♥ Simon Says... Dawny's Sketch! ♥

Happy Wednesday everyone!! You know what that means!! A new and FUN challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week, we have an amazing sketch by our super talented Dawny! (See Sketch Below) It is so versatile! You can flip it around or use any type shapes, they don't have to be exactly like the sketch, just as long as you follow the basics of it! But the one requirement is that you HAVE FUN!!


 This week the Simon Says DT are featuring stamps and/or dies by My Favorite Things. For my card, I used the Polka Dot Greetings Die and Stamp Set. (But actually only used the stamp from it.) I also used the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics. At first, I was going to layer the flowers but then decided to use only 1 layer for each to better match the flowers on the paper. I added some White Opal Liquid Pearls to the centers.

 The beautiful papers are from the Simple Stories Fabulous 6x6 Paper Pad. Love all the bright summery colors in this line!

Here is the fabulous sketch!!


And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!






Hubby and I are off to the airport to pick up my sister and brother-in-law! Woo-Hoo! We are all so excited!! Have a wonderful day!!
