Paper Makeup Stamps - Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge

The Friday Paper Makeup Stamps Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge this week is a sketch challenge. This sketch was created by none other than me! Two sketch challenges in a row for me (last week's JUGs sketch challenge was mine too!)! I LOVE them, but always follow them, not create them!

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.So what do you think? Can you work with this one? Here's what I came up with.Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I decided to do a Valentine's themed card. I love the PMS Beautiful Day Fairies (it's what drew me to the company), so I used the Heart Fairy. The color combination came from the Color Throwdown Challenge blog and were chosen by their new DT member and my fellow JUGs DT member and friend, Kristin Bueter. The colors are Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, and Dusty Durango.

Kristin has recently joined forces with Lauren Meader's new company, My Time Made Easy, and is creating digi paper. I used two prints from the Fluttering-by pack since they included these colors. I colored the Heart Fairy accordingly with copic makers. The hearts were cut with nesties and embossed with the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is also from PMS and went perfectly with my image. I placed some star dust stickles on the fairy, corner rounded the two outside corners and was good to go! Oh, and the candy? GONE after taking this picture! They were chocolate covered cherries.....the cheapo ones that are one of my favs!

So why not head on over to the PMS blog and see the details of the challenge and another sample of the sketch from DT member Christi Thorsen? You won't be disappointed! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!
