PaperSmooches: Designer Drafts


Hello there and welcome to this week's PaperSmooches Sparks challenge.  Check out this sketch below. I'll admit that I stared at this one for a bit and then I started to search through my die cuts thinking about how I could mirror those shapes.  The rest is history :).  If you look through my stamp stash you'll see that most of my stamps are sentiments.  Think that needs to change so that I can switch up my cards a bit more!

For this card two dies were used:  Loopy Leaf and Hot Spots Large Set 2.  I love this sentiment.  We all need reminders to believe in ourselves.  Even on the best days there is that voice in our head that needs the reminder that we will succeed.  The Group Hug set has this and so many fabulous sentiments.



Please be sure to stop by the other design team members blogs to check out their fabulous creations.

And of course, we'd love to see you play along. You'll have until Saturday at 11:59 PST to join along.   Hop on over to the PaperSmooches Sparks blog to play along with us!

Can you believe that I don't have any Paper Smooches dies? This is fun, and yes, perfect sentiment.

Fabulous take on the sketch. I am looking at that sketch, and thinking it is very difficult, but I think I could CASE your pretty card.

Lynn, your card is fabulous! Brilliant take on the sketch- I really love the pairing of the hot spot and loopy leaf dies. I would have never guessed that you puzzled over this inspiration sketch too! :) I hope you and you family have a Happy Thanksgiving!
