Sassy Lil Sketches Reveal

It's a new month at Sassy Lil Sketches, and time for a new challenge.  I want to let you know now that all sketches - layout and card - will be on one blog.  Layout sketches on Tuesdays and card sketches on Thursday.  Here is Cherie's card sketch for the first week -


Amazing, right?  I was so inspired by the different details on this sketch, so here is my DT reveal -

This is the new Sonoma paper, and I think it has easily become my favorite already!  I love the smoky plum, olive, and bamboo colors together.  I used a couple of stamp sets - Love Life (what a fabulous set!) and Find Your Style (January 2011 Stamp of the Month).  The frame on the card is a dimensional element (we have so many different styles), and I've covered it with paper and sponged the edges.  People have asked me several times what adhesive I like when working with dimensional elements (like chipboard), and I find Bonding Memories the very best.  It has a strong hold and is very easy to use.

The card sponor this month is My Favorite Things, and we'd love to have you play along!!
