Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge - Paper Makeup Stamps

Paper Makeup Stamps has a new challenge for you today and it's one of my favorites...a sketch challenge. Gabby Arriaza came up with this fabulous sketch that I have to admit gave me a few fits! I sort of had to case Gabby's card because all the layers were throwing me off! It's nice to see a sketch in action...I think it relieves some of the stress!

I chose this beautiful fairy named Rose (for the obvious reasons). (She's also available in digi format here if you like digis.) She's colored in the Color Throwdown colors of light green (river rock) and rust, and the third CTD color is burgundy...can you see it in there? The rose is a burgundy color! That is the only way I could work it into my card! I also added a burgundy flower when I took my picture! I hope that counts CTD girls!

The dp is SU's retired Apple Cider. I'm on my way to keeping my New Year's resolution of using up that old dp! It was perfect for this challenge...well, except for the burgundy! The ribbon is river rock and I swirled some river rock ink around the image, the sentiment and the white lacy piece. I'm very happy with this card. I made it a Thank You card because I need to send out a thank you to a very nice friend. The sentiment is from Everyday Thanks.

If you'd like to participate in this challenge, you can get all the information from the PMS blog. You can also post the direct link to your creation there. You don't have to use PMS stamps, but if you have them, why not? There are some great ones out there, too! Thanks for stopping in today. Have a great weekend!

Great job with the sketch. I could not figure out how to do it literally - I had to "expand" my horizons :0) I too am trying to use up old DP - SU! in particular. Out with the old so we can get in with the new right ;0)

GAH...this is GORGEOUS Lisa! Jaw dropping gorgeous! :O

It's funny how we're pretty alike when it comes to sketches. I too have a horrible fit when I look at a sketch and it's just that...a sketch! I need to see samples or else I'll cry...lol. Good thing I had already made a card with the same "sketch" last year to fall back on.
