Creative Confetti: Sketch It Out!

Hello all and happy Tuesday to you! Today, I thought I'd do something I love and offer up a brand new sketch here on the Creative Confetti Challenge! It's always a good time when you can just try someone else's layout design, take the guesswork out and just color and create!  

HOW TO PLAY: All you have to do is create using the sketch below. Use Power Poppy Stamps  if you have them but if not, this is a great way to try to win some Power Poppy goodness! Just that simple!

Let's take a look at the sketch....

And now, on to my creation! 

A few weeks ago, I followed along with Nancy Sheads as she colored up an image from the Holly Golightly setI love her Inspire Me Monday coloring videos. It's just so peaceful to have a coloring companion! ;-) You can CLICK HERE to see this tutorial for yourself! She shares what Copic Markers she uses as she goes, making it super easy to pause, grab the color and then hit play and follow along. 

After I was done coloring, I used a stitched edge circle die and matted it on top of a few layers of different decorative paper, add a little doily, some twine and... ta da! Done! The little tag sentiment features a portion of a sentiment from the stamp set Simple Joys. 

Here's a look at a closeup of my card front. You can see, when I was all done, I did add a little sparkle thanks to a Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. Gotta have a little sparkle! 

So, there you have it folks -- that's my take on a brand new sketch! I hope you join me for this week's challenge! 

That means the winner of the September challenge is.....


Susan created a beautiful card for our Free For All Challenge using Power Poppy's Chickadee in Barberry digital stamp!  Check it out! And, if you want to see more of her creative process, all you need to do is click HERE to hop on over to her blog!
