A Little Note to Brighten Your Day

Hello Again.  Yes, it's still Monday....but I decided to come back one more time today.

It isn't very often that I can join in a Make It Monday challenge at PaperTrey Ink.  But today I got up early (for me) and got so much done that I could stop and make a card to post today.  Yay me!

Nichole has six sketches on her blog today so I chose the one pictured below.  I wanted to use that sparkly stuff that you see as a lampshade so I went to work cutting and piecing and gluing until this is what happened.  I also wanted to use those animal print glass embellishments. Oh - and I used three lines of that sparkly stuff for that black horizontal line too. I'll be telling you more about that sparkly stuff later this week.  I am still experimenting with it.  But so is probably the coolest stuff I've found lately.  Which is why I can't stop typing "sparkly stuff".

Back to the card.  I just pieced the background together and then added the embellishments and the stamped sentiment (raised up on chipboard).  The stamps and dies are all from PaperTrey Ink, of course.

So off to link my project.  And you should play along too.  Just choose one of the new great sketches and get to work on your masterpiece.  Here is the sketch I used:

See ya tomorrow.



  1. Love your take on the sketch. The lamp shade is awesome!

  2. A great take on the sketch. And sparkly stuff is always tons of fun!

  3. OMG! I love the choice of colors and the paper that you used was just so amazing! Keep posting please.


I love hearing from you! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment.
