OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge #109

Good Monday Evening,

Hope everyone has had a good President's Day weekend.  I was busy with the sketch -- tried 3 different variations.  I thought I would try one of Doodle Pantry's digis.  They sure have a great selection and it is sure nice of them sponsoring this weeks challenge.  I found a couple I liked and purchased.  Well, I have a new iMac (I was a PC person before) and I guess I am technically challenged or I don't have the right software. I did manage to get one digi printed and reduced small enough that I could use on a card -- it still larger than I wanted but I said, enough is enough -- and just used what I finally got printed.  So I finished that card up today.  It is a bit fussy -- and a challenge to do but still fun.

Enjoy the rest of the week and thanks for stoppin' in.  I would also like to say thank you for all nice comments I've received on previous posts.  I know it takes time to visit but it is so nice to get the feedback.

Thanks again,

Sharon




I call this card my fussy card -- I used a digi from Doodle Pantry - Fancy Shoes.
The DP is from old stash I've had it is by Deborah Rogers called Antique Shoes - Tea Bag Squares.
The sentiment -- I don't have a clue -- I have a set but they are separated from any ID as to who they are from.
I used an old small doily that I found on one of my treasure hunts in a thrift shop - I made the two stick pins I
used for the embellishment.

The mare and foal stamp is from SU as well as the brad and the punch I used for the flower.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts.  The DP is from Cosmo Cricket - their Wanted series.   The card
stock is from SU.

This card I tried to make French Country -- the stamp is from Dragonfly Laser.
The DP is from Colorbok -- the sentiment is made from an Alpha set by Studio g.
