Celebrating Life!


Hello and welcome to my Wednesday post for Isabella's Sketchbook. This week's challenge is "Anything Goes" combined with an Isabella's Sketchbook image. We thought it would be a great week to relax, kick back and enjoy the summer. So check your inventory of Isabella's Sketchbook images, pick one out and have a go. You could win two of Isabella's delightful images. The one I used is called Cup Stack and I don't believe it's available yet. I digitally paper pieced it, including the background of the image panel using the Sweet Violets digital paper pack from Designer Digitals. I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch and also lined the colors up with this week's Just For Fun Color Challenge which is to use purple, green and blue.

The die cuts were cut with a Cuttlebug die, the embossing folder used was from Stampin' Up! I used two different Spellbinders dies, the sentiment was a lovely freebie from Ann Vento at Raindrop Echo Designs/Sentimental Sundays Challenge. You can buy her digital sentiments from Whimsey Stamps. The mini library clip is from SU and the button is from Jo-Ann's.

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Now it's time to stop by Isabella's Sketchbook Challenge Blog and the blogs of my teamies. I do so hope you will be able to play along with us this week!

Gorgeous Linda ! When I saw this image I have to admit I was wondering how I was going to use it, but now I've seen your card I am inspired ! Just wish I knew how to digitally paper piece ! Sue x

P.S. Thanks for the kind thoughts for my Mum.

You. Have. The. Coolest. Knack. For. Conceptual. Cards.
Really.
And you have interpreted the sketch so cleverly, I recognized the sketch right away, yet it was not another typical approach!!!
You are COOL, woman!!!

Beautiful card Linda, I love what you did with those cups! I almost used the same image but I couldn't get a clean cut inside the handles. Yours looks great!
