i {heart} papers March Sketch Challenge

This month the i {heart} papers design team was given a sketch challenge by team member Kendra Wietstock. I loved the simplicity of this sketch, although I'm sure it could be gussied up as fancy as you wanted it to be.

I decided to put the focus on the beautiful papers that Kate has in the store now -- these are from the SEI Bridgeport collection. You can see in the picture how some elements of the paper are shiny embossed, and how shimmery the ribbon is.

What I used:
Stamps: Birthday Cupcake
Ink: Palette Noir
Paper: Garden Tour, Bordeaux, Springside (yes, I used the "B" side of this gorgeous paper!)
Other: Nestabilities, Lime Glimmer Ribbon, Eva glazed brads (could also use Bittersweet brads)

Check out Kate and the rest of the design team throughout the day to see their takes on the sketch. And feel free join in the fun yourself! Kendra is running a CONTEST on her blog using this sketch, and she'll be giving away a PRIZE!!!!
