25th Anniversary

Welcome to this week's Sketch Challenge from Utah Divas International! Here is the sketch for this week:

And here is my card:

Surprise! I used the Soho Subway Designer Paper again!  I just couldn't resist using another of the landmark signs as my background layer. This card went together very quickly, and I think the rhinestone's are just what I needed to make it pop.

Here's what I used:

Stamp Set: Really Good Greetings
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Card Stock: Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Crisp Cantaloupe
Punches: 1-3/4" Circle, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle
Embellishments: Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Rhinestone Basic Jewels

This is another simple card. You could step it up by stamping a patterned background on the card base or running the card base through the Big Shot with a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

I hope you enjoyed this week's sketch. Be sure to stop by the UDI Blog to see what the rest of the Design Team created, and take some time this weekend to be creative! Happy crafting!


  1. Love it, Michelle! Those rhinestones add some serious sparkle!

    You are really using up every piece of that DSP! I need your non-hoarding skills, please! ;)

  2. This is wonderful Michelle! I love how you have shown all of the patterns in this pack! And I miss you already too!

  3. Thank you, Ladies! I sent this card to my Mom for the world record at Convention.

    I miss you already, too, Ruthie! Thanks for your support while I was waiting for the shuttle to leave. YIKES! What a nail biter!

    Elizabeth, I do hoard paper, but this one pack calls my name!

    Next year, we'll have to stay a week after Convention to rest up and have fun together!
