads to jazz it up a bit. I pulled out my swirl cb for the background piece, and added some irridescent ribbon that shines beautifully in the light. Thanks for looking!
