27 Sketches in 27 Days-#1

I should have started this a few days ago, but time got away from me...You know how that goes! On the 27th of this month I'm turning 27, and I wanted to do something here on my blog. So I brainstormed, and came up with the idea of 27 sketches.

I'll be posting 1 sketch every day for 27 days and post a card along with the sketch. I'll challenge you to link your sketch so we can all see your design! Doesn't that sound fun??!!

Today is the 1st sketch. I got the layout idea from the snowman I made 2 weeks ago.

I think this sketch works really well with Stampin' UP! stamps. Since they're sold in sets, you can use coordinating sets for the focal point and others for the bg image.

Alright...get stamping! Come back and link your card so we can all see it!!


Sketch #1 recipe:
Stamps: Just like you
Paper: Purely pomegranate, Mellow Moss, Apricot Appeal, WW
Ink: Purely pomegranate, Mellow Moss, Apricot Appeal, Bordering Blue

Very nice sketch and I love the idea of 27 in 27 days. I had to give this one a try and I am sure I will be trying others.
