2 Sketches 4 You Anniversary Card Challenge Entry

Hi all,

I was blog hopping again recently and came across a fun challenge on the 2 Sketches 4 You blog with awesome prizes. I'm not one to enter challenges very often because I don't usually remember until the last minute, but since the kiddos were spending time and Nana & Poppa's and Michael and I had a date night, I figured it was a perfect chance to enter!


Here's the original sketch - Laura's Sketch 27 from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog:



Here's my take on it:


The popped-out letters were inspired by Amy B's "Hi" card. I loved how she gave the Stickease letters more dimension by putting them on coordinating cardstock and cutting them out with her MicroTip scissors, so I gave it a try here, too.

I love how this card turned out! It was so easy and there was absolutely NO STAMPING! It's all made with Close To My Heart Stickease (cardstock stickers) and coordinating papers from their Emporium line. The ribbon is stuff I've had forever, and the pretty pin is from Stampin' Up's Pretties Kit.

Thanks for looking! I hope you have a great day!

Wow ladies! I'm feeling the love! Thanks!!!! Samie - all of the square cards have been 6x6, but they're just as cute as 5x5, 4x4 and even 3x3 for fun gift cards.
