A Sketch Challenge at PPA!

At Pals Paper Arts we are hosting a sketch challenge!

My mother-in-laws birthday is coming up so I decided to use the sketch to create my card.

Here are some tips:
  • I used the birthday sentiment from the SAB set, Whimsical Words. I used SU markers to fill in each word a bit differently.
  • My big shot came in handy when creating this card. I used it along with a Texturz plate to create the Certainly Celery background, and I also used it with the Big Bold Cupcakes sizzlits.
  • Dazzling Diamonds glitter was applied with a 2-way glue pen to create frosting.
  • Pretties Kit flowers were dyed using Melon Mambo ink. Yellow glitter dots (non-SU) were used for the centers.
You will want to make sure to participate this week at PPA! We are giving away some great BLOG CANDY!!! To qualify all you need to do is participate.
