PMS Release Day Hop and JUGs #45 Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone! You're getting a two-fer with this post! It is Release Day at Paper Makeup Stamps so the PMS DT are hopping the entire release today and we are partying later tonight in the PMS forum (more about that later). You should have arrived here from Dawn's blog. If not hop over to the PMS blog and get all the information there, then continue on the hop! You don't want to miss out on anything!

But today is also the Just Us Girls challenge! Today Kathryn is the hostess and she provided this great sketch for us!

So here is what I did with this sketch (which I flipped) and my NEW PMS image from the Color It Summer set.
All the girls on the PMS DT have been lovin' this set...me included! The stem on this flower is much longer, but I just chopped it off with my nestie to fit the sketch! As usual, I started by choosing my dp. I just adore these October Afternoon patterned papers. I used papers from The Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite collections. The flower is colored with copics AND prisma pencils. I just took a class at my LSS, Buffalo Stamps & Stuff, on Tuesday to learn this technique. Debbie (our instructor) uses this technique all the time and gets such a richness with both that you don't get with just copics. I used this technique on the card I did yesterday, and some commented on how rich the colors looked. Cool technique, but I still need to practice more. Anyway, I finished the card with a sentiment from PMS that was previously released called Birthday Cheer.

Before you go, I want to invite you to the PMS Release Party tonight at 8:00 pm CST in the PMS forum. We'd love to see you there! Also, stop by the JUGs blog to see the fab cards the girls have done, and please stop by their personal blogs to leave some love! They'd love to hear from you!

Now you need a letter from me. (Collect all the letters along the hop and it will spell out a code that will get you 15% off the new release!) I'll give you the letter "T" and send you on your way to Shaela. She'll no doubt have something great to share...she always does!

Hope to see you tonight and enjoy the rest of your hop!

Gorgeous card Lisa!! Love the shabby chic quality it has, and the sneak card is an absolute stunner!! You really know how to rock this set :0)

Rich is the word for this "juicy" red flower, Lisa. Your workspace will be scattered with copics and prismas from now on and your already beautiful cards just stepped it up yet another notch!! I am so longing for some time to play, but I don't think it'll be until the fall now unless out of necessity.
