Just Us Girls Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year everyone! I hope this year brings everything your heart desires!

Today is Saturday and that means a challenge from
Just Us Girls. It's the very first JUGs challenge of 2010 and I'm the hostess! It just so happens to be a sketch challenge, which is my nemesis because I am sketch-challenged! But I managed to pull off a sketch for you that the girls really rocked! Here is the sketch.
So what do you think? Did I do a good job and do you think you can work with it? I have total confidence in you! LOL!! Here's what I did with the sketch (which I flipped on its side to accommodate my image).I purchased this stamp last year from
Alota Rubber Stamps because I didn't have any fun New Year's images. I actually purchased another, but it really didn't work with this sketch. I started with my dp, which is a new digital one from Lauren Meader's new store, My Time Made Easy, which was designed by my friend and fellow JUGs DT member Kristin Bueter. It's Magenta and Tan stipes, which matched really well with SU's Riding Hood Red and Sahara Sand. The glass, ribbon, and confetti are all part of one stamp, but I cut them apart so that they could be placed where I needed them to be. The ribbon is on dimensionals, but not the confetti (too small for that!). I covered them with Platinum and Star Dust Stickles. The glass was covered with Crystal Effects and was very wet when I took the picture! Here's a closeup of the glass so you can see the shine from the CE.I only have one stamp (I think!) that says "Happy New Year", but it was too big. So, I created this on my computer.

You can see the cards the girls created and the details of the challenge on the
JUGs blog. But you can also go to the girls' personal blogs to read more about their cards too! We have a guest designer for January, who totally by coincidence is my new fellow Paper Makeup Stamps DT member Gabby Arriaza. So please stop by and leave them some wonderful comments.

I hope you have a chance to play! I'll be making sure I comment all week, so I will see your card if you do one! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

This is just too cute and reminded me so much of my New Year's Eve! We were drinking champagne mixed with Bacardi strawberry rum (a must try) with sugar on the rim and a raspberry and a bluebery floating in it. Oh but I digress. Your card is just FAB! Love all of the detail and the stickles glitter and the new dp from Lauren! Very unique!
