Go-To-Sketches Blog Hop

Hey Everybody,

I'm participating in the Go-To-Sketches Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Crafts today. I find sketches to be so incredibly fun. All the hard work is done and you get the sheer pleasure of just playing with products and creating. You can follow them super closely or use them as a jumping point. Either way, I dare ya not to have fun with it.



So, Go-To Gal Betsy Veldman asked me to create a card based on the following sketch.



And here's my spin on it.



I cut the square grid with my Silhouette and glittered it with some chunky Martha Stewart Crafts clear glitter. Had to laugh at myself because it was the first time I tapped the keg, so to speak, on that jar of glitter. Once I poured it out, I had a hard time getting it all back in! Lose glitter is not a good thing. They really pack it in there. More value for your money, huh? So next time you tap one of those jars initially, make sure you have a lot to glitter.

Other products: Butterfly Dreams and Daily Design Sentiments by PTI, True Black Perfect Match Ink, Butterfly die, Pretty Pastels and Egg Hunt Paper Collections, EK Success photo label punch.
