A new sketch challenge - A Beautiful Thing

My friend Mary Jo Price Williams -- AKA Technostamper -- just started a brand new blogger's sketch challenge, and I am proud to be part of it. I haven't really done many sketch challenges, so this was interesting for me. Watch my blog each Monday for the "Technostamper's Monday Lunchtime Sketch." I hope to participate on as many Mondays as possible. Take a look at Mary Jo's Blog to see who else is participating -- she will have a list posted at noon EST.


Here is the sketch we used for our creations:

I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s stamp set " A Beautiful Thing", along with some of the papers from SU!'s Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper. I have to say, I just love these papers and the colors...I think they are my all-time favorite SU papers. I distressed the heck out of the papers, added a few layers, and viola!

Thanks for stopping by today! I have lots of stuff to show you tomorrow, too!
