OK, quickly now…

Last day of the month. Here’s my entry for the March Sketch For You To Try challenge. Just finished it, and need to get my makeup on and out of the house in 15 minutes. This is a no-frills post:

The card. This pretty much sums up how I’ve been feeling lately.

IHP Design Team Challenge: Featuring Mint Motif

In honor of the March release of two new sets from Mint Motif (designed by the uber-talented Kimberly Crawford exclusively for i {heart} papers), the IHP design team is featuring Mint Motif sets in this month’s challenge.

march12IHP-MM My card uses the School Basics set. I stamped the notebook lines with Memento London Fog ink, and the words (mostly) in Memento Tuxedo Black, with a little Real Red thrown in for emphasis. The apple (also from that stamp set) is colored with Copic markers and cut out, then covered with Glossy Accents to give it shine and dimension. It’s popped up on a Sticky Thumb Dimensional Dot for even more dimension.

The patterned paper, including the ruler strip, are from the For the Record 12x12 Collection Kit (Echo Park).

For my layout, I used this week’s Mojo Monday sketch

Would you like to join us in this challenge? Kate has set up a Mr. Linky on her blog so you can post your project. Just take your inspiration from any of the Design Team’s challenge projects, and use products from IHP. They don’t even have to be Mint Motif stamps (but if you have some, why not take them out for a spin!). At the end of the week, the Design Team will select one of the submissions to win a featured spot on Kate’s blog! You have until 6:00 pm (ET) Sunday to submit.

Take a look at what the rest of the Design Team came up with and get inspired!

I can’t wait to see what YOU come up with!
