IHP Birthday Bash – Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the i {heart} papers 2nd Birthday Bash! If you missed yesterday’s post, be sure to scroll down to participate in the scavenger hunt/blog hop to earn your 20% off coupon in Kate’s store (and see some really amazing projects from 25 incredible designers!)

Today’s challenge is a sketch challenge from Kate. IHPBB1010S Here’s my take on the sketch. I used paper from the DeLovely 6x6 pad, and the OCL set Sunshine Cheer.  I masked the cloud so the sun would be peeking out from behind it, and airbrushed the oval while it was still in the Nestabilities die with a light blue Copic marker (sorry, I put it bbsketch102010away before noting which one it was!) The little bling-y flowers are from the Hero Arts Sparkle Gems Small Blossoms, but there was no orange in the set, so I colored a couple of the yellow ones with an orange Copic marker. Luscious orange silk ribbon accents the middle of the card.

We’d love to have you play along for a chance to win a prize – it’s a super-easy and versatile sketch. Be sure to post your direct link on Kate’s post, either as a comment or in Mr. Linky, and tag your uploads with IHPBB10S. 

Tomorrow Deb will be hosting another challenge for you.
Winners for each day will be randomly drawn from the day's challenge entries, and everyone who plays along, either with the challenges and/or the scavenger hunt will be eligible for the grand prize drawing that will close the festivities on Friday.

Additionally, ALL orders placed during the Bash (Oct 19-21) will receive a free goodie bag of surprise merchandise. The more you spend, the bigger your goodie bag!

Also, there will be random drawings for additional prizes from our Paper Craft Planet group members, our mailing list (sign up on the right side of the store’s homepage) and our fans on Facebook. If you are on all three, then you’ve got triple the chances to win!

I do hope you’ll play along. Deadline to enter is Friday morning 3AM EST.
