A Sweet Sketch

Happy Tuesday!

My card today is my entry for this week's sketch challenge (SSS12) over at The Sweet Stop. I fell in love with this patterned paper when I started using it yesterday and had to find another reason to use it today! I just love the bright combination of hot pink and turquoise blue, don't you?

I used one of the new Word Art Digis released last week by Paper Makeup Stamps as my focal point. I cut it out using my BRAND NEW and super cool Peony Nesties (also available at PMS), then layered it with some turquoise cardstock. I ran the turquoise through my CB using my "Swiss Dots" folder after cutting it out with my Nesties. (boy, I sure like saying that! Gotta love new toys! LOL!)

I went around the edge of the white layer using my Pink Passion SU marker and then Stickles (Stardust). The main words of the sentiment have been outlined using four coordinating colors of SU markers. I added a nice wide hot pink polka dot ribbon with a knot-bow and then three hot pink gems. It's simple, but super colorful and fun!
