You Make Me Smile

I have combined a couple of my favorite challenges into one card today. I used the sketch with a twist from the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #51 and the colors from the Market Street Stamps Color Cue Challenge #2

I thought this would make a great any day type of card so I used this perfect sentiment from Emma's Turn That Frown Upside Down set. I also stamped these adorable little Market Street Stamps starfish onto some textured cardstock. Then I inked them, colored in the little stitching and the eye whites and then added a little chalk for their cheeks. I also pop-dotted them up which was the twist to the sketch challenge.

I also decided to add this new creation to Alex's (You Had Me at Craft) new weekly link-up party. There are some pretty cute creations over there. If you get some time you might want to head over and take a look.

Items Used:

*My Creative Time stamps- Turn That Frown Upside Down
*Market Street Stamps - Sea Animals
*Fiscars Border Punch - Effervescence
*Lemondrop twine from The Twinery
*Ink in various colors for LOTS of inking
*Sakura White Gellyroll Pen
*Zig Markers

Thanks to my friend Pam for the skittles and the border punch :). It is always fun to have some new stuff to play with.

    Thanks for the comments on the "Storage" post. That's the same type of drawer I use for my wooden stamps. They do seem to be ideal for this and it makes me feel good to know somebody else does this too.
